    Benefits, onsite subsidized childcare, work/life balance, volunteer during working hours, fly in private plane, brand cache, ESOP, free t-shirts, bottomless coffee.

    Pros

    Amazing co-workers, incredible work life balance, a fun place to work, cool brands, good benefits, a company that is truly living its values and trying to do good in the world.

    Cons

    There's a large amount of turnover right now, including senior management, which is creating low morale and uncertainty. Many talented people feel bored and under utilized, making it difficult for them to grow professionally and have an impact on the organization. Decisions are very top down, and teams or even directors are not empowered to make decisions. Decisions often seem...

    I have been working at Clif Bar full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    I love working at Clif Bar! After years spent in Corporate America it is so refreshing to be here. Is it perfect, no, but it's real. Great people, low bureaucracy, focus on giving back and doing the right thing. You feel proud to work here. And tons of fun events through the year to connect you to the bigger company. Great perks that are embedded in the culture all called out below.

    Cons

    As the company grows, senior leadership needs to find a way to spread out decision making and pull up. Growth opportunities can be challenging given its a smallish company.

    Advice to Management

    Stay true to what makes us special but trust those below you to do the right thing.
