    I have been working at Cabela's full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I love the culture in the building when it comes to passion for the outdoors. It's cool that almost every meeting involves someone telling a story about a recent fishing trip, camp out, or hunt. There's a real focus on the customer and doing the right thing for them. Entry level roles can have quick growth opportunity. Benefits are solid, but pretty much on par with comparable jobs/employers. Overall, a great place to work. I get up and come to work every morning with optimism that we're headed in the right direction.

    Cons

    The culture is highly collaborative. If you like working on your own and just "getting things done", it might be hard to adjust to how much inter-team and intra-team collaboration occurs.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on product value. We don't need to offer products at the lowest cost, but we need to not be the most expensive. Giving people the best value for their money will help us win.

    Pros

    Great company values
    Great customers
    Encourage internal growth and promotions
    Awesome discounts based on tenure, not position
    Great assortment of products

    Cons

    Suffering same retail payroll constraints as everyone else. Impossible tasking for hourly employees. Reduction in staffing at retail level is making Cabelas lose their customer service reputation. Recent restructuring 2014-2016 effected morale around the company.

    Advice to Management

    Watch out how thin you make the payroll..... Cabelas will lose its luster.
