Fun, Innovative Company with Good ValuesJan 31, 2023 - Mechanical Design Engineer in San Luis Obispo, CARecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Fun culture revolving around bikes. Produces innovative products in the world of cycling. Good company values. Cares about customers and employees.
The cycling industry is not as competitive in compensation and career growth as other engineering focused industries.

Could be the right fit for the right personFeb 3, 2023 - Senior Test Engineer in Colorado Springs, CORecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Vast majority of employees are pretty great and share a passion for the outdoor industry. Outdoor industry discounts. Bonus when things are going well. Benefits are decent and vacation tops out at 5 weeks (was 3 weeks when I started!).
Low pay for similar work in OTHER industries. Probably on par for outdoor industry. Lack of career opportunities and growing salary once making it to the senior level (or top level) of your discipline. Bonus is level across the company regardless of individual performance. You either sink or swim together.Continue reading

Good & not so goodMay 14, 2023 - Anonymous EmployeeRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Size- ability to interact directly with Sr. Management work on exciting projects you see in the real world and even use yourself
Functional silos It's improved, but still can be who you know not what you do that matters

Fun and engaging workFeb 6, 2023 - Quality EngineerRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Overall culture is really positive and conducive to a good work environment. Location is awesome and there has been recent investment in facilities
Pay and benefits are definitely not as competitive as some industries, the strong bike culture can also foster some eliteism and bro-culture which can make the environment feel uncomfortable for newcomers or outsiders that aren't obsessed with bikes

Poor work ethicDec 29, 2022 - Engineering in Colorado Springs, CORecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Discounts on bikes and components. Some great people. Low pressure.
HR is clueless as they try to push an agenda. A lot of favoritism. Drinking in the offices is common on certain days. Not a strong work ethic as many just ride their bikes for hours and hours each week. Very much a "bro" atmosphere.

Awesome companyJan 2, 2023 - Anonymous Employee in Colorado Springs, CORecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Great people and great product. You don’t have to be a serious biker to work here but you have to love bikes.
Not a place that holds your hand and tells you you’re special every day.Continue reading

Excellent place to workJun 22, 2022 - Anonymous EmployeeRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
-100% will recommend to a friend. You have to be somewhat comfortable with change, occasional ambiguity, and empowerment. -Engineering function has generally strong management -Great corporate transparency -flat org structure with ability to reach out to anyone -we're growing in our continuous improvment journey -People are empowered to improve their situations by raising concerns, helping with improvement projects, and escalating issues/barriers -Super fun coworkers, great sense of community -Some offices dog friendly -Good training/development opportunities (this can vary by department and how much you know is available and can ask for) -We've taken DEI seriously. Our offices are more welcoming and more fun because of it. -Some flexibility in time for work/life balance, appointments during business hours, etc -High pay for the bike industry, decent for any industry. We might be slipping behind other industries slightly in recent years, but I'm not leaving! (note: total comp includes a bonus. You can't compare salaries with others that don't have a bonus)
-Management/leadership quality can vary by department.

Cool job… but no one caresSep 12, 2022 - Anonymous EmployeeRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
I met so many amazing people internally and externally. Culture is coo and being able to wear casual clothing is nice.
Overworked, terrible pay, upper management doesn’t care about your growth and doesn’t fire managers who have a bad reputation.
