    I worked at Russell Corporation full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    They had great medical benefits, 401k plan, dental, training programs

    Cons

    Like I said earlier, they were behind in technology, always buying, using older machines than what they have to save money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get to know the people that work for and make you look good to get the big bonuses.

    I have been working at Russell Corporation

    Pros

    the best reasons to work for russell atheltics are the fact that the company has been around for over 100 years. Russell Athletics was purchased by birshire hathaway and and is now back by one of the most prenominate investers and the worlds richest man. the people here are great and wonderful to work with. each analsyst has a direct impact on the business and that is very satisfying. Atlanta Georgia is a great place to live and work and you will meet great people in this city. The compensation is good as well as the benefits package that's provided.

    Cons

    the downside to working at russell are the systems are a little outdated and it takes a while to retreive desired information.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management is great and i wouldnt give any feeback
