    Low pay, changing from privately owned small business to more of a corporate environment, bit of a boys club

    Low pay. No support from executive level.

    Advice to Management

    YETI is no longer a startup, and it's time to pay employees a competitive salary.

    I have been working at YETI Coolers full-time

    Pros

    responsive, very clear about what the status of the job is and candidate pool and your standing. Asked questions that are relevant to how a person would fit with the team and the position. Truly cared about background and future goals. For a growing company, they are very organized and professional.

    Cons

    YETI is growing and has high expectations. This is not a con if you are an achiever and a hard worker but know your strengths and be ready to hit the ground running.

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

    Pros

    Family-like atmosphere. High-quality employees. Everyone gives a damn, everyone pulls their weight, and they don't have to be poked and prodded in order to do so. Though productivity is through the roof, they also manage to pull off a rather laid-back overall vibe (relaxed attire, lively debates on things like the best breakfast tacos in the city or what does and does not constitute a sandwich, beer/wine on Friday afternoons).

    Cons

    Difficult to focus for introverts/people with social anxiety. Lots of people in a small area, in the office all day, every day. Little to no opportunity to find a quiet space to focus, recharge, knock out some work without distractions, etc. However, this is not a 'con' that applies to the majority of people, and I believe it will be addressed later in 2017 with the move to their newly-constructed headquarters.

    Advice to Management

    Most of my advice would be to keep doing what you're doing. Company is very successful, and it seemed to me like they care about continuing to improve upon the existing benefits year over year. Continue your current hiring methods; slackers were difficult to identify/non-existent from what I could tell. Overall it is a great company and a wonderful place to work.

    I worked at YETI Coolers full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Culture and atmosphere in the office can be wonderful.
    The different types of employees hired is great and allows for an open minded culture in office.

    Cons

    Expectations are unrealistic.
    Management changes and turnover are too frequent.
    Growth trend is not sustainable.
    The office atmosphere doesn't correlate with the outside work environment of the culture of the company.
    People can be more worried about social events, events in office, and "team building" activities than doing there job which makes taking care of the customer difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and stop treating them like they are incompetent

    Pros

    Great people great product! Strong Brand

    Cons

    Loaded the customers up with product even though it was not selling fast.
    Expected sales reps to load customers and hit goals 3x prior year. Just to be a mid cap IPO. $

    Advice to Management

    Go back to the roots and stop being so arrogant

    Pros

    The people I work with are great! It's almost like a big family. The work is easy. We get PTO and benefits.

    Cons

    Management literally has no idea what we do. Management is not appreciative or care. Director is 2 faced so watch your back! You might just get fired.

    Advice to Management

    Quit talking to people like they are kids and have no idea whats going on. Be transparent if you say you're going to be transparent. Also art doesn't just check lines! Sit with 1 person all day and then make your opinions.
