    I worked at Rickenbacker (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great place to work if you like working with wood and building guitars.
    Great company perks like getting to go to the NAMM show every year. Get to meet some artist. The other people that work there are friendly and fun to be around. Paid time off in December and July.

    Cons

    The pay is fairly low and hard to live on. The owners and warehouse management (owner's son) are a little hard to work for at times. They do everything they can to not empower their employees.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees better and pay them what they are worth.

    Pros

    You get to handle beautiful quality instruments every day, and the one you had a hand in creating may end up in the hands of somebody famous.

    Cons

    Being a family-owned and run operation, it is REALLY important to go out of your way to get along with people.

    Advice to Management

    How's that waiting list coming along?
