Pros

If 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.

Cons

If 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 Management

Continue 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.

    Pros

    People treat you and each other respectfully Wide range of freedom to choose commitments and work in areas of interest You are trusted and allowed to make mistakes Creativity and innovation are valued Others willingly help you Long term view of people, products, markets

    Cons

    You need to feel comfortable with ambiguity in your commitment area Some projects don't work out and you have to be willing to pick up new ones Not the kind of place where everyone conforms and does it the same way; each plant is different

    Advice to Management

    Keep the culture alive by resisting the pressure to be just like other companies

    The ideology of Gore culture is great, but a great sham as it becomes a shield for lowest level of office politics.
