    Pros

    This was the most positive environment I have ever worked. TMaG definitely did all they could to take care of their employees and were upfront with the business.

    Cons

    Salary is a little below comparable jobs but they make up for it with benefits, discounts on product, and company events.

    Pros

    I work in the retail side and I think that the company couldn't of been smarter than to dive into the retail world. Taylormade opened their first store here in Myrtle Beach in the middle of one of the largest golf Meccas in the United States. The company and its brand speak for themselves and the best athletes in the game are bagging the product. It's a great company to work for and employee moral is high. This company offers great incentives and opportunities. I love coming to work for the game and not retail.

    Cons

    Even with experience I haven't had a lot of room to grow and step into management. I think that there should be more opportunities for that.

    Advice to Management

    Review sales associates based on production. If a sales associate is meeting numbers and moving product then they should be rewarded through monetary gifts, equipment, or first in line for a key holder position. Use your retail outlet as a source for qualified sales reps. Personally I'm a go getter and love seeing goals being met and a sales rep position has been something I've always wanted to do. I think through product knowledge and retail sales experience you could find some very qualified people for sales positions.

    I have been working at TaylorMade Golf full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    After a tough couple of years, the new management team is getting the place back on track. Better decisions, more focus, more professional. Great product and golf's top players playing that product make it pretty exciting. Benefits are more generous than most employers. Fun environment. Nice people. R&D team is top-notch.

    Cons

    Changing industry. Work can be intense at times. Minimal bonuses paid in last couple of years, but that's expected to change.

    Advice to Management

    Stay on the new path and keep communicating to your employees.
