    I worked at TaylorMade Golf

    Pros

    TM makes great products that the employees can really stand behind. Flexibility with schedules.

    Cons

    Lack of trained leadership and management. Overall, underqualified management structure. Most people moved their way up through the ranks of TM without any formal training. This perpetuates known issues. Nepotism running rampant. You WILL be passed over for a position if someone's family member applies for the same one. Compensation is not competitive. HR will tell you it is. It's not. Speaking of HR, terrible at... discretion and hardly ever around. Sexual harassment is out of control and everyone turns a blind eye. No female leadership. Culture is hyperfocused on being fun - meaning people often get away with inappropriate behavior, like drinking on the job.

    Advice to Management

    Get some real training and start being leaders. Fire people who need to be fired and stop letting people be a drain on the company. The company is failing because people are allowed to keep their jobs who shouldn't be there.

    I have been working at TaylorMade Golf full-time for 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.

    I worked at TaylorMade Golf full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great product, decent travel, events, discounts on golf.

    Cons

    Horribly negative environment where back-stabbing is a way of life. Internal communications is disjointed / non existing and teams do battle rather than work together. Upper management is a old-boys club. Young talent not recognized because the 50-70's crowd rules the roost and are untouchable for some reason. With a declining culture/morale and pending sale of the company, avoid at all costs!

    Advice to Management

    You are your own worst enemy. Think about how you'd like to be treated in the workplace. Treat staff with dignity and respect and set them up with the tools to succeed.

    I worked at TaylorMade Golf full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great product, great people and employee benefits/perks. Good compensation as well.

    Cons

    Management doesn't always recognize or reprimand when appropriate. A lot of employees get away with doing the bare minimum while some get promoted who clearly do not deserve it.

    Advice to Management

    Manage your employees better. Better understand their workload and duties. Don't work your employees to death like the Marketing Dept does.

    Pros

    Great benefits, great products. This company dominates the golf industry so many doors are open.

    Cons

    The company seems to use the philosophy if it ain't broke, break it. This is particularly true of its sales leaders.

    Advice to Management

    In general, this is a great company to work for. It seems they like to go outside the company to find its top management for the sales divisions. You have great people already in the organization... give them the opportunity.
