    I have been working at Gopher Sport full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Gopher Sport is a great place to work especially if you have a passion for fitness like myself. You are constantly striving to make people better with the equipment you work with. Gopher cares about their employees and it shows in the benefit and PTO package. We have fun and the people here are awesome!

    Cons

    Owatonna is not the ideal location for a 20 something, but it's SO close to Rochester and the cities it really doesn't even matter.

    Advice to Management

    Leaders could be a bit more involved in the daily life of employees. It seems like they are in their own little world most of the time.

    Pros

    Team members at Gopher Sport are wonderful and care about the customers and mission of the organization. Customers come first at Gopher Sport, it was a joy to serve them.

    Cons

    Too many performance metrics in some areas of the business and not enough in other areas. The departments are too siloed and do not collaborate well - conflicting goals and metrics.

    Advice to Management

    You hire great people especially at the leadership level. Let them lead and work together to determine a great path for the future.
