    A good company to work for overall but there are some cons

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Columbia, SC

    ProsPure Fishing is part of a larger company called Jarden which offers a lot of benefits such as healthcare, stock purchase plan, discounts on items manufactured by Jarden and other brands geared toward an outdoor lifestyle.

    Most of the people you come into contact at the company are very personable and genuine.

    ConsThe cons depend on what department you work in. No workplace is perfect but the blame game and getting thrown under the bus happens a lot.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great people, no incentive

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Spirit Lake, IA

    ProsI worked with a fantastic group of people that I consider friends. They have great products and people that love and believe in them. Benefits package is above average. Health insurance is good and inexpensive.

    ConsNo incentive to give your best. In 9+ years I received no merit raises or promotions despite above average performance. Always seemed to be understaffed in my department. I kept getting more job responsibilities but did not see my pay rate go up in the same manner.

    Advice to Senior ManagementReward your employees for their hard work.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good organization, a few rockstar managers / employees, good friendly people (and a couple bad apples)

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsOverall, a good organization in a good industry. Compensation and work/life acceptable. Nice discount on all Jarden companies. Good friends to work with.

    ConsSome knee jerk reactions to quarterly financials. The company merged with Shakespeare 2-3 yrs ago and hasn't stopped tumultuous change since. A couple of strong personalities in senior positions. Some negative favoritism.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSenior managers should look strongly at each other and remove the bad egg(s).
