    I worked at PUMA full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I was at PUMA during a period of incredible growth, and was given incredible responsibility as I proved myself. I had the privilege of being surrounded by a phenomenally talented team of people with whom I'm still friends to this day.

    Cons

    An unbelievable amount of international travel, which was fun at times but ultimately challenging to balance family life and work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Curate the very best of talent and you can own the world.

    Pros

    You receive a great discount working their. Every season you are allotted clothes as your uniform. Worked good with my schedule as needed. Fun environment.

    Cons

    Managers were very pushy with sales. Had to make sure we gave lots of product knowledge to every customers and it will bother them most of the time. Mangers were always behind you. Mangers were not as professional.

    Former Employee - Store Manager in Anthem, AZ

    I worked at PUMA full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The one real Pro was the employee discount which is probably the best in the industry.

    Cons

    training was really not there for anyone above the sales associate position. When I came in to the company from one of their competitors I realized that they had a high amount of turnover specifically the District the involved the Arizona market. out of the 15 stores this district had 12 store managers where new and it was caused from the lack of leadership the District manager had. There was no room for improvement and as store managers we where told to recruit from outside rather than promote from with in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to the management would be to invest more into their employees with training and appreciation.

    I worked at PUMA full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    There were a lot of very smart and fun people I worked with while I was there. It was fresh and exciting. After the working-in period, which for me took about 6 months, they get you off and running. It was a fast paced and challenging work environment that always kept you on your toes. You always found yourself working in both independent and in team settings which kept things interesting as well. I know many of the colleagues that I had there since moved but the group that was in the corporate retail team but they were all fantastic to work with. From the top down. You're opinion truly mattered regardless of any level position you were in. I can't speak for the rest of the company as I almost exclusively worked with the retail team but it still was the only position in my career I looked forward to going into work everyday.

    Cons

    Going into my position I was told during the interview process and a few people after that "After 18 months, if you are in the same position, there is something wrong." I loved the honesty but it was tough to move up in the company. I had to unfortunately leave to advance my career 16 months into the position. I would have loved to stay.
