    I have been working at Trek Bicycle

    Pros

    Work here if you enjoy the cycling industry. Very good medical benefits and product discounts. The company is definitely positioning itself for future success. Great time to join the team.

    Cons

    There are certain divisions that have very strong leaders while other departments have very poor incompetent leaders. Some managers lack vision. Communcation across departments tends to struggle.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep encouraging employees to advance their education then promote them. Too many leaders lack the formal training required to do their job well.

    I have been working at Trek Bicycle

    Pros

    This is the place to be if you like fitness and cycling in particular. Trek is one of the leaders in the industry, so your work is at the cutting edge of new products, latest trends, and industry practices. A well-equipped in-house gym/locker room, private MTB trail system, good road rides and run, and a culture of daily, lunchtime (a flexible window during the day) group or individual workouts really sets Trek apart from other places I've worked. Trek is growing and adopting new ideas which makes the work part of every day enjoyable as well. There are countless opportunities to push the limits and make improvements.

    Cons

    As with any company, your experience will vary depending on your manager and team members. I see both here at Trek. There are new practices and approaches being taken which can cause resistance and difficulty at times. Growth has been fast, and all of the different systems are not always in the best shape. But that too continues to improve.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep improving and streamlining. Continue to bring in the best people, not settling for convenient or just acceptable. This is a great place to work. Let's not forget about the home and family balance as well as the great culture of riding and exercising, but with that, let's keep driving to be that absolute best, not only in our industry, but as THE model for all businesses.
