Former Employee - Planner in Park City, UT
Former Employee - Planner in Park City, UT

I worked at Backcountry.com full-time (more than 3 years)

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 ManagementAdvice

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