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

    Pros

    Growing company with plenty of work and job security. While there, I took part in many of the free training programs they had offered. Employees are encouraged to learn as much as possible. We had safety meetings each week and I found them very useful. The COO and Warehouse Managers are very friendly and professional, always offering a smile and great advice.

    Cons

    Being a growing company, some of the transitional periods were stressful. Communication between employees and managers

    Advice to Management

    Continue to work with employees during transitional periods. Asking advice and holding meeting to discuss ideas and opinions was a great way to get the expressions of the labor employees. Perhaps an anonymous suggestion form in meetings might take the pressure off the meetings as it seemed only a few would speak during the meeting but many had strong opinions outside.

    I worked at Nite Ize full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Nice peers, on site gym (at one location)

    Cons

    Inexperienced executives, zero autonomy, no trust of capable employees, inefficient, very low productivity, exectives refusal to further education, close minded, poor work life balance, passive aggressive management.

    Advice to Management

    First, hire education, qualified management. Next, CEO needs to be more hands off and delegate where possible. Research productivity tools and bring workplace into 21st century.

    I worked at Nite Ize full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pleasant social events, beautiful view of the mountains from within Boulder, Colorado.

    Cons

    Frustrating work environment, no ownership of management failures, no loyalty to dedicated employees.

    Advice to Management

    Fire Alex Martell and Francine Santos to make way for actual improvement. Raise expectations for individuals filling out paperwork when handwritten information is vital, switch to scanning implementation for receiving and picking.

    I have been working at Nite Ize full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Growing company (in spite of the economic downturn, great coworkers, interesting work, regular raises. Opportunity for advancement, as the company is still expanding & growing (several have found a different niche here than when they started, and most love it!).

    Cons

    The pay rate didn't start out as high as I would have liked, but the raises have been pretty regular & well. Sometimes it gets a bit hectic here (& sometimes boring!), but I like it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. Happy employee here :-).

    Pros

    Great company, everyone cares and is ready and willing to help. The owner is brilliant, extremely nice and easy to talk to, he walks around to check on everyone. Growing company, so there are a ton of opportunities. Your voice is heard. Fast moving environment.

    Cons

    Growing pains, company has some growing pains they are working out. But you gets used to it and partially appreciate it.

    Advice to Management

    A lot of good has come from HR but I believe there is still room to grow. Ie. better maternity leave
