    Pros

    The people were great to work with and the benefits were outstanding. The work is something to be proud of.

    Cons

    Trying to change career fields was difficult; this is what lead to me leaving. Even as an internal employee, I was unable make it past the corporate bureaucracy when it came to applying for a new position.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing - taking care of people is always the highest priority.

    Pros

    Solid product portfolio, reputable brand within the marine industry. A leader with strong reputation with field team and the consumer.

    Cons

    Good ol' boy network! If you're not part of it, or a female, you're screwed! It's normal to have managers belittle their employees and not be held accountable for doing it.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house with Director level and higher. Too many good ol boys that will not listen to new employees or their ideas.
