    I have been working at Brunswick full-time


    I've been working at Brunswick for 5+ years. The company has went through several acquisitions in the last few years and a new corporate headquarters. As the company continues to progress, the benefits, compensation, and departments continue to excel. I highly recommend Brunswick as a company to work for.


    Work life balance is improving.

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Brunswick.


    Lengthy process but worth it. You'll meet with a range of people and get a good sense of the culture, talent, and type of work. Come with questions for the interviewer - it shows you understand the company and have a genuine interest.
