Corporate Paralegal (Current Employee) – Morgan Hill, CA – May 28, 2013
Supporting the General Counsel and Corporate Counsel can be difficult in any company. You are dealing with very strong personalities at this level. However, the job creates opportunities and challenges on a daily basis.
All the pace of Silicon Valley with none of the benefits
N/A (Current Employee) – Morgan Hill, CA – August 2, 2016
After working there for an extended period time, I have seen the company spiral into what it is today. A workforce that is doing all it can to meet expectations of management at a pace equal to or even faster than a company just 10 miles away that would pay 40% more for the work being done. The reality is you are working for your discount on bikes and bike parts, and at a certain point it's just better to work at a tech company who will support the ever increasing cost of living in the bay area, and pay full retail for bikes and parts. If they really want to retain people they would stop building new facilities or making "building improvements" (a dog park, really?) and start paying them more. It may seem like an okay place to work with all the positive glass door reviews, but hey instead of doing any actual work, the HR department likes to make false accounts and create those reviews, instead of any actual work.
Management expects growth and is putting the pressure on. It is partly due to the CEOs constant micro managing and his pressure he puts on all senior level management, which is basically the only thing that trickles down at this company.
What I've learned: Just because it sounds like a good place to work, no "benefits" outweigh the pace.
Best part of the job: It's a beautiful place to work, and you get to be around bikes all day Hardest part of the job: It's in Morgan Hill.
Bike discounts, Gym, Lunch ride
Fast pace, CEO with no sense of self, HR department run with duct tape and string

Part Time Distribution Specialist (Current Employee) – Groveport, OH – February 25, 2016
The job is pretty constant manual labor, but what you're lifting/moving around all day isn't necessarily heavy items. It's a fairly fun job for what it is, and it's a good workout. I probably wouldn't want to do it full-time, but it's a great entry-level job with no previous experience or high education level required.
Lots of break, free fruit, and occasionally donuts.

Package Handler (Former Employee) – Grove City, OH – July 9, 2014
I worked in a warehouse environment. Hard work without got pay or benefits. Poor management, the men were sexist toward me and other women that worked there. Rude and demeaning to workers, expecially toward woman.
Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – January 29, 2014
The people and the work was great. The environment made me enjoy working there. The work load, however, was too much for how few people were employed, and it took 10 months working through a temp service before they would hire anybody.
Great people, free snacks at lunch
Mandatory 12+hour days, only to lose overtime pay by being sent home early Thursday and Friday.
Jr. International Trade Specialist (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – January 23, 2014
I learned a lot about the world of international trade and logistics working here. I never felt overwhelmed by this field that was all new to me. I was supported, directed, and managed rather well. I felt productive and useful, but I still felt as if I could have fun at work and have fun with my co-workers. The hardest part of the job was learning how to work with programs like Oracle, which I had never previously worked with. I was provided excellent training and became acclimated to these programs quickly and felt competent in the workplace.
Gym facilities on site, health benefits, competitive pay
