    I have been working at Reebok full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great products. Great discounts, great benefits. Great, authentic fitness culture allows teams to be genuine and enjoy the opportunity to learn and grow. Great training. I have seen many people be promoted from within - hard work is rewarded and the company provides unlimited growth training.

    Cons

    Not much. Favoritism to higher traffic stores. Salary is below average for the position.

    Advice to Management

    Try putting some focus and attention on the lower volume stores and build the whole field.

    I worked at Reebok full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Working in the outlet stores entitled you to a pretty decent discount on merchandise. 50% on a limited number of purchases each month. This allowed employees to try and wear products.

    Cons

    Management has the typical retail industry disease of making cuts to make gains. Profits struggling? At Reebok they won't review product assortments or the quality of the customer experience when they can cut payroll to make up the difference. The focus was always on the key indicators like items per transaction (ITP) and rarely if ever on the experience of internal and external customers. The upper management harassed and abused store management when their ridiculous targets weren't met. Despite the incredible emphasis on these meaningless targets, there were few if any incentives or recognition for managers who were lucky enough to lead a store capable of 'succeeding.'

    Advice to Management

    Figure out WHY you are in business other than to make money. Create a culture where the employees and customers are truly the top priority. Staff the stores with enough people to really elevate the customer experience. If you can get the 'WHY' right, the key indicators will fall right into place.

    I have been working at Reebok full-time

    Pros

    Some good tech and research being done in small pockets. A lot of the products are very good. The culture is very laid back. The company has changed directions a lot in the past, but they seem to be finally be settling on one, and seems to be paying off.

    Cons

    As you'll find elsewhere, it's not very easy to advance, especially for women. The company puts a lot of resources into marketing, but I don't always find that those resources are used effectively. Bonuses have not been paid out at 100% in years. There is a bitterness between Reebok, and the parent company adidas.

    Advice to Management

    Stop advancing people who don't deserve it. Just because they speak loudly, does not mean they are effective leaders.

    I worked at Reebok full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Nothing is good about this place. Even the executives are low class. You should find a job somewhere else. Mandatory Overtime is good for your wallet (unless you are on salary).

    Cons

    The place is terrible to work for. People will lie about you and treat you like dirt. Pay is terrible and always have to worry about getting laid off.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring and promoting people who are scum of the earth. This is the worst place in the world to work at.

    Pros

    Amazing corporate headquarters. Employees are all fun and have a ton of energy. Atmosphere is upbeat and there is always something cool going on.

    Cons

    Lack of clarity from Senior Management. Constant worry of the next layoff. Advancement is very difficult for most employees.

    Advice to Management

    Value those that have been with the brand and are loyal to it.

    Pros

    Reebok has a tremendous culture of fitness craved professionals. The facilities are amazing - wide open space, beautiful campus, huge fitness center with top notch classes offered throughout the day and of course the cross fit box. People here live and breath the fitness and are passionate about their part of creating product and getting it to market. Reebok is on the brink of greatness with their mission - Make people more human through fitness. We are all striving to be better athletes, better parents, better professionals and better humans! I am truly inspired working for this great company

    Cons

    Adaptability is key - things are constantly changing

    Pros

    Nice place to work. People are nice. I personally learned a lot at reebok in terms of design and working with people

    Cons

    Apprenticeship is not too organize. Not all the design apprentices do "design job" I wish there would be more creative work for fresh grad.

    Advice to Management

    Make good and organize schedule for the apprentices. Give managers some guides to work with their apprentices.

    Pros

    Great benefits 401k medical. 50% off employee discount

    Cons

    Merge between Adidas and reebok, did not work. Some times too worried about breathing over customers than making them really feel welcomed

    Advice to Management

    Be more like John Leguillow. Understand and communicate with your employees instead of threatening them all the time.
