I have been working at Rawlings full-time for more than 10 years
Pros – It's Rawlings? I mean, really if you are a die hard baseball or sporting goods guy, then yeah I suppose this is one of those marquee / pedigree names to go work for. Owned by Jarden corporation (huge holding company) so the benefits are pretty good, and I suppose there is some stability there.
Cons – Culture is so lame, pay is low for the industry and the executive team is having trouble setting a clear course for the business. Process change is constant. Yes this is everywhere, but at Rawlings it is so painful it brings tears. Want a promotion? Go somewhere else. Wan't a clear career path? Look elsewhere.
Advice to Senior Management – Improve the culture first, then the employees may be more malleable to change.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

I have been working at Rawlings full-time for more than 3 years
Pros – Rawlings is a reputable company that has been around for many years. They have employee sales where you can get great deals on sporting goods equipment.
Cons – The more intelligent and hardworking you are, the more they want out of you while others play games on their computers or smoke. The hard workers end up leaving and they never get rid of the dead weight.
Advice to Senior Management – Conduct in depth interviews and hire more intelligent people even if they cost more.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
