    I worked at Arc'teryx full-time

    Pros

    Great products
    Attract many good people
    Nice office

    Cons

    Too many unqualified senior managers
    Not inspiring for staff
    Lot of talk, no real action
    Wrong staff rewarded
    Bullism tolerated, watch out if you are a women; its worst
    Hr not helpful at solving important issues.
    They will suggest you to express your feelings to the bully.

    Advice to Management

    Before the company dies, change your leadership team. This may inspire people to stay. Sexism and bullism should not be tolerated. Maybe its time to put friendships on the side and be rational. The new incentives in attempt to recreate the old atmosphere are a waste of time until you change the leaders of this company. Strong and inspiring leaders are needed!

    I have been working at Arc'teryx full-time

    Pros

    Lots of flexibility in role and no micro-management

    Cons

    Lots of infighting
    Only managers who have been there for 5+ years are accepted

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of those managers who are playing games so that you don't keep losing those employees and managers who are doing great work in order to keep this company moving in the right direction

    I have been working at Arc'teryx full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    If you love the outdoors and love opportunity, this is the place to build a career. With so much change on the business front in the last few years, there are ample ways of getting involved and being part of something really special.

    Cons

    As with all growing companies, there are growing pains. if you love complaining like some of the negative reviews on here, my question is what did you do yourself to have influence and effect change? It's all about cause and effect.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening and engaging to find solutions to drive the business forward culture first.

    I worked at Arc'teryx part-time

    Pros

    The managers were incredibly hardworking, and the other employees were wonderful. It is a great place to work.

    Cons

    A fair amount of the clientele is foreign so communicating can some times be quite difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

    I worked at Arc'teryx full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Arc'teryx attracts really great people, many of which who are outdoor or sport enthusiasts. It is great when the employees have the same or similar interests.

    Cons

    Arc'teryx is growing significantly which is great for opportunities but it has lost some of the things that had made it the best culture. It is still a good place to work however.

    Advice to Management

    I think it is super if management would consider ways of reducing the amount of people leaving because it is a bit impersonal compared to only a few years before when I just started. Big changes in a small amount of time.

    I worked at Arc'teryx full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Employee discount
    Local Brand
    Nice head office

    Cons

    People are promoted to their highest level of incompetidence
    HR is there only to protect managers
    People often cry because it's such an awful working environment
    Inconsistent messaging - some departments are allowed to live the brand while others can't even take a lunch or go to the gym
    Lots of backstabbing and gossip
    Culturally it's the worst place I have ever experienced. They do not live their brand, they squash talent, and are afraid to use new technology. People who have only worked there won't listen to new ideas.
    Do not pay at market level

    Advice to Management

    Take a hard look at what's going on and the mass exodus of staff. Take their exit feedback seriously.
