Great people who are passionate about where they work
E-Commerce Marketing Manager (Current Employee), Modesto, CAJuly 18, 2013
Pros: free lunch fridays, employee product discount, good people
Cons: some roles are still loosely defined
5.11 is a growing company who has just moved past the founder stage and while becoming more structured like a corporation they are maintaining a culture that still involves some of the fun aspects of a smaller organization. The CEO is still easily accessible to any employee.

At 5.11 I had my hands in every aspect of the online initiatives. As such I learned to create successful campaigns that were unified across multiple marketing channels with specific budget allocations. I managed nearly the entire budget for advertising which required the ability to make educated decisions quickly based on a combination of all available data as well as market experience. This is not a job for the faint of heart as one must take calculated risks with large amounts of money on a daily basis and provide results analysis for the outcome.

The most enjoyable part of this job is the challenge and the opportunity to grow company with a great product offering.

high stress, low wage, catered lunch on fridays, awesome discount
Customer Service (Former Employee), Modesto, CANovember 15, 2011
Pros: free lunch catered on friday and quarterly, awesome product discount
Cons: if you're not good at brown nosing, this job will ruin your career.
The owner really struggled in his younger life, so he knows the value of a good employer and employee. So it's difficult to understand why he employes managers who are cruel and mean spirited. They seek to make employees afraid of them. I have seen countless people fired and careers ruined for naught. I deeply regret ever taking employment at this place. But a good company to do business with. Not to work for.
