    I worked at E-Z-GO full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay, that’s about it.

    Cons

    If you are a person of color, don’t even bother working here. This place is full of racist individuals that use the “Good Ol’ Boy” system. The only way you will move up is if you are a buddy, family, or if you’re sleeping with the high ups. There is no onboarding or formal training which is crazy. Management does not want to implement processes that actually work. Everyone is constantly chasing their tail because of the lack of CLEAR direction and support from supervisors and managers. Most of the people there sit on their behinds everyday and do nothing while they find someone else to blame. This is the worst company I’ve worked for in my life! If you are driven and motivated to make change, keep looking. If you want to be overworked and depressed, this is the company for you.

    Advice to Management

    Retire.

    I have been working at E-Z-GO full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There used to be, this past year there were none.

    Cons

    Hyper micromanagement; senior leadership blames the effects of their decisions on others. Culture is a combination of high school drama, corporate backstabbing, and little town familiarity.

    Advice to Management

    Make up your mind and stick to it. Understand that randomly selecting ideas and implementing them and then changing them soon after doesn't work.

    I have been working at E-Z-GO full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The pay and benefits are good. Cost of living in Augusta is solid. You get to ride around on golf carts.

    Cons

    Chaotic. The facilities are old and run-down. Constantly questioning whether you’ll have a job or not. Management provides no support and are not willing to help. People will stab you in the back for their own wrongdoings if they are to blame for something. When you ask for help or need an answer to something, expect either a rude response or no response... I would seriously advise people who look for stability and peace of mind in an employer to look elsewhere because this truly is not the place to find that.

    Advice to Management

    Provide employees with direction, feedback, and support so they aren’t always questioning themselves.

    I worked at E-Z-GO full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, perks, company vehicle, travel, great CRM tool for managing territory/market share, if you hit your numbers you can make descent money

    Cons

    Although they are part of a fairly respected company (Textron) they are loosing market share left and right to Club Car and Yamaha despite having a fairly solid product set in the golf business which is their bread and butter. If you have a great year in sales, expect your following year quota to be 100% unattainable as they manage their business 100% by spreadsheet and you are stack ranked against everyone else in the country despite how long the golf season is and the number of accounts in your territory. The compensation package is designed for you to hit one year then miss badly the next year.

    Advice to Management

    Realize its cheaper to retain a customer, than to go out and get another customer from a competitor. They do not seem to understand loyalty from a customer and would rather a customer walk to another vendor than to treat long term customers like they should be.
