Former Employee - Supply Chain says

"K2 doesn't have a clue how to run a business."


"resources / manpower are not sufficient to handle workload and continues to dwindle with re-orgs."

Current Employee - Distribution says

"Distribution management been there for tooo long and got tooo comfortable."

Current Employee - Marketing says

"There is little to no opportunity for advancement or for pay similar to other Seattle area companies. No training. You will learn nothing unless you teach yourself. Senior managers were promoted from the good old k2 vashon days in the 80s and 90s and are not qualified for the jobs. They won't leave though because they make 100k+ and can't get a comparable job anywhere else. This is why long time employees can't move up. I've been there for 10+ years, through 3 rounds of layoffs. Raises are a joke, 1-2%. Some college educated designers can't afford to work there without side jobs."

Current Employee - Product Planner says

"K2 pay is extremely low, 1/3 to 1/2 of what you'd receive elsewhere with cost of living raises and bonuses dictated by their parent company, Jarden Corp., who mandates increased profitability at all costs.There is little to no regard for employee satisfaction and no career planning. All departments are understaffed and most employees are overworked. The office is a huge warehouse in SoDo with no windows for any non executives and nothing around it but train tracks and pavement."

Former Employee - Senior Graphic Designer says

"Low pay. Unorganized upper management with poor communication. No career growth opportunities. If someone quits you get their work load with no additional pay. Asked to go way outside your job scope then be treated like a junior employee."

Former Employee - Customer Service Representative says

"bad pay limited time off work hours are not flexible No clear path forward for growth within the company"

Current Employee - Warehouse Worker says

"K2 Employee Lazy and getting more pay then Temp Associate."

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee says

"Zero direction from top management 3 CEO's in 3.5 years Constant lay-offs or hiring freezes Up for sale... again Grossly understaffed for demands upper management puts on staff Zero ability to move up in the company unless your best friends with the CEO from the "good old days""

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says

"Lowest moral I've ever seen at a company. New CEO is a complete tool. Absolutely no mentoring or training. Have to figure things out yourself. No upside for advancement. Lots of changes and layoffs while I was there."

Systems Analyst II (Former Employee) says

"Terrible place to work. I couldn't leave fast enough. It's like going to high school with grown ups. I wasn't able to work enough hours in a day. Not only that, the micro-management was terrible. We had to scan in and scan out. The CEO was constantly monitoring eveyone's hours INSIDE the building. Nevermind that we had to catch ferries to get home and still ended up working at home. He didn't think that we were working once we left the building. Therefore, if we were on the premises less than 9 hours a day, we were "talked to". This was over 10 years ago so I hope things have changed dramatically.discounts on productseverything else"

Category Manager (Former Employee) says

"K2 Sports is made of Skiers and Snowboarders that don't want to do administrative work and look to play all day. The work culture suffered from leaders that felt it was acceptable to assign excessive work to females staying at the office while Male associates went to ski and snowboard."

US Sales Manager (Former Employee) says

"Make sure you use any opportunity with K2 to network and move on. not a place for long term growth or development."
