    I have been working at SRAM full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    SRAM values you! They want you to be healthy and happy, they want your family to be healthy. They understand that an employee has responsibilities outside of work and as long as you get your work done and are an efficient employee you have the freedom to take care of yourself and your family. They value leadership training, and training associated with your position. They believe in continuing education.

    Cons

    Some departments work in a bit of a silo, "us versus them" mentality, though I would say this is the minority.

    Pros

    Ability to define your own role. Large company with a lot of opportunity. Great benefits. Accessible executive management.

    Cons

    Good ol' boys club. Sometimes it felt more like a men's locker room than a business. A lot of politics and personal issues between department heads created barriers to getting things done. A lot of disrespectful, passive-aggressive, unprofessional colleagues

    Advice to Management

    Trim the fat. There are a lot of people that are taking advantage of the company's generosity. Hold people accountable for their behavior.


  6. Passionate company, great product tradition, but needs to mature with leadership and employee development.

    I have been working at SRAM full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Folks are passionate about there work and sharing that passion with others in the Indusrty. Good product perks and industry benefits from industry network. Potential for travel and working or transferring to other domestic or international locations. Real corporate culture to grown cycling and support cycling infrastructure growth. Low turnover.

    Cons

    Cross functional support is tough. As they grow through acquiring other companies, overcoming cultural differences between different locations is challenging. They lack a tradition of mentoring younger managers or defining a career path in any capacity. Pay could be more competitive, but perks and travel can offset here.

    Advice to Management

    Ask questions of staffers on the ground and engaging customers. Provide a clearer definition of career possibilities and opportunities for growth. Create a tradition of mentorship and nurture an environment of learning by creating time for it. Maintain the enthusiasm, passion, and support to grow the sport and industry.

    Cons

    -At risk of being a fun company with good products instead of a great company with fun products -Too great of an emphasis on exact cycling cultural fit might keep out valuable technical contributors -Advancement paths are not entirely clear

    Advice to Management

    Stan Day is the most inspirational leader anyone could want. Kind of like a kindly uncle you never want to disappoint.

    Pros

    Very good company to work for. Good benefits, relaxed environment, easy to get excited about the product. Most departments are very well run and easy to work for. They appreciate your service and let that be known.

    Cons

    There are a some managers that have tunnel vision for everything they do so they fail to recognize or even care about their people. Do not have an "off year".

    Advice to Management

    Don't be so narrow minded. Care about your people. Is the perception real or just an opinion? What is really going on?
