I worked at New Balance full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Benefits packages and compensation are great. The company does truly care about their core values.

Cons

I spent a year with NB in the corporate office in Brighton, MA. During that time I saw multiple people receive promotions due to favoritism as opposed to hard work. I also saw some very hard working people get demoted because they weren't part of the boys club. It's a shame.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Start caring about your employees. Not your drinking buddies.

    Pros

    New Balance has good bennefits and good pay.That is the only thing going for it.

    Cons

    The management treats you like children.They tell you they want your input but only if its what they want to hear. If you disagree with a supervisor or team leader they will find a reason to get rid of you.You will be alright if you dont mind being treated like a robot. I was there 5 years and my supervisor got mad at me and said I didnt know how tto do my job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your associates like human beings.
