A confused brand creates a confused business

Fabric Manager (Former Employee)
Canton, MA

I worked at Reebok full-time for more than a year

ProsSmall HQ makes it easy to meet people in all levels easily. Encourages taking health classes on site.

ConsNot a lot of work balance and it could be very clicky. Performance reviews are based on rumors and gossip not a lot of transparency. The brand acts like a Private label operation under Adidas.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe real leaders, makes contractual agreements that best serve the Reebok brand more than the Adi brand. Be less afraid of risk in order to clearly establish Reebok as its own brand.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Think talent, ambition and vision and maybe youll make it back to top of heap

Associate (Former Employee)
Canton, MA

I worked at Reebok full-time for more than a year

ProsLearned a lot about logistics and footwear/fitness lifestyle. Definitely a resume builder. Good culture if you make an effort. Great work life balance (because everyone pretty much leaves by 5-6, a luxury) Cool grounds and building, fun perks, good parties, gym, classes, discount.

ConsCEO did not have a clear vision and was thusly demoted, and many others lost their job. Middle management is undertrained. A classic "top down" ineptitude. because they dont want to pay for quality talent they get marginal manager types. When cuts are made to programs they move people around that they like regardless of that persons experience with new product/program. Had 4 managers in 2 years because of lost business/mismanagement/layoffs. Interpersonal politiking landmines abound. Like most places your happiness depends on who you work with.

Advice to Senior ManagementSeek (and pay) for talent from around the country/globe. Recruiting needs to bone up. Hire top talent and youll get top results. But it seems they dont want to pay/pay to move people and therefore get stuck with a lot (not all) suburbanite seat fillers.

– I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
