Does YETI offer massages?

Pros

On-site cafeteria and coffee shop were a huge perk that once you leave you'll truly miss. It's a fun work environment and the people are amazing. The benefits are solid and you get a great discount on YETI swag. My immediate managers were easy to approach and I was surrounded by several likeminded people.

Cons

They're constantly re-engineering their corporate/department structure and make loose promises to promote within. 80 percent of the time they were hiring from outside of YETI for positions that would've provided a growth opportunity for long-time employees. It was clear that senior management had no clear message they wanted to send to employees looking for growth opportunities but they were happy to say anything to keep them invested as an employee.

Advice to Management

Realistically YETI was in a place where they needed to outsource to find talent that would help the company grow however, they should've been far more transparent about this with employees as to not generate false hope. By eliminating the structures that were in place and attempting to convince employees that they had as much of a chance or more so for growth opportunities when they did not, affects employee morale and looks poorly on management.

Does YETI offer parental leave?

Pros

-Abundance of opportunities to work on meaningful projects, don't feel like just another "cog in the wheel," it's easy to see the impact you're making in your daily work -The impactful and challenging work leads to accelerated development of skills and expertise -Surrounded by self-motivated employees who take ownership in how their work contributes to the success of the YETI Brand & products – culture of working hard and collaborating to drive strong results -Feedback-driven culture – quarterly feedback discussions with managers rather than formal, stuffy annual reviews – allows for more timely and frequent feedback and career development conversations -Hard work and strong results are rewarded through development opportunities (stretch assignments, mentorship, promotions) and Company-wide recognition -Sr. Leadership is present in the office daily, lots of opportunities for exposure to C-Suite whether in formal meetings/presentations or more casual settings -Great benefits – starting 4 weeks of PTO, paid service day, multiple options for medical/dental/vision; new and more competitive parental leave and 401k programs rolled out in 2020

Cons

-The Company is growing quickly and as we expand internationally, there's a lot of gray area and fast-paced changes, and employees need to be resilient and adaptable to succeed -If you’re looking for a job where you can “coast,” this isn’t the Company for you. The most successful employees are those who are self-motivated and not afraid to go the extra mile (whether that means getting out of your comfort zone, or putting in extra hours)

Does YETI offer a wellness program?

Pros

Amazing pro deals and discounts. Cool, driven, and talented people.

Cons

Terrible pay. Terrible raises. I worked there for 3 full years and left making not much more than I started. Competitive to advance. Management pretends to care for the middle man but nothing ever happens. You’re stretched extremely thin. Absolutely NO diversity.

Advice to Management

Listen to your employees. Some lazy/comfortable managers have done the bare minimum and put everything on their staff. Employees who “don’t have the look” are bullied by their managers and were scared to speak up. When they finally do, nothing happens. So many talented people have left, not because they “rode the coat tails of YETI” but because you took advantage of how much they loved the brand and never rewarded them. Stop spending so much money on videos, events, media, marketing, and give it to your employees!

Amazing pro deals and discounts.
