    I have been working at Patagonia part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Fantastic company in the outdoor industry. Leaders in many areas of how to do business. Currently doing outstanding work with social, environmental causes.

    Cons

    retail employees are the bottom feeders, not nearly enough recognition and or vertical advancement within the company

    Advice to Management

    pay closer attention to retail employees. There are many extremely qualified, and dedicated employees who would be excellent matches for corporate positions if they were given a chance to advance. Implement an active recruitment program that consistently looks and recognizes these employees who may not have a voice to be heard.
