I have been working at W.L. Gore full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

For professional people, lots of freedom in what we do and what projects we decide to accept. Working hours are flexible, some facilities are old and outdated. Not a bad place to work.

Cons

Lack of rigid leadership, which is a cornerstone of the company, can be difficult for some people, and some never really catch on to life at Gore.

Advice to Management

Maybe you have lost touch with the associates, this was something Bill Gore was proud of and stressed as part of the culture. The leaders need to get reconnected.

    I worked at W.L. Gore as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Provided housing, nice people to work with.

    Cons

    Don't expect a full time offer. Their philosophy of doing a "good job" over the summer and get an offer later is wrong.

    Pros

    Everyone is helpful and friendly. Give interns real projects to work on. Lots of things like programs for the interns to do throughout the summer.

    None unless you need hierarchical organization in your life.
