    I have been working at YETI Coolers full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The employees take so much pride in the brand and company. Extremely passionate and talented people looking to make people's lives more enjoyable! Collaborative, fun loving, and family oriented.

    Cons

    Fast paced, fast changing environment. If you are not comfortable with change, this is probably not the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to empower us to do what is best for this great brand!

    Amazing atmosphere and people!

    Mediocre pay at the lower positions....probably because it’s so competitive

    Pros

    Great interview - interviewers were prepared; group style interview over a couple hours
    Facilities are amazing
    Work is fresh - there is always something new to help tackle
    Leadership does a good job within reason to share information about progress of the company and to provide feedback on your individual contributions to the team
    Small business feel so you dont feel like you would get lost in the crowd

    Cons

    There is always the desire to buy another YETI product

    Advice to Management

    Keep going in the direction you're headed. Keep bringing in the right people to feed the vision that YETI was created on

    I have been working at YETI Coolers full-time

    Pros

    The people who get it all done are down right amazing especially given all the big demands and challenges that are thrown at them.

    Cons

    Not much - the company has changed a ton and being able to quickly adapt to that doesn’t work for everyone

    Advice to Management

    Hire more managers to support your staff

    Pros

    Generous Company with mostly great leadership. The good leadership works with reps to make sure that customers don't become too entitled. They also believe in the abilities of their team.

    Cons

    No diversity. There are no variety of perspectives or experiences.

    Advice to Management

    When considering new staff, think about what unique qualities they might be able to bring to the table. The more variety of employees you have the more unique the YETI experience becomes.

    I have been working at YETI Coolers full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - People seem happy and want to be here
    - Software team is very supportive and constructive of each other
    - Software stack is interesting, and has lots of opportunities to make design improvements
    - Open office environment, cubicles - but not an enterprise cube farm
    - Employee discounts, free snacks and drinks, gym, parking garage
    - Talent team seems to work hard to keep people happy with events, live music, etc.
    - affordable lunches, cafeteria is subsidized and usually very good

    Cons

    - The company has recently had some employee turnover in software group, but seems to be recovering by investing in local talent.
    - Deadlines are often tight and rushed, reducing first time quality internally
    - Projects seem to suffer from low planning and communication with business stakeholders suffers.
    - If you are not very experienced it would be easy to be frustrated with constant changing priorities.
    - it's a fairly small software group, and career opportunities may be limited
    - Yeti has fairly small standard vacation policy, and did not match vacation days from previous employer.
    - standard holiday schedule is quite small (10 holidays)

    Advice to Management

    - Keep working to make process improvements
    - Keep improving the diagonal management communication to get feedback and support for decisions.
    - Encourage improvements at all levels, less top-down management decisions
    - increase paid time off for senior staff (new hires)

    I worked at YETI Coolers full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Discount on YETI products.
    Free apples and bananas in the break rooms

    Cons

    Developer laptops are locked down by an oppressive and clueless desktop group. There are no sys admins, DBAs, or Enterprise Architects to design build and maintain infrastructure. SAP is viewed as a solution for everything and their is little or no value placed on application development.

    Advice to Management

    "SAP fuels technology innovation at our company" - said no one ever.

    I have been working at YETI Coolers full-time

    Pros

    YETI has a lot of great things to offer, but the biggest takeaway for me has been how YETI has done such an amazing job at attracting/hiring and retaining such an amazing and talented group of individuals. It's so rewarding working with SUCH nice human beings, I love partnering with hiring managers, team members, and collaborating on new initiatives! It's refreshing working with individuals with ZERO ego! The culture is also such a huge part in everything that we do, a lot of companies throw their core values on their career site or slap it on their office walls, but do they practice them? YETI does a great job in ensuring that the values our founders put together are instilled in every YETIzen and everything we do!

    Cons

    Given the stage of growth the company is at, at times it can take a tad bit longer to get something pushed through.

    Pros

    Yeti has been an awesome place to work so far. Everyone here is very helpful and friendly. The work is faced paced but everyone I have worked with so far is competent and really cares about the company. Also great perks like a Gear Garage and summer concert series.

    Cons

    None I can think of so far.

    Pros

    YETI is one of the hottest brands on the market, and it is certainly reflected in the way they treat their employees. From great food to fun activities to live music at the HQ - the YETI culture is incredible.

    Cons

    I can't think of a negative thing to say about my experience with YETI.
