I was so disappointed. Callaway is the good old boys club.

    I worked at Callaway Golf full-time

    Pros

    short hours, fun employee base, if you like golf its cool to see all the pros, decent pay, free range balls, benefits still ok but way worse than they used to be, nice office location

    Cons

    Sr Management, very few employees left, annual layoffs, marketing, sku proliferation, unrealistic expectations of performance, lose money annually, no bonuses (well you can earn them but the goals are unrealistic), no great tour players

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think the company might be doing some things correct by getting out of a ton of businesses that never made money (just not sure why they waited so long). They need to fix the marketing quick and somehow find a way to create demand for their products. Consumers are being trained that they can wait 3 months and get the same products for way less. Ideally they find a PE group to take them private so they arent constantly chasing numbers that are unrealistic.
