Approves of CEO

I have been working at Callaway Golf full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

1 - Great team to work with, a lot of support and very open to answer just about any question.
2 - IT open door policy.
3 - You are challenged by doing projects (if you get them).
4 - Very flexible work environment.

Cons

1 - Very little or no opportunities for advancement.
2 - Very little or no raises since 2008. But it has been tough times for the company.
3 - There have been layoffs and management has tried to saved the managers (that did nothing) and throw some of the employees under the bus.
4 - Management gets benefits (iphones/ipads) even though the company is loosing money.

Advice to Management

1 - Do not buy stuff we do not really need. I know that Apple products are cool, but nothing says I do not care like spending a lot of money for such products while we are loosing money. If you want to promote change, show that you are diligent with your expenses.

    I have been working at Callaway Golf full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    People you work with, compensation, great perks (if you enjoy golf)

    Cons

    Limited advancement opportunities, poor middle management, frustrating lack of communication, not a creative environment, poor decisions continue to hurt this company, poor performance quarter after quarter

    Advice to Management

    Hire true project managers to manage large scale projects. Stop ridiculous spending when the company is in a 'turn-around' phase. Losing good people in favor of almost comical decisions.

    I worked at Callaway Golf full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great people. Hopefully the recent changes to senior management at the company will make it a more progressive place to work. Benefits were good, but declining.

    Cons

    Challenging to work in a declining industry such as golf. Non-traditional work situations rarely taken into consideration (telecommuting, job sharing, alternate work hours). There were layoffs so regularly for the last 5 years that many of the people that were great at there jobs and role models have left the company or were laid off because they were highly compensated.
