Pros

Flexible schedule, employee discounts, incredible co-workers, company values.

Cons

Worklife balance can be questionable and varies from dept to dept. Change is very slow. They often times don't hire enough people to do the work and then wonder why the work product is mediocre.

Advice to Management

LISTEN to your people, when they tell you they are overworked, do something about it. Don't tell us to "stop/Start/Continue" and then never let us "stop" anything.

    Pros

    REI is a great place to work. Team members are very supportive and everyone's works well together to get the job done. Nowhere else I've ever been has encouraged having a work/life balance as much as REI. There are yoga class, crossfit, bike rides, and people who go running every day at lunch and everyone's always talking about their next great outdoor adventure. I had the opportunity to meet with Sally Jewell also and she is an outstanding leader for the company and easy to talk to.

    Cons

    Sometimes I felt I lacked a bit of the knowledge that it was assumed that I had, but there was always someone to go to for help or advice.
