    I have been working at Marmot full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great Job, easy going atmosphere, lowest stress job I've ever had. Excellent benefits, and lots of vacation time, awesome staff.

    Cons

    No room for advancement, retail division not growing as fast as originally anticipated. No commission either, which could be good.

    I worked at Marmot full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Can be a fun environment, does provide some perks in terms of merchandise discounts, early outs and very small bonuses that they make you feel lucky to receive. Those in the trenches have a lot of fun together.

    Cons

    Terrible management. Mid level managers work against their direct reports, not with them. Terrible communication. Undermining. Most managers have little to no education and have no idea what they are doing in terms of people management. All managers are micro managers. Absolutely terrible pay and vast differences in pay types. Most people aren't held to same HR standards; Some design department employee's come and go as they please and rarely work eight hours contrasted with other departments that make far less money and beg for over time, but aren't allowed. Customer Service is required to work some Saturdays for training...not for customers. HR department is unreachable and works against you. Good luck getting a review...some years you get one, some years you don't and sometimes you get it after you notice you have received a 2% pay raise! Poor behavior and poor performing employee's allowed to continue their bad habits effecting other departments. Terrible 401k contribution-if at all. This company also uses a ton of paper. Employee's print emails to "CYA". There is absolutely no environmental policy in terms of paper and energy usage-which is rare in the outdoor industry. Management sure likes to travel and play golf, and fish, and ski. Design department often travels to China to do the exact same job they do in the office here-further dragging down company profitability and accelerating their carbon footprint.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This company needs a total shake up. From the very top down. It could be an absolutely awesome place to work with much happier and much more productive employee's. But, management (in my experience) is not open to any sort of feedback. HR department is completely uneducated in Human Resources and this is very evident. Good employee's typically stay a year or two then move on to competing brands. It seems to me that management is more interested in hiring people that they can control rather than hiring people to better support their team.
