I worked at Orvis Company full-time (more than an year)

Pros

At a time they had wonderful and unique items, and buyers that went all over the world.

Cons

They got rid of a fabulous manager and hired a terrible one. Fly-fishing and outdoor merchandise is some of the best with the knowledge base to sell it, rest of the clothing skews bland and older now.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Outdoor clothing companies are madly followed and inspire fashion trends. You could use a tastemaker in there.

    I worked at Orvis Company

    Pros

    I really enjoyed my time working at Orvis. The town and setting was absolutely beautiful and I progressed through a number of roles that I found challenging over the years. As in any work setting, my work experiences varied depending on my direct manager, but most of the people I worked for were supportive and I felt as though we were partners. Being a mid-sized company allowed me the chance to learn a lot of different skills while still having substantial exposure to upper management.

    Cons

    While Manchester is a beautiful town, it's a difficult place for two career oriented people to make it work since there are not many other employers. My impression is also that the salaries are somewhat lower here because of the lack of direct competition.
