I have been working at The North Face full-time for less than a year

Pros

Industry leading product, overall great work environment, great opportunities to move up.

Cons

While the people in the company are generally great, there are a few older employees that have lost their joy for the job and let it bring themselves and everyone else down. For some reason it's difficult to get these people to move on.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get into deeper communication than the standard business jargon. Get to a managers motivations and aspirations, and the numbers with follow.

    I worked at The North Face

    Pros

    Some of the best products on the market for a great price as an employee, a great sense of family, community and teamwork

    Cons

    Some of the managers can be less than great but 99% of them were terrific. unpredictable schedule at times and as with any retail shop, holidays...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Relax. if you hire good people they will do their jobs. you dont need to stay on top of them and follow every rule to a "t" every time

    I have been working at The North Face

    Pros

    Profitable fast growing company, high quality product, talented employees, good work-life balance, no mean people. Competent management dedicated to moving the company in the right direction.

    Cons

    IT systems are outdated and slow down productivity, Lotus notes for an email program. Location too far away from civilization. No cafeteria. Salaries below market rate, making it hard to attract talent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Modernize systems and pay market rate.
