Pros

You do get chance to learn new things in first few months of your tenure at REI

Cons

PMs do not care, how much ever you work, they always expect employee to work for more than 10 hrs a day.

Life here sucks... you cannot spend a single evening with your family, you get calls when on vacation or offline from communicator..

there are lot of senior people, who are in the company for 8+ years, they think employees are slaves.. keep putting pressure on employees, and keep them ALWAYS under stress..

Lot of blame games and politics, few people have developed out of office relationships with the seniors, they do not work at all and keep bitching about peers / fellow employees to the PMs / resource managers.

Generally people are hied for associate position and the company tries to keep them on low salary as many days as possible.

Timesheets are also a pain here, as full time employees have to justify every minute of their work like contractors. In order to get full salary at the end of the pay period, every employee has to justify each and every minute of their work hrs spent.

After all this hard work also, do not expect recognition unless you have out of office friendship with managers.

Do not expect bonus, if you get an award in the same year. According to REI management
Performance excellence monetary award / referral money / Yearly bonus are all the some, all the employees get only one of the above in an year.

Advice to Management

change the environment of slavery and let people grow. all managers needs to improve.
Culture should change

    Pros

    REI is a great place for people with entry/mid level experience where you get to learn a lot about the standard industry business practices. Working on variety of projects allow you to become flexible and diverse.

    Cons

    Majority of the Project Managers/Portfolio Managers are horrible to work with. Most don't have respect for their team members and treat them as their "own" employees. A lot of internal politics is in place. Also, the PTO is very low with no sick leave or paid FMLA leave. Work hours are long, mostly 40+ hours every week. Managers take their team members for granted and think they are available to work late nights and on weekends. The owners also have a very Indian mind set for operating a company in the US.

    Advice to Management

    Train yourself and your managers better to treat their team members with respect and dignity. Revise your benefit package. If your attitude towards long working hours don't change, you will loose a lot of good workers.
