Company was not keeping current as the industry and workforce changed

Pros

Great people. Hopefully the recent changes to senior management at the company will make it a more progressive place to work. Benefits were good, but declining.

Cons

Challenging to work in a declining industry such as golf. Non-traditional work situations rarely taken into consideration (telecommuting, job sharing, alternate work hours). There were layoffs so regularly for the last 5 years that many of the people that were great at there jobs and role models have left the company or were laid off because they were highly compensated.

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

    Pros

    -Nice building -Good benefits -Some good looking girls

    Cons

    -Personal looks mean more than personal performance. -Have to be part of the boys club to get anywhere. -Bunch of 8 - 5 slackers. Even in R&D. -Lack of commitment to products. -Politics -Living in the past of the Bertha thinking eventually they'll get market share back.

    Advice to Management

    -Work! -Stop with the politics. -Commit fully to a product.
