    Pros

    Some great people at REI. The pro deals can't be beat. Good health benefits.

    Cons

    Staff is overworked, work life balance varies by director, employees feel a sense of fear that they could be laid off at any time. Layoffs are covered up by managers blaming performance and leaving employees confused and embarrassed. Managers and Directors who don't embrace REI values (or do anything in the outdoors for that matter) are hired, and make changes that have negative impacts across the company. Technology is not supported with enough staff to maintain it. Leadership is not open to change or suggestions, unless it is their change or their suggestions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn and Live REI culture and activities. Be open to change in ways that you wouldn't be in a cutthroat environment. Realize you don't have all the answers.
