I have been working at Brooks Sports full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

- RUN HAPPY vibe permeates most everything the company does
- Business on a great trajectory, lot of growth potential
- Management genuinely cares about employees
- Everyday work life is fun - with great colleagues, frequent social gatherings, etc.
- New office location is great, future headquarters building will be even better
- Reasonable work hours
- Ample (high-quality) career training opportunities
- Great discounts on gear, lots of free product and race giveaways
- Visionary CEO and product leadership is inspiring to watch and learn from

Cons

- Promotion track can be slow (unless you start at the bottom, where it is quite good)
- Vacation policy a bit stingy, overall benefits aren't fantastic.
- I could probably come up with more, but really splitting hairs...

Advice to Management

- Don't spread the company too thin

    Pros

    My first day was amazing. The company is just the right size for me. Everyone seems to know each other and the atmosphere is really best described as "happy." People say hello to each other, stop in the halls to discuss work and go out for lunch runs. Of course, it is just day one. But, I will keep you posted!

    Cons

    Too early to tell you.
