    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I have been working at Riddell full-time

    Pros

    You get to be apart of the market leader in football helmets. The work you do makes a direct impact on the sport of football. The headquarters is a smaller organization but that leads to closer relationships which is a big plus.

    Cons

    It is frowned upon to work from home and they have shot down summer hours more than once

      I worked at Riddell full-time for more than 5 years

      Pros

      Working in the corporate office offered me many opportunities over the years. A noticeable improvement in moral building activities and friendly office culture occurred while there. Occasional business travel spiced up the routine. Straightforward expensing process for anything business related. Management looked out for you and gave valuable feedback and advice when necessary. Reasonable leniency with sick leave and...

      Cons

      Older workforce. Distance from downtown Chicago. Office culture could have been more fun but mostly due to older workforce. Often worked unreasonable hours due to poor planning (this improved over the years though). Outside corporate office, factory and sales team members seemed to have a bit of resentment towards the main office members. Tension due to presumed inequality of facility perks and upward mobility. Things...

This improved near the end of me working there though. Management did make a clear effort to be accessible to employee but there was still tension. This improved just prior to me leaving but something that was noticeable throughout my tenure. Keep making the incremental...

      I worked at Riddell full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      is a very.nice company to work for. Management is nice and helpful as well as my coworkers. I have enjoyed working at celebree for the short time I have been there. Only complaint I have is the pay rate. Little pay for taking care of little people all day.

      Cons

      I enjoy working with my coworkers. I appreciate everyone's hard work and effort they put in. I love my supervisor and how they are willing to make sure I try to get 40 hours per week.

      Advice to Management
