    I worked at Callaway Golf full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    In the day, was a great employee-centric company. Placed high value and appreciation on employees that made the company great

    Cons

    Moved production to Mexico and cost a lot of jobs in Carlsbad. All in the name of shareholder profit

    Advice to Management

    Bring jobs back to Carlsbad and rebuild the company into the great employer it once was

    I worked at Callaway Golf full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    decent benefits, nice perks if you golf, work/life balance can be good at times depending on your department

    Cons

    industry is not a growth industry, Little room for career advancement, offshoring jobs in certain departments to cut costs, employees are not encouraged to speak up about issues

    Advice to Management

    Employees are your biggest asset, treat them well and you will improve as a company. The "Tribal knowledge" your employees have of the company and the industry is more important than you realize.

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

    Pros

    Amount of vacation time is above industry standards. Great employees.

    Cons

    Senior management focus is entirely on reducing costs. Always looking at ways to reduce spend by moving production to Mexico and moving operating and support staff from the US to offshore. No career path for employees. TaylorMade was never seen as a great place to work and they have been struggling for years now. Callaway has brought in a lot of TaylorMade employees and it has been detrimental to the overall company culture.

    Advice to Management

    To get great results, treat your employees with respect and show that you value them. This will go a long way and will encourage employees to work harder.

    I have been working at Callaway Golf full-time

    Pros

    Plenty of parking
    Paychecks don't bounce

    Cons

    It's simply a very unpleasant place to work in so many ways. I look forward to the wonderful day I get to turn in my resignation. Until then, I stay for the paycheck.

    Every single day I have to listen to management spew vulgarities, I have to have "conservative" values shoved down my throat. I have to watch employees be harassed by other employees and even management as well. It's nauseating. If you try to stand up against the bullies then there is a price to pay. The people that do the harassing are protected for some reason and HR doesn't want to get involved. Overall I find it to be a very hostile environment.

    Advice to Management

    I would give advice if I felt it would make a difference. It won't so I won't waste anymore of my time.

    Pros

    Good working environment. Surrounded by talented people at work. If you are a golf lover, this is the place to be. Company pays for practice at the driving range for multiple golf course near the office.
