Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I worked at SwimOutlet.com full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Energetic employees, healthy culture (free catered lunches, snacks provided during the day) Free yoga and on site gym, BBQ;s, ice cream socials etc. Excellent "team" environment. Open seating, easy to branch out of your cube or office.

Cons

CEO is very detached (at least he was 2010-2011), never met him the entire time I worked there and I had a managerial level position.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at SwimOutlet.com full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Casual, relaxed dress code
    Young employees
    Good place to get experience but that's about it

    Cons

    It feels like high school all over again if you know what I mean
    Inexperienced managers with little to no experience in the industry
    Favortism/nepotism
    Absolutely no room for upward mobility or growth
    Benefits are minimal
    "Raises" after three month reviews are a joke

    Advice to Management

    Foster a work environment that rewards employees for good work. Don't feel threatened by good managers with innovative ideas and then fire them. Good employees don't leave companies, they leave managers. Listen to what your employees have to say to improve the overall company.
