    Pros

    Challenging work and opportunities to directly impact the business and grow yourself.
    Great products that many people love.
    Great benefits for a medium sized business, especially the insurance coverage.
    Transparent leadership team, goals and expectations are clearly communicated across the company.
    Summer hours.

    Cons

    The commute isn't the easiest from the western suburbs. However, a flexible work schedule helps - I feel the company does a good job of promoting work/life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing in people and the company. Keep making smart decisions to grow the company in a steady manner with a lean and flexible workforce.

    I have been working at Radio Flyer full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I started as a temp and was then hired on full-time about 4 months later. The people are really the best part about working at Radio Flyer. The culture we have created is welcoming, creative, and motivating. Everyone knows you by name and always has a moment to talk through things with you. The training program really helped me find out the kind of person I want to be and how to be successful both in and out of work. I absolutely love being a part of this company.

    Cons

    If you live in the city and do not have a car, it may be a long bus ride to and from the office. However, there is typically someone else in the building who lives close enough to carpool.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to mentor and support each Flyer to make the company and ourselves better. We have had a great history, and will have an even better future if you continue with your amazing leadership and foresight.

    Pros

    Radio Flyer is family owned and has maintained that environment 97 years later. My coworkers are an extension of my family and I appreciate them for not only because they are high performers and fully engaged, but also because we have fun together. We give back to our community, are fairily compensated, and have many opportunities to celebrate successes in and outside the office. Some extras you wouldn't expect? You can buy extra vacation, take 2 days off/year to volunteer, and we have a locker room and showers onsite.

    Cons

    Expectations of everyone at Radio Flyer is very high. I wouldn't note this as a con, however, if you are not committed and results driven, this would not be an appropriate environment for you.

    Pros

    RF is a small place to work (around 60 employees) so it's a great place to get exposure to lots of different departments. It's a very flat organization so you are able to interface directly with EVP's and the CEO regularly. The schedules are flexible, with daily flex time and summer hours - on top of ample vacation, floating holidays, and even paid time off to volunteer (2 days per year). They offer profit sharing, 401k match, bonuses, and competitive salaries. When you perform well, the opportunity to get promoted is there. The CEO is very caring, and drives a very respectful culture. It's a young work force at Radio Flyer, and a very fun place to work.

    Cons

    Since it's a small company, there's not a ton of 'title' growth that goes on. You have the opportunity to do lots of training (RF really supports its employees' continuing education - both internally at "Wagon U" and externally through conferences and other classes) and get exposure to lots of business scenarios that you never would at a larger company. At the same time, there isn't a ton of turnover and the senior management team is well established.

    Advice to Management

    Keep setting aggressive growth goals, and hiring GREAT people!

    Pros

    Opportunities for career development/training. Collaborative and fun environment. Great co-workers and a high level of accountability, which makes working with others and achieving goals a breeze. Rich benefits are a plus and of course working for a company that makes beloved kids products makes it even better.

    Cons

    Location on the border of the city is not perfect, but OK while living in the city or suburbs. It's nice there's a free parking lot.

    Advice to Management

    Continue setting the vision that helps us be successful.
