    I have been working at Specialized Bicycle full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone who works here is inspired and passionate about what they do, and the product they are creating. The owner, Mike Sinyard, is in almost every day and accessible. This is why the company is successful. The owner is engaged in the day to day ops.

    Cons

    There are no negatives to working here, in my opinion.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. Management is supportive and collaborative.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Specialized Bicycle.

    Interview

    I was referred directly to the recruiter for this program, having worked closely with Specialized previously from the retail side.

    I emailed the recruiter directly, applied online, followed up a couple weeks later just in case the email had gotten lost... no response, not even a rejection.

    That's just not something a company that is serious about respecting its potential talent would do, speaking from experience having worked everywhere from two-person operations to Fortune 100 companies.

    As far as I can tell, my experience and qualifications match the job description fully, and it’s disappointing that not only will I not be pursuing further opportunities with Specialized, I will also hesitate to refer other bike industry friends to apply.
