I have been working at Orvis Company full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Some of the people I worked with were great, the building is in a great setting.

Cons

Despite social media efforts to make consumers think Orvis is a great place to work, it is one of the most backward-thinking companies I have worked for. Orvis does not embrace change, leadership is unqualified to lead into the digital age, there is a culture of micromanagement (starting with CEO), it's a very political landscape, only a few people who get along well with the owners really thrive there, the culture covers up inappropriate senior-level behavior, there are zero innovative minds leading any type of change, extremely poor employee morale, women are treated inferior to men, with the exception of the few women who are in relationships with male decision makers. Also, at the Sunderland HQ there is zero transparency and the company tries to hide the fact that they are not meeting plans.

Advice to Management

Current management should retire.
