    I have been working at W.L. Gore full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, flexible schedule, consistent work, fair salary and great co workers.

    Cons

    Gore does not understand how to handle high achievers, there tends to be gridlock in advanced positions which can lead to those high achievers becoming discouraged by the motonous nature of the job.

    Advice to Management

    There are a lot of great ideas lying right below the surface, if there was more cultivation of ideas by members of leadership versus maintaining the status quo it may lead to higher morale and a more profitable business.
