    I have been working at Nautilus full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Manager is truly caring, smart, and wants their employees to grow. I have opportunities to move up in the Company. Great work/life balance. People listen to each other and work together.

    Cons

    Compensation is on the low end. Pay increase format needs improvement. Great performers are not always paid what they should be.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good direction and inform employees of what the plans are in the future.

    Pros

    Great company to work for. Not a lot of pressure and my department allows challenging the process and making changes as necessary. Company seems to hire good people for growing needs.

    Cons

    Maybe in other departments.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Nautilus full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Talented and hard working team
    -Couldn't have asked for a better and more flexible boss
    -Friendly and enthusiastic team members across all departments
    -Clear goal setting
    -Relatively good work/life balance

    Cons

    -Serious challenges in compensation increases for the strongest performers in the company
    -Can sometimes feel like a "boy's club" in certain departments, with some folks unexpectedly receiving promotions, while others who should be promoted are not
    -Limited brand vision

    Advice to Management

    Salary and compensation approach is incredibly outdated. Take a hard look at who your strongest performers are and who can take the company to its next evolution. Reward those people. Ensure you're making them happy. Don't keep people on just because they're been there for years. If they're not performing the way they should, make the appropriate changes. And give people from other departments more chances to go outside of their role. You'd be surprised at how talented some folks are.

    Pros

    Fantastic “Family atmosphere” everyone wants you to succeed and are always willing to lend a hand. There are SOOOO many team events!! They love to keep your family and everyone involved.

    Cons

    Great leadership is in place!! However that is tough when you are ready to take the next step. BUT!! as the company grows more opportunities to grow is nice to see

    Advice to Management

    Bruce is the man!! hands down the best CEO in the business!! Keep on working for your team members we see it and appreciate it!!

    I have been working at Nautilus full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Bruce is an outstanding CEO he really is! But Bruce doesn't necessarily interact with us day-to-day so when we do see him, it's outstanding. Quality product, great innovation and I love my team.

    Cons

    Unless you're part of "the club", getting promoted just doesn't appear to be something that's doable. I'm rewarded for my performance, but at the same time I know that I won't necessarily be able to move upward even though I'm qualified.

    Advice to Management

    Sales and customer service management - try doing something difrerent other then the same thing over and over. The supervisors and managers are changing all the time. Only a few have been around for over a year. the same people get promoted and senior managers and directors don't work with us to help us grow into a leadership role.

    I have been working at Nautilus full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Nautilus is one of, if the not the best, employer I have had in my 30 years of being in the workforce! The company culture is second to none. Collaboration and empowering team members is absolutely encouraged. Work life balance is also encouraged, and I cannot say that for most companies. Having fun and taking care of the customer is a part of each and every day. At Nautilus, we take care of the customer and coach our team members on a regular basis. We also encourage our team members to make suggestions for improvements!

    We also just celebrated Customer Service Appreciation Week last week and ensured our team felt how much our team is appreciated for the hard work they put in each day. Treats and games everyday for a week- and not during lunch or after hours, but while the team is being paid!

    There are so many things that Nautilus is doing right! I know I have made the right decision joining this company!

    Cons

    Honestly, I cannot think of one!

    Advice to Management

    Keep taking great care of the customer and the employees of the company as you are and you will continue to attract and retain good talent!

    Pros

    None. You will learn nothing. The tools available are terrible and management doesn't care.

    Cons

    Your career will stall due to the terrible IT department and management.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being self absorbed idiots. Oh wait you cant because you think you know everything despite sucking at IT.
