    I have been working at Callaway Golf full-time

    Pros

    Work-life balance. Ability to grow and contribute. Healthy work environment. Good year end bonuses.

    Cons

    Sports industry. No government contracts/inelastic commodities, so the industry doesn’t always pay top dollar. It uses other incentives to make up for lack of base pay.

    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.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Callaway Golf full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Co-workers always willing to help. It was a nice working environment. Meeting the golf pros. Learning new skills and techniques.

    Cons

    Direction of company Pressure to continue tackling more and more tasks New job duties when others are released so never being able to give 100% unless other tasks falter

    Advice to Management

    Don't burn out the great people you have working there. New blood is not always best. Care for those that are there.

    Cons

    Benefits have dropped dramatically, regular layoffs for the last 3 years, a ton of cost cutting measures, morale is horrible.

    I have been working at Callaway Golf full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    1 - Great team to work with, a lot of support and very open to answer just about any question. 2 - IT open door policy. 3 - You are challenged by doing projects (if you get them). 4 - Very flexible work environment.

    Cons

    1 - Very little or no opportunities for advancement. 2 - Very little or no raises since 2008. But it has been tough times for the company. 3 - There have been layoffs and management has tried to saved the managers (that did nothing) and throw some of the employees under the bus. 4 - Management gets benefits (iphones/ipads) even though the company is loosing money.

    Advice to Management

    1 - Do not buy stuff we do not really need. I know that Apple products are cool, but nothing says I do not care like spending a lot of money for such products while we are loosing money. If you want to promote change, show that you are diligent with your expenses.
