    I worked at W.L. Gore full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Relaxed work environment, no dress code, loosely choose working schedule, freedom to do pretty much whatever floats your boat.

    Cons

    Lots of cliques, politics, good old boy's club, localism, and the pay sucks. Due to lack of heirarchy there are no promotions, and thus no way to make stepwise changes to your salary. After 5 years I was still making $69k as a mechanical engineer, whereas my peers working at other companies quickly surpassed me. When I finally decided to leave I immediately got a $20k salary increase while still staying in Flagstaff. New ideas are quashed by the old timers who want to retire comfortably without having to gain any new knowledge. This kind of environment is a killer for young talent wanting to stay current with industry standards. New talent is better off staying for a few years to get it on the resume, and then leaving before they stagnate and become useless elsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more competitively, promote new ideas, try to be a little more up with the times by promoting the ideas of the next generation of engineers.
