    I have been working at Clif Bar full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Clif Bar offers an incredible culture that really values employees, the community, the product, and the planet. It is authentic and exemplifies how a corporation can really care while also being profitable. As an ESOP company, employees share in that success.

    Cons

    Slow to innovate or change and often reluctant to take on new opportunities in a fully committed way. Limited career mobility.

    Advice to Management

    Keep holding true to the values-based foundation.

    I have been working at Clif Bar for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Support the community by doing a lot of volunteer work.

    Cons

    The shift are 12hrs and everyone goes home tired. HR does not support supervisor and will not fully investigate situations in full. The Aspirations and Ingredients that Clif Bar are known for are abused by people in the front office. There are a lot of people who do not speak English and get fired because they can't defend themselves. The turnover is very high

    Advice to Management

    Lead by example and follow the same rules you are enforcing. Headquarters needs to come to Indy to figure put why there is so much turnover and how the company is really being ran

      Pros

      There are lots of great things about the company ...

      Cons

      ...unfortunately, they are starting to be overshadowed by the legacy leadership and stale review process.

      Advice to Management

      Develop a true 365 review process and allow employees to review their managers. Keeping ineffective leaders in their positions, without proper oversight, is starting to have serious impact on morale across all departments.

      I worked at Clif Bar full-time

      Pros

      Great benefits and incentives. On-site gym and exercise classes. Outdoor industry discounts. Casual attire.

      Cons

      Under the 'it's cool to work at Clif' is an underlying intensity akin to aggressive publicly traded corporations. Work life balance is not as it appears.
