Pros

Great people - REI has an active, engaged workforce. Pleasant culture - the need to find balance between working hard and having fun is not only acknowledged but encouraged.

Cons

Some managers were reluctant to ask employees to be accountable - but I think that happens in any organization and is thankfully it is rare at REI.

Advice to Management

Stay focused on high levels of job satisfaction. Remain committed to quality product that everyone in the organization can be proud of. Continue to give back by supporting great causes.

    Cons

    At times I feel that the fact I was never a boyscout / girlscout counts against me in the social structure of the store.

    Advice to Management

    Punishments and rewards should be more clearly defined.
    Training should be more extensive in all aspects.
