    Pros

    Frequently updated and appealing product with great employee discounts.
    Easy to be interested and confident in the company's new ideas and situation.

    Cons

    Not much focus on low level employees benefits.
    Several incapable managers in retail stores, lacking communication skills and customer-employee interaction and behavior.

    Advice to Management

    Management in retail stores need to act more human in terms of employee and customer interaction. It seems that they are only interested in what their boss in the corporate environment has to say.

    Pros

    Offers a good employee discount

    Cons

    No bonus incentives, change in Management too often, unorganized structure

    Advice to Management

    Bonuses, employee appreciation needed, should care more about the employees and not just into making money.

    Pros

    This brand allows individuality, and promotes a fit life.

    Cons

    Little communication, support, and management training.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management is so focused on keeping their own jobs, that they lose focus on helping lower management to grow.

    Pros

    There are great options for filling your day with a workout or a coffee. Good parties! Lots if good people to work with. Great campus.

    Cons

    Management changes direction every two minutes and direction doesn't come easy...if at all. No work-life balance...very difficult to plan your life when seasonal calendars are not delivered. Very little value on veteran knowledge...

    Advice to Management

    Talent isn't only about "who your best friend is"...reebok has definitely missed out on a lot of knowledge due to money driven cuts.

    Advice to Management

    They expect to compete with lululemon and Nike, but they offer an inferior product at the same price. They have at least 3 different manufacturing locations in Asia and they are all made differently and fit differently. They seem to think they can swim with the big fish, when really they are just stuck at the bottom of the ocean!
