    “REI cares about life and balance, welcoming new people, embracing ‘outsiders,’ and being a roll model for other companies. I love that we actually spend time and resources training people to be better at their job and at making REI a great environment to work at,” says one millennial worker at this outdoor goods retailer.

     

    “The best thing about working at REI is the work-life balance. I feel encouraged to take time off when I need or want it and thanks to REI’s discount program and relationships with vendors. I am able to learn for free and experience activities. I would normally be unable to afford. The other thing I love most is how much they give back to their employees, to their communities and to the parks through bonuses, grants, stewardship and donations,” says another millennial.
