    Pros

    Prod Deals, flex Time, Sabitical after 15 years, hoping of course that they don't lay you off in your 14th

    Cons

    I didn't find management to be honest, Differing opinions are not tolerate well. I asked a VP "who is REI" his response listed everthing including the managment but not the rank and file. We eere replaceable

    Every year benefits went down, yet they continue to rank in top 100 companies. This was supposed to based on feedback from employees, I never knew anyone that was asked???

    Political correctness taken to extremes.

    Advice to Management

    Admit that REI is just about the dollars and be honest.
