    Pros

    Pure 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.

    Cons

    The 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.

    I worked at Pure Fishing full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    I 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.

    Cons

    No 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 ManagementAdvice

    Reward your employees for their hard work.

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

    I worked at Pure Fishing

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Some 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    the top fishing tackle company in the world, innovative products differentiate the marketing strategy and add to the brand values. good communications throughout the regions.

    Cons

    too many brand to handle, needed to categorize them and to have marketing director for each brand, to create eco products.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    suggested looking at ways to clarify the strategic intent of Purefishing sustainability activity and better align it with overall corporate strategy.
