    I worked at Patagonia full-time

    Pros

    Worked with amazing people that seemed to hold very similar beliefs about environmentalism and getting outside. Fun atmosphere and nobody took themselves too seriously, even including store managers and supervisors.

    Cons

    Holiday retail will never be fun at any store, though the "customer is always right" mentality does mean you really have to be on your toes during holiday seasons.

      I have been working at Patagonia full-time for more than 5 years

      Pros

      Patagonia offers great benefits. Free healthcare, cheap vision and dental and a very generous 401K match. We get 2 paid field days every year and fair amount of vacation time every paycheck.

      Cons

      Growing pains and poor management. Some departments need better organization and leaders to help propel the company and support its employees. The company is also living in the past and thinks everyone needs to have a desk in an office instead of working remotely.

      Advice to Management

      Trust your employees and recognize when people are giving their all. Stop playing favorites. Look into more remote jobs. Not all jobs need to be in Ventura.

      Pros

      Great company culture - they give you time off to support community causes.

      Cons

      It's retail - but probably the best retail organization out there.

      Pros

      The management was amazing and really cared for the employees. Patagonia takes their mission statement seriously as well as the well-being of their employees.

      Cons

      None. Patagonia is a great place and the turnover for sales associates is pretty quick, but I have enjoyed everyone I have been able to work with
