    I worked at Callaway Golf full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The employees are lovely, solid hard working people, that are sharp and collaborative.
    Being part of a legacy that Ely built is cause for genuine affection by tenured employees.
    The discount on some of the finest golf equipment in the world is solid.
    The cafe' is a great onsite perk.
    Parking is relatively plentiful (and covered).

    Cons

    There is a lack of support from senior level management, Human Resources will always side with management, employee concerns are ultimately swept aside.
    Mediocrity is acceptable, resulting in poorly qualified people in certain management positions, unfit to manage and/or lead the staff for whom they are responsible.
    Growth opportunities are rare within the service organizations; what you get hired in as will most likely be where you'll remain.
    Callaway will never be a $1Bn company (again); capital budgets are always a struggle and a cat fight.
    Many former Taylor Made employees have been brought over to Callaway, Ely is rolling over in his grave... there's a boys club mentality there.
    Attrition is a business practice resulting in many many over-worked employees.
    Long ago, corporate loyalty was rewarded... the key word being long ago.
    Bonuses are political, as can be merit increases; hold your tongue.

    Advice to Management

    "Advice to Management" will fall on deaf ears. The company that Ely built was on par with the best of the best, it is merely a shell of its former self. The best thing that could happen to Callaway would be acquisition by another company even if by hostile means if nothing else to blow out senior management, and the board. All the company really needs is its employees; however tip of the hat to Chip who is doing a respectable job in his own right.

    Pros

    Good company to work for. Almost no drama and everyone is not afraid to help out. My experience was that almost everyone that was working there knew their job.

    Cons

    Provide a challenge for some of your staff. Some are just sitting there doing the same thing year over year.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up. You have turned it around!

    Pros

    Loved working at Callaway. They make the best products and have awesome employees.

    Cons

    I did not receive any support from HR or Chip when my boss retired and the new CFO arrived and laid me off because we weren't "a good fit". After 19 years I would have thought that they could have offered me something in another department.

    Cons

    No oppurtunity for advancment. They used to, but once the company starting moving more and more out of the country. They did not offer this no longer.

    Advice to Management

    Looking to grow with your Company, just like I did with Callaway. I go above and beyond for my job. I was once asked to go train in another State. They asked on a friday and I left the next day.
