REI is leading the pack.

Supervisor (Current Employee)
Seattle, WA

ProsREI's retirement compensation is met no where else. Work-life balance is encouraged. And REI's co-op model is a great business model and lesson for the industry and outside the industry.

Also, REI is committed to promoting within, including development support and opportunities.

ConsTimelines for promoting are much shorter if you are interested in relocating. But this is really because jobs are so competitive at REI.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep it up. I think it is amazing that four of our senior leaders started out on the frontlines helping customers.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
