    I worked at Brunswick full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits package. (401k, good medical, dental, vision, etc.)

    Cons

    Upper management lacks communication. Unpredictable work schedule. Very high turnover rate for temps. They bring in temps who can't calculate basic math or read measurements, and sadly some who can't even write. Three vp's in the past 3 years. No work life balance, along with dishonest work schedule. No room for improvement. Upper management's idea of managing only consists of threats, yelling, and nothing but disrespect to all operators. Morale is awful, no one is happy. The stress is unreal, all operators are stretched thin to compensate for all the backfills they can't seem to hire. By the way supervisors (right above team leads) are a joke. The ONLY duties that supervisors do that team leads do not is the kronos (which is just call-ins) and staffing meetings (which do no good because they obviously aren't bringing in new people). Other than those two items, team leads have the same duties plus a TON more, and get paid A LOT less.

    Advice to Management

    Quit your jobs.

    Pros

    Lots of room for employees with traditional jobs to move up. A great variety of Brunswick companies have a lot of opportunities to grow and make a good living at the same time.

    Cons

    None really to speak of.

    Advice to Management

    All of them need to stay on the same page.

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    Work life balance is improving.
