    I have been working at Backcountry.com full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    HQ in Park City. Gear discounts.

    Cons

    Wow..where to begin. Its a real cut throat place with inept management. Turnover is over 60% for a reason. Top management does nothing but walk around, threaten jobs and blame others for their own shortcomings. The CEO does head count to make sure employees are in seats at 5:30 pm. Innovation is frowned upon..everything is bottom line drudgery. Many at the director level or higher would not cut it at a real company....only way to advance is to be a part of the "in crowd". Nearly all good employees leave after 1-2 yrs without fail. (unless you are the "in crowd"- you know who I am talking about). Word of advice - gear discounts are not worth it. Look somewhere else for employment. You will THANK me for it.

    Advice to Management

    Your days are numbered. Liberty will clean house one of these days. Good luck.

    Pros

    I love the sense of community here at Backcountry, employees are very friendly helpful to a new hire. There's instant reception and acceptance, invites to go outdoors together and a welcome family vibe.

    Cons

    Haven't found a single Con, I'm loving every day here.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. Continue to invest in your people and it will pay dividends.
