    Pros

    Great products, very personable and accessable executive management, company is going in the right direction for long term profitability

    Individual divisions do a poor job communicating with each other
    The CEO wants and expects it one way (the right way), but some divisions are not operating like it seems on the outside

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need more honest and open middle managers and better brand managers

    I worked at Brunswick

    Pros

    Brunswick was the largest production boatbuilder in the world. It was an exciting place to work. Many employees had worked for Brunswick their entire careers.

    Cons

    Brunswick was hit especially hard by the economic recession and has closed most of its facilities and laid off the overwhelming majority of both the salaried and non-salaried staff. It was a great place to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Why did we ever sell off Igloo, Mongoose, American Camper and other non-marine assets and buy up every boat company we could get a hold of? Those of us that had been around for awhile remembered the cyclical nature of the boat biz. Why did you overexpose the company and lose for most of us our livelihood?
