Know your Gear! Passion for the outdoors!

Planner (Former Employee) Park City, UT

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

ConsLow 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 Senior ManagementPay your employees more - Park city is not a cheap place to live.

Be creative in your rewards for these… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
