After 7 years I saw a great place become less people centered and more profit centered. My friends were knowledgeable and worked hard at their full time jobs. Then in 2013 a new system took away these great paying jobs and made a few select people full time and the rest saw their hours and careers go away. I would love to see REI go back to the greatness that I so loved and admired. I hope that the powers that be will listen and make REI once again 1 of the top 10 companies to work for.
