    Pros

    nice offices, open mindset of my boss, willingness to experiment and try new things, earnest co-workers

    Cons

    Sometimes the owners/leaders of the company are only 90% willing to walk the walk

    Advice to Management

    Enforce accountability in small ways. Yes, modeling it is important, yet there are times when some small unilateral rules are needed

    Pros

    I've been an employee at REI for 8 years and I'm very proud to say this. No company is perfect but REI really goes the distance to make employees happy. Winning one of the Top Workplaces award really exemplifies this. It was the employees who provided the nominations so that tells you that the majority of the staff enjoy working here. My assumption is that many of the negative remarks posted here are by employees who were asked to leave REI because they were poor performers and also it looks like a small number of these employees are putting up multiple posts to drive REI's rating down.

    Cons

    Some managers could benefit from soft skills training so they can better relate to their employees. The 360 review process and the hiring of a professional/personal coach is helping to address this need.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to make investments in our employees. We have come a long way in the last 2 years and it really shows. Please keep this positive momentum going!

    Pros

    Hard working people, great benefits, awesome teams/culture
    The founder of the company has hired a fulltime people coach to give support to the employees...seriously who does that? This is how much the management cares about their employees
    Well deserved recognition for being ranked number 11!!!

    Cons

    Some managers are micro managers - but last year has been all about improvement in this area

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing - listening to all your emlpoyees

    I have been working at REI Systems full-time

    Pros

    I have been working at REI Systems for ~3 months and I have never been so happy to go to work in the morning. Everyone is very friendly and working hours are very flexible, allowing your life to be more than work. REI managers also challenge you and work with you to advance your career to the next step. Professional development hours are very helpful in expanding your skillset as REI encourages continuous improvement for every employee. Management is very reactive to any employee concerns and always works to fully engage employees.

    Cons

    Salary raises could be more frequent but there is an initiative in place in an attempt to mediate this.

    Advice to Management

    Some managers are not effective so there should be more thorough management reviews as to ensure only the best managers are directing their employees, which will limit attrition.

    Pros

    I cant think of any

    Cons

    HR is protected and so are the managers. No matter what unethical things occur in the workplace HR will not go to bat for you because they are intimidated by senior leadership and the managers who have relationships with these executives.

    Managers who are "in" with senior leadership have carte blanche to do what they want, when they want and to whom they want even when the actions are not warranted.

    I do not recommend working here and I am surprised there have not been any lawsuits laid down upon this company with the way they have treated individuals. Plenty of other good opportunites in the area for you. Keep looking!
