I am proud of the products we make and the incredible energy and commitment that my fellow associates put into them.

Corporate Services (Current Employee) Newark, DE

ProsIf you are up for the challenge, opportunities for growth are always there. Cool science abounds in the products that Gore makes. Freedom and flexibility make working at Gore more rewarding. Fellow associates quickly become your best friends. Leadership associates really do try to be fair with their teams and maintain a great working environment.

ConsIf you have to be told what to do everyday, then this isn't the company for you. If you aren't comfortable with speaking up and expressing thoughts and opinions, then this isn't the company for you.

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to get out and walk around the building to find out what associates are working on. Leadership meetings can easily consume one's schedule and leave no time for it. Most associates love to talk about what they are doing and why it matters to the enterprise.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Limited Career Path but good work-life balance

    Product Specialist (Current Employee) Elkton, MD

    I have been working at W.L. Gore

    Pros: Gore has excellent benefits and an ASOP plan (Associate Stock Plan). All Associates (employees) are given company stock (a fixed percent of your… Cons: Salaries and raises are poor. Despite record setting profitability, only a very small percentage of people get raises. If you are an experienced… Advice to Senior Management: ELT depends too much on the Divisional Leadership Teams for information (like a hierarchy). They need to reach deeper and around the hierarchy… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
