I have been working at REI full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

People with shared excitement for the outdoors, great gear perks, well-respected brand and retailer. It's exciting to hear from customers and members every day, telling us how much they love REI.

Cons

Somewhat slow-moving decision making processes, growing pains from "small co-op" to "large, successful company."

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Change is hard but it's necessary and good. Stay the course, and know that not everyone will be happy with your decisions. Just make them as best as you can, and keep moving. I, for one, am looking forward to the coming years and what they bring.

    Pros

    Everyone is nice, good benefits, caring company, management is encouraging, positive work atmosphere.

    Cons

    very few cons in my experience. Some other employees have complained about being occasionally scheduled with closing shifts one day and opening shifts the next, but that's really not that bad.
