    I have been working at Motorcycle Superstore full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great team members who are willing to mentor and help people learn.
    Excellent Benefits- about the best in the Rogue Valley.
    Newly formed social committee to make work fun and give back to the community.
    Beautiful building and work environment.

    Cons

    Lots of change due to recent merger, hopefully will be better once it settles.
    Could use some better internal communications.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More clear path of career progression and learning opportunities would be great, maybe tuition reimbursement as well.
    Really appreciate the Town Hall (company information meetings). It is nice to get a view of the big picture and what other teams are doing.

    I have been working at Motorcycle Superstore full-time

    Pros

    Decent benefits- health insurance, 401k matching, employee discount. Nice office space, although cubicles. The longer your employment the better and worse it is- depending on manager for the better part.

    Cons

    Company is going through growing pains. Working on transparency but failing miserably at it. Most of the management not very qualified to handle the growth. Too many meetings about meetings to set up more meetings! Not open to new ideas. Sexism is still prevalent in the workplace.

    I have been working at Motorcycle Superstore full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    20 employees ride motorcycles and most coworkers and pretty cool. Location and office layout is nice.

    Cons

    The other 100 employees do not ride motorcycles or know anything about them. The pay is very low. They promise raises and salary increases but pay cuts take place instead . Within the past year they've laid off 30-40 good, low-paying employees just to continue funding the six-figure salaries of management. Working with upper management is a joke. There are so many egotistical personalities between the President, GM, 10+ VP's and 20+ Directors, it's quite tough to be heard. Your direct boss will make 3-4 times your salary and won't know how to manage you or your department.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't even know where to begin

    Pros

    There are some genuinely talented people still working at Motorcycle Superstore.
    If you enjoy taking risks, working here would rank pretty high on the riskiest career moves you can take right now.

    Cons

    The company is in a downward spiral and shows no sign of righting itself until the current president and a number of leaders are removed.
    The new leadership fired 90% of the people who made this company successful and is known for throwing anyone under the bus to cover themselves, even 10+ year employees and supposed friends.
    While there are a couple exceptions, the majority of the new leadership lacks the ability to execute. Some of them are there after flunking out of other companies for the same level of incompetence.
    In my opinion, the president is truly one of the least trustworthy and least genuine people I have ever met. He is the person who put a face to the term 'backstabber' for me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Providing advice to the current management team would be pointless. The current management will be removed soon enough for being incompetent.

    Once was great, now...not so much.

    I have been working at Motorcycle Superstore

    Pros

    Was great once upon a time. Prior to the recent acquisition, it was a tight knit family that would make anybody proud to be a part of it.

    Cons

    The pride is gone. Site updates have slowed and the inspirational folks have been let go. Just another run-of-the-mill place to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the folks around that have made everybody's dreams of a great place to work a reality and quit showing them the door.

    I worked at Motorcycle Superstore as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Very friendly environment. Very personable developers. Devs are willing to help out interns and catch us up to speed and teach us industry skills regularly.

    Cons

    Tight schedules mean interns are sometimes pushed to the wayside before deadlines.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create stricter standards for coding style and structure.

    Pros

    Great team, good hardware, open to new ideas, and always looking to go out of their way to try and create the best online product.

    Cons

    Major intrusion from overhead, non IT/Development, stakeholders at times. President of the company often denounces the expertise of his employees by saying "just do it the way I want".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let the people you hired do what they do best. "Just do it the way I said" is rarely the best answer.
