Everyone in your position is paid the same wage! That sounds super fair until you realize that not everyone is being held to the same standard. Don't bother trying to pick up their slack and stand out from the crowd: raises are not merit based, just a meager annual cost of living adjustment.

    Buyer beware: the awesome policies that make it into every glowing article about the company do not apply to all levels of the company. This is to be expected, but they could do a little less back-patting and acknowledge that their neediest employees are left out in the cold.

    None taken

  • One Thing Employer Could Improve

    Improve my compensation

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. There are many great things to say about the company, it's mission, and most of it's people. However, there's definitely a boys club and you feel it more as you move up. Part of it's the outdoor industry and the machismo that it can't quite shake, part of it is rampant nepotism that's saturated the company for years, and yet another part is the policies that prevents a true meritocracy under the guise of equality. Women can and do move up, but you won't last unless you're a woman who's 'one of the guys'.
