    I have been working at Brunswick full-time

    Pros

    I highly recommend Brunswick. It's a big company but has a small company vibe. People are approachable and encouraging. You feel the passion with everyone. From technology to recruiting new talent, there are a lot of exciting and good changes going on with the company. Plus, you can't beat the benefits. Amazing 401K, health benefits and flexible work schedules!

    Cons

    Current office building does not allow people to interact very well. Looking forward to moving into our new space.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. Great things are happening at the company and we are all looking forward to seeing what happens next.

    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.

    I have been working at Brunswick full-time

    Pros

    Ok pay, and benefits. Very few smart people but the ones that are, they are not valued

    Cons

    This is a very blatantly ageist, racist company. The management in most departments are filled with under qualified, cocky millennials that have been granted a chance because of either who they know or who they have sucked up to.

    Advice to Management

    Get new management

    I have been working at Brunswick full-time

    Pros

    I worked at Brunswick full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Easy to get employment with very little understanding

    Cons

    Employment advancement is poor unless related to or a part of the yes sir circle.

    Advice to Management

    Abandone the edipis complex and realize that your managers have no idea what they are doing and are not willing to communicate value added principles, but would rather rely on the flavor of the moment to get through the shift.
