Pros

Fun place to work - Great people
I love what we sell and what we do.

Cons

Low pay unless they recruited you from a fancier company.
They say there is great work life gal;acne - but in reality there isn't. (depends on your boss and department) You do get to go skiing in the mornings it snows.
Senior management - They can talk the talk but can't walk the walk

Advice to Management

Pay your employees more - Park city is not a cheap place to live.

    Pros

    Most people don't care what you do as long as you do your job nothing more nothing less.

    Cons

    Very few meaningful internal promotions and when they do happen it so they don't have to pay for a outside person who would demand a "reasonable" salary.

    Advice to Management

    Like they would actually listen.

    The atmosphere is very laid back and chill and you couldn't find a better set of coworkers!

    Pros

    It's easy to cross train in several areas to keep things from getting to stagnant and boring. Hiring for higher positions is done internally a lot, so it's not impossible to move up the chain. The coworkers are so fun and easy-going, mostly everyone enjoys being active and it wasn't uncommon to have someone come to work with mud on their clothes from a bike ride they just finished before work. And you get sweet perks on the merch!

    Cons

    It does get a little repetitive and some days your brain forgets to work... Around Christmas it is so busy you will be working overtime and really late and the warehouse reaches full capacity so it's hard to find empty spots to put anything, but you still have to keep your numbers up!

    Advice to Management

    I loved the benefits we get- discount, use of the gear closet, steezy award.
