    Former Employee - Executive Vice President Marketing in Carlsbad, CA

    I worked at Callaway Golf full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I liked the team atmosphere. Designated team for a new product coming out and can brainstorm ideas together and actually make some of these crazy and wild ideas come to fruition. There's lots of flexibility in the ways that products are marketed- the company is doing a great job with staying on top of social media outlets as mean of communication and marketing. Fun environment overall.

    Cons

    Salary is the one aspect of the job which could be better, There have been a lot of cuts recently in corporate, so there is always a fear of getting laid off- company seems to be on the rise, so hopefully that fear will dwindle.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let the younger employees take on more responsibility. When I was younger, if I was given the chance to take the lead on a project it would have helped my leadership skills and even my creativeness.

    Great company to work for. Plenty of challenges, opportunities and great people. If you have a passion for golf and want to be in the industry, this is the place to work.

    Revolving layoffs plague the company, and Taylor Made has been kicking their butt in the market place for over 6 years now.

    I have been working at Callaway Golf full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Callaway provides an opportunity for employees to develop their own vision, implement it, and see it through. The management team has fostered a culture that is centered on passion and hard work-- and that's very rewarding.

    Cons

    The cons are perhaps working within an industry that is high growth that can lead to strong YOY growth, etc. However it is within an industry that I'm passionate about and the culture and attitude reflects that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to find talent that is passionate about golf but has the ability to manage, inspire, and move organizations forward.
