    I have been working at Brunswick full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The company takes great care of their employees with great benefits, perks, and discounts. The FLDP Program is a great way to start a career out of college and they are making great progress at fine tuning it.

    Cons

    No cons right now.

    Advice to Management

    Treat everyone like they matter and try not to make corporate politics a real thing.

      I worked at Brunswick full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Good Benefits and decent pay

      Cons

      This job drained me emotionally and spiritually. It was a very toxic environment with people who clique up like high school and only higher people they know regardless if you have experience or not. The piss-poor management is running the company into the ground and causing them to lose their business to competitors. I would not encourage anyone to invite this kind of negativity and drama into their lives.

      Advice to Management

      Learn how to manage and maybe your company will get somewhere.
