      Pros

      Great people, fun environment, supportive of your career and goals

      Cons

      None that I can think of. Hefty interview process if you aren't into that, but ensures they are hiring the right people and gives you a deep understanding of the culture

      Pros

      Radio Flyer provides employees a great sense of responsibility. This allows people to thrive and grow quickly. Given the lean team, Engineers get to learn many different aspects of the product development cycle and the business as a whole. Rather than learning one specific technical skills, you get to touch all different parts of the development cycle (quality, testing, design, tooling, etc). Each member of the team has a direct impact on the business and people are rewarded for that.

      Cons

      During peak parts of the year the workload can be a bit heavy.

      Pros

      I've worked at Radio Flyer for five years now I started off as an intern and was hired on full-time after graduation. The culture here is amazing from the warm memories committee, which celebrates life events (weddings and babies) at company meetings, to the two paid volunteer days off where you get to spend the day volunteering in the community with fellow flyers (co-workers)! Radio Flyer also just remodeled their offices with all brand new furniture including sit to stand desks for everyone! Some of the other great things around the office include: -Subsidized Whole Foods Fridge (Salads, Sandwiches, Breakfast Tacos etc.) -Option to participate in catered lunch every Tuesday -Backyard area to eat lunch/work

      Cons

      The location is in far west Chicago which makes the commute long.
