I have been working at Callaway Golf full-time (less than an year)

Pros

People you work with, compensation, great perks (if you enjoy golf)

Cons

Limited advancement opportunities, poor middle management, frustrating lack of communication, not a creative environment, poor decisions continue to hurt this company, poor performance quarter after quarter

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire true project managers to manage large scale projects. Stop ridiculous spending when the company is in a 'turn-around' phase. Losing good people in favor of almost comical decisions.

    I worked at Callaway Golf full-time (more than 10 years)

    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.
