    Pros

    Great people to work with. 60% employee discount. Normal benefits, plus some unique ones to Pearl Izumi. Fitness culture, both cycling and running.

    Cons

    There are no cons as far as I'm concerned. The reason I left is that my dream job became available and I couldn't turn it down.

    Pros

    Great company to work for. Very relaxed and creative environment with an opportunity to grow. Definitely one of the best retailers to work for.

    Most stores are located in an outlet mall. The hours stretch late into the night. Would be better to work in a mall.

    Better store locations

    I have been working at Pearl Izumi

    Pros

    Work schedules are usually quite flexible. Working with athletically minded people helps to keep yourself fit. Employee discounts are satisfactory.

    Cons

    Senior management is incompetent and doesn't respond to employee suggestions. Unwilling or unable to accept changes in modern retail and to support social media initiatives. Not adept at tapping the talents of its Sales Associates.
