"I worked for WLGore for 7.5 years. You need to have superior people skills to work in a leadership role. You also need to have patience if the desire to move up in this company is your end game. Culture of the company is what you make it - however - beware that it is not practiced consistently between buildings which can lead to difficulties in practicing the culture at all. Outstanding work/life considerations. given."

"I have worked as a contractor for Gore fora couple of years. It is a great place to work that understands work/life balance unlike any other company I've ever worked for. I am just sorry that permanent positions within Gore are so limited and it can be difficult to get hired on. Really my only complaint about this company. Everything else is exceptional. Probably the best job I've ever had."

"I've been with WL Gore for 9 years. They make many products for electronics, clothing, medical, and industrial industries. Each division consists of many smaller autonomous groups. Each group has it's own culture. My first 2 groups were excellent, my third was not. Be careful and make sure your career goals align with those of the group you are interviewing with. My review is for my last work group."

"Been working here many years ( 5+). Great place to work if you don't mind low pay. The ranking and compensation process is not fair (good old boy's network - they vote for each other). Expect about 10-15% less than competitive salary elsewhere. Very flexible schedule. Fun projects. People are nice."
