    I worked at Callaway Golf full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great company for golfers Very good PTO Free snacks Free stationary items Employee discount for golf products Good health insurance and 401K

    Cons

    Worst HR practices. HR is not transparent at all and hire you always at lower end of pay range. No work remote policy in IT Doesn’t hire more people even after acquiring more and more companies; you are required to do job of 2-3 people No sophisticated training for IT Company culture is to not promote people and save money. So many people work for many years together (20+ years) and don’t move anywhere else.

    Advice to Management

    To IT leadership: Rather than hiring PMO’s and more Senior directors who do the same job of Managers, value and recognize efforts of developers who are the worker bees that do all the work for you. Promote people where there is due. Denying promotion does not equate to saving money for the company. Stop behaving like a small scale company.

    I have been working at Callaway Golf full-time

    Pros

    Work-life balance. Ability to grow and contribute. Healthy work environment. Good year end bonuses.

    Cons

    Sports industry. No government contracts/inelastic commodities, so the industry doesn’t always pay top dollar. It uses other incentives to make up for lack of base pay.
