    I have been working at Maui Jim full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    As a company, Maui Jim does a fantastic job of supporting their employees and allowing them to grow within their positions and into new positions. I completed two sales and marketing internships after my sophomore and junior years of college. They allowed me to continue working a few hours a week from school as well, which really helped me enhance my organizational skills. The atmosphere is cohesive to the growth... and support of our product and the lifestyle that it is marketed to advocate.

    Cons

    As my job is 90% travel, that lifestyle can be stressful at times. However, managing a hectic schedule is something that I feel I can do because of my experience within the company. While it can be intense, it is also my favorite aspect of my position.

    Advice to Management

    Please continue to support your employees, recognize their successes, and provide constructive criticism.

    I have been working at Maui Jim full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    This job offers a great way to travel around the US. You're 100% travel and expected to work 100% of your time. You also receive an awesome discount at Maui Jim and all the perks Maui Jim has to offer

    Cons

    Not compensated fairly with days off when you're home as you mainly travel during the weekends. Management does not seem to trust employees. You will have absolutely NO work life balance

    I worked at Maui Jim full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Casual Work Wear Fun Company Parties Onsite Gym Good Benefits

    Cons

    Terrible Management Highly Political Demotivating Limited Success and Earning Potential Forced Company Mantra

    Advice to Management

    Throwing fun company parties, having a casual work attire, and letting employees drink a beer at their desk is only throwing money at problems. These benefits are a quick shot of addrenaline for employees, but after the party is over, they return to the same problems with their jobs they have been expressing for years. Focus on solving those problems, don't just sweep them under the rug. Millennials in particular... can see past these band-aids. Maui Jim is loosing its reputation as a good employer.
