    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Good work life balance, fun brand to work for, good benefits package (medical 401k vacation etc), many good people in the finance dept that are hard working and motivated to make things better, I was able to work on many interesting projects.

    Cons

    Very poor salary, good luck trying to get help from other groups everyone is always busy and your requests are often ignored, the HR department is huge and essentially useless god help you if you need to fill a position, NB pushes work life balance but it has resulted in a union type atmosphere where many employees just do the minimum required.

    Advice to Management

    Reward your top performers, shake things up, push people to get things done just coasting along on neutral won't get you to the top.

    Don't believe true work/life balance.

    Pros

    Not much to say other than New Balance has "Great benefits". Robert T. DeMartini seems to be a good person after speaking to him once. Other than that, it wasn't great.

    Cons

    Promotions are nonexistent unless you have management in your pocket. This company is for you, if your goal in life is to keep the same position until you retire. If you don't believe in work/life balance. If you like managers who can't manage. Don't work here if you believe hard work will get you somewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to manage. Take care of your employees.
