      Pros

      Great people, flexibility & work-life balance. Community at large passionate about cycling and living a balanced, active lifestyle. Get to work on improving and developing technologies for a booming industry.

      Cons

      Some elements of SRAM operate as if it were a smaller company. Lower pay than other companies. Unclear what career growth path options are, but SRAM does hire and move people up internally if they have those ambitions.

      Pros

      If you're passionate about cycling, you will work with great people who are equally passionate. There are many supportive leaders. If you can clearly convey good ideas, you may get a chance to shine. In sales, sales support, product management and marketing, you can get to see many parts of the world. SRAM has large offices and design centers in the USA, Europe and Asia. SRAM's bonus structure is very fair, with a portion of profits being shared among employees in good years.

      Cons

      The bicycle industry has been one of the last to embrace the digital era. There are driving forces within SRAM, but changes to the value chain are going to happen slowly. Choose one of the smaller brands or divisions if you embrace change. Long relationships combined with frequent low-value interactions are relied upon to get things done -- both inside the company and with customers. Choose the right position if you're an introvert.
