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

    Pros

    Company has an amazing culture and work environment. People are passionate what they do and about the brand and products. Loads of challenging projects and opportunities for continuous development. Great leadership and company-wide efforts to keep employees informed on strategy and results.

    I have been working at TaylorMade Golf full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Innovation and a constant leader in the industry.

    Cons

    Often times people will threaten to leave if they are not promoted. Then they'll get the promotion that they really didn't deserve.
    Team TaylorMade is "not always the case". It's a nice mantra but it's not very consistent to the way that employees are treated.
    The "west coast mentality" doesn't often work in other areas of the country.

    Advice to Management

    Do your homework.

    Pros

    Working atmosphere is great, and your coworkers are wonderful, almost a dream job!!

    Cons

    Working for a company that’s for sale and or bought by a private equity firm. It’s a company that dreams big, but falls short of what it tells employees they will do for them. They expect more from some employees that then gets them nothing but it benefits another departments pockets.

    Advice to Management

    You can’t ask some people to cover areas for another department, but then give the benefits to the person not doing the work. When you tell a group of people they are next in line for promotions or jobs and 85% of the time hire from outside, that’s a moral killer and a black mark.
