    Pros

    Nice comfortable atmosphere, decent perks (baseball tickets), friendly employees, access to loads of samples.

    Cons

    No chances to move up or anywhere unless you're starting in customer service. Unkept promises. Lots of under-qualified people in positions they don't belong. The comfortable atmosphere often leads to complacency allowing ones skill set to become dull.

    I worked at Rawlings full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Casual atmosphere. Co-workers are great to work with and the products speak for themselves. If you are able to get them, great company seats to the Cardinals games.

    Cons

    Management team is not "on the same page." Lack of genuine decision making by senior leadership. Too many decisions are based on gut feel.

    Advice to Management

    Determine your 5 year business plan based on market analysis and objective data. Create your plan. Staff your plan and then manage to the plan. Grad school business 101 discipline would do wonders for the organization.

    Pros

    The company is still growing

    Cons

    Too much micromanagement going on. Manager styles are tyrannical and bullying. Very negative debauch environment to be in. I wouldn't recommend this place to ANYONE.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people with respect and you will receive it in return

    I worked at Rawlings full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Brand
    Sporting Goods
    T shirts/shorts on Friday
    Discounts on other Jarden brands

    Cons

    Want upward mobility that pays and solid experience? Go elsewhere. For a hundred year old company the practices are ancient and so is management style. Employee morale is non existent.

    I worked at Rawlings full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There are so many Pros to working at Rawlings but mainly it comes down to the people. The people, specifically my coworkers, make the difference and make coming to work a joy. Yes, there were difficult times and challenges, as with all jobs...I mean this isn't all puppy dogs and rainbows but I found a ton of support from the people who helped make my job a lot easier. Working in Customer Service is tough, it's even tougher with bad coworkers. I got to talk about the great game of baseball on a daily basis AND got paid to do it. Dental benefits are so so. Life Insurance for you, spouse and child are reasonable. I was paid well for customer support so the pay was nice for what I do. Since Rawlings is owned by Jarden you get discounts on the 100+ different brands that Jarden owns.

    Cons

    HEALTH INSURANCE BENEFITS...at least if you're sick or you have chronically sick family members. The plans don't have a single reasonably inexpensive option. All are high deductible plans with no defined co-pays, just percentage discounts. This is THE ONLY reason I left.

    Advice to Management

    Get a better health insurance plan...you are owned by a Mega-Conglomerate (Jarden). You should be able to use your size as leverage to get a better plan for your employees.

    Pros

    Fun company to work for overall with primo products and well known name brand.

    Cons

    Accounting is the last department to get the necessary help. It is all about the sales end. Too much turnover in accounting as well.


  10. "Brand/Marketing"

    Cons

    Advice to Management

    Be able to take constructive criticism and be willing to change
