    Pros

    Not a lot of OT. Good work-life balance. Most employee have nice sized offices with windows. Located in a cool neighborhood and close to downtown Seattle.

    Cons

    Low morale with employees hiding in their offices to make it through the day. Sacrificing quality of product for higher margins. Management out of touch with reality. Raises are very low, if at all.

    I have been working at Cutter & Buck full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Managers are typically easy to work with if a schedule needs to be changed or if time off is needed on short notice. The office is easy to get to and subsidized parking is available.

    Cons

    Benefits are horrible and pay has been stagnant for 6 years. Managers tend to be micro-managers instead of leaders. Upper management wears too many hats (ie they're in charge of multiple departments with their staff scattered throughout the office space and no true oversight of anyone). Very little opportunity for career growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train your people so they can leave but treat them so they don't want to.

    Pros

    40 hours a week. Nice co workers.

    Cons

    If you are a stocker or picker you will be trained by a Vietnamese man who speaks horrible English and will talk to you like you are stupid for asking a question when he has only showed you what to do once.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show your employees you appreciate them. Hire them when you say you will. Properly train your staff.

    I worked at Cutter & Buck full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    People are great, office location in Fremont is a huge plus. Work hours are manageable.

    Cons

    Very little direction from upper management. Forward momentum cannot be accomplished due to lack of resources. Many people have left the company and the ideals have changed over the last few years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a clear direction and stick with it.

    I worked at Cutter & Buck

    Pros

    The over all atmosphere was comfortable. The people working there are friendly and easy to work with.

    Little to no room for advancement. Corporate was very tight with money, there had been a two year wage freeze.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lay off acting like C&B is a big corporate company, treat your employees with respect and stop nit picking...

    I worked at Cutter & Buck full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good all around people, lovely work location, healthy industry.

    Cons

    Poor organization, poor management, poor vision, poor compensation plans.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Procure and listen to advice by experienced domestic talent. Don't try to force the European business model on a U.S. business, particularly where business depends on discretionary spend by clientele. Recognizing and embracing the differences in the U.S. and Europe marketplace and allowing the necessary resources to serve these markets will require a modicum of expenditure in the short term but result in tremendous market share growth and opportunities going forward. Be open, be accepting, understand the need to build and care for the reputation of the brand, look outside the box, become the fabulous brand that Cutter can be.
