    Columbia is a great company that has some serious issues to iron out at the retail store level

    Pros

    Amazing product, incredible technology, a brand that is very easy to get behind and be passionate about, good benefits and a corporate team that is available to help

    Cons

    corporate retail manager that was hired to lead the division was condescending, played favorites and was completely unsupportive of upward growth and promotion.

    Pros

    Casual workplace, on site cafe, great clothing discounts.

    The company is very financially solid so I don't worry about my job disappearing.

    Cons

    tend to promote from the outside so career growth can be limited. No onsite parking for mid to lower end employees.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a better long term facility plan, and give guidance to employees. Look to promote current employees before bringing in new from other companies.
