Reception/Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Appleton North, Elkton, MDOctober 6, 2017
The Culture at Gore was remarkable. We make money and have fun. Atmosphere is very laid back. We were all treated alike and would help others to help them to succeed. I would stay here for the rest of my life if given the opportunity. Always fair to all. Company events for team buildng. Great place.
Pros
Team building Events
Cons
When you have to leave.

Associate (Former Employee) –  Elkton, MDSeptember 28, 2017
If your work groups doesn't like you - you're toast. No matter if you have more education and experience than anyone in the group. Your "sponsor" makes all the difference too. My sponsor sucked!!

Easily the best place I have been employed
Mechanical Design Engineer (Current Employee) –  Flagstaff, AZSeptember 26, 2017
The only reason why I would think of leaving is for relocation back to Colorado. W.L. Gore & Associates do really care about their associates. The company stresses balanced work/home lifestyle and provides a stress free environment in which it's associates thrive.
Pros
low stress environment

Good job to retire in
Manufacturing Operator (Former Employee) –  Flagstaff, AZAugust 17, 2017
A good employer if your ready for a solid career. the management can be delayed and a bit reactive rather than proactive. Advancement is based more on loyalty and seniority than qualifications. That being said it is a nice environment and a very easy job. The enterprise is going through a massive shift in how it operates and it can be felt within.
Pros
great facilities, time off, flexability, decent compensation
Cons
slow management, not much advancement, delayed compensation.

It's A Cult
Administrative Support (Former Employee) –  ArizonaAugust 10, 2017
Company offers decent benefits, but pay is below average. Most disturbing: the celebrated "Gore Culture," which is bizarre and cult-like. If you are willing to assimilate to the Gore hive-mind, you will succeed. Ask too many questions and dare to challenge the almighty Gore Culture in any way, and you will quickly find yourself shunned, excommunicated, labeled a "disruptive person," and cast aside. Scientology is more fair and reasonable. Stay away. Stay far away....
Pros
Free food, decent benefits, lots of social stuff
Cons
Bizarre, cult-like corporate culture

Gore is not what it use to be.
Medical Device Operator (Current Employee) –  Elkton, MDAugust 1, 2017
You learn about Gore culture that most associates do not follow. You get to judge your peers on their contribution to the Enterprise, but they get to do the same. Leadership is a push over; they don`t stand for anything. You get 8hrs to volunteer.
Pros
You can develope youself as a better associate.
Cons
Leadership shows favoritism towards their friends.
