Pros

Relaxed, open, clean environment to work in with like minded people for a not so hot wage. Keeping the work load in mind, the pay was pretty spot on. There are tons of perks (i.e. free swag, cheap swag, flexible hours, free benefits [to some] and a plethora of other good and different policies).

Cons

It is, after all, just retail. No matter who the company, retail is retail is retail. Also, patagonia is obviously very focused on sustainability. Sustainable growth often means slow growth; here you'll see that's exactly the case. When you get a higher up position within the company at large, you stay - it's good spot to be. That makes it a bit difficult for aspiring young adults (such as myself) to climb the ladder with efficiency you can find in other outdoor retailers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

larger bonuses (possibly more than a maximum of one yearly) to reduce on retail staff turnover.

    Pros

    There is a very relaxed working environment, great discounts (sometimes free) on clothes and gear from other outdoor companies, great company agenda and motive, generally friends coworkers and customers, reasonable in terms of breaks and days off, no late nights or early mornings, opportunities for Environmental Grant work

    Cons

    Standing all day, very little room for real career advancement, low pay in general (good for the industry as a whole, but still not alot overall)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Doing a good job!
