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

    Pros

    Mission and value driven
    Casual workplace environment
    Flexible schedule
    On site child care - good for families
    Office Locations
    Product discount

    Cons

    Lower pay when compared to competition and hard to get raises.
    Nepotism is pretty bad.
    Flexible schedule is taken advantage of by many in a negative way.
    More transparent to customers about product than to employees about the business

    Advice to Management

    Invest in resources to support company system and project initiatives. Lack of support causes frustration and distrust in management from those actually effected.

    Pros

    Work from home capabilities when it suits mgmt.

    Cons

    They have all gone crazy since the election. They are more concerned with activism then running a business. C-Level execs have been promoted to beyond their capabilities. Take a hard look at leadership and clean house at the VP and C Level. Unfair standards across depts.

    Upper management has good morals and ideals sound good on paper

    Cons

    Management has little to no follow through. HR department will say one thing and will do another.

    Advice to Management

    Management should learn about real project development and think about the overall big picture- not so much about short term savings costs etc
