    I have been working at Cutter & Buck full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great team environment. I have been here over 10 years and with the exception of the 2009 recession it seems to get better every year. Good benefits with over 4 weeks paid time off plus most holidays.

    Cons

    Hourly pay isn't the best but there is an incentive and we often earn $1.50+ more.

    Advice to Management

    Love that the CEO comes to the DC quarterly to discuss the company.

    Pros

    I've been at C&B for over ten years, and I consider myself lucky to work with fantastic teams and supportive management. Cutter & Buck promotes the growth of its employees professionally and personally in a positive, nurturing environment, where everyone matters. We work hard, and we have fun!

    Cons

    Sometimes the view of Elliott Bay is distracting.

    I worked at Cutter & Buck full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Company paid ORCA pass was a plus. Not a lot of required OT.

    Cons

    Constant internal roadblocks and separation of departments. Lack of promotion and raise opportunities. Lost many talented and long-time employees due to poor pay, benefits, and growth potential. Downward spiral moral. Lack of trust within the company. Disconnect with parent company (New Wave Group). Felt like a sinking ship.

    Advice to Management

    Stop acting like you can compete with the big boys like Nike. That isn't your niche. Focus on what you can do and be excellent at that. Treat your employees like they matter, not just another body at a desk.

    I worked at Cutter & Buck full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There is good health coverage, they cover your ORCA card. The Corporate HQ is in a beautiful location. I found there was a lot of flexibility for the hourly employees to adjust their schedule if necessary, making it easier to leave early or come in earlier or later.

    Cons

    There is no cohesiveness between teams and no attempt to change that. No one communicates ideas clearly between departments and any requested feedback from Customer Service regarding the website, the catalogs or decoration is completely ignored, despite the constant complaints and feedback received from customers. The systems are outdated and while management pushes CS to strive to be better than (or even comparable to) our competition, they are unwilling to provide the tools necessary to truly make that happen and instead tell CS that they just need to work harder. A frustrating cycle that leaves the morale in CS very low.
    Additionally there is little internal communication about opportunities to move up, so long time employees often don't get the chance to advance their careers.

    Advice to Management

    Make a commitment to do what you say you will. If you are going to update the systems, update them. If you want to improve customer service, and the customer experience then actually take the necessary steps to allow your employees to make that happen.

    Great company and Team to work with. Understanding of work/life balance. Great setting and tools need to complete job are readily available. A great company to work for

    Cons

    advancement opportunities are a bit limited, but really this is not a fault of the company but a really a limit of what is needed by the company

    Keep up what you are doing, just remember when making promises to employees within a timeline to stay within that timeline if possible

    I have been working at Cutter & Buck full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I have worked for CB for about 1.5 years and have had a rewarding experience. I am proud to tell people where I work. The level of caring and commitment to the employees is above and beyond. There have been a lot of changes in the last year most of which have been positive and well received. The new CEO Joel Freet has brought fresh energy, perspective and growth. Excellent benefits and work environment. I look forward to continuing my career at Cutter & Buck.

    Cons

    My commute... I live quite a distance away and the ORCA card which CB provides free of charge to each employee does not benefit my personal situation. The wage scale has been a bit stagnant but that is changing.

    Advice to Management

    Continue viewing your employees has your most valuable asset.
