"High TURNOVER Rate -- The Finance team's 2017 YTD turnover rate is ~50% and that excludes the Planning LAYOFFS earlier in the year.

"Blue Nile is a fantastic place to work, especially on one of their development teams. Things move fast, so it's never dull but sometimes a little out of control. The programming is fairly basic so at times you may feel a bit code-monkeyish."

"It was definitely entry level job but I am glad I accepted the contract offer to do this work considering tough economic environment. I had to take humongous pay cut and the testing sprint finished promptly and testers were laid off."
