    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...

    I have been working at Callaway Golf full-time for less than a year

    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.

    Cons

    If you have kids or love one that are sick, you need to use your pay time off since employer really discourage people working from remote.

        I worked at Callaway Golf full-time for 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...

        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...
