    I have been working at Brunswick full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There is great sense of trust, appreciation, and value here. Great work/life balance, work from home options, and great benefits package. They encourage branching out of your set duties to grow within the organization.

    Cons

    The corporate office is pretty far north so commute can be an issue at times.

    Advice to Management

    Keep trusting your employees and treating them as equals. I love that the C-levels are all so approachable and down to Earth.

    Pros

    Positive workplace, greatly enjoyed those I worked with. Culture is in progress of being transformed to be coming more active and engaging, noticeably through a focus on engagement and exercise

    Cons

    Employee engagement was in the process of improvement upon leaving, but too ingrained to change before I had left

    Pros

    Good Pay, Good Work life balance

    Cons

    Brunswick likes to act like they have good ethics, but it is only when it benefits the top management. They don't care at all about employees or shutting down factories if it puts a couple extra dollars in their pockets. Employees work hard, but are not provided what the expectations are in order to succeed. Corporate management takes care of themselves, but they forget who makes them the money.

    Advice to Management

    Follow the same ethics that you preach.

    I have been working at Brunswick full-time

    Pros

    Decent Pay in some areas, plenty of work, fun American hand built product, interesting business, growing and opportunities to bring positive change

    Cons

    Disorganization, communication, low tenured management, pay in some areas, no consistency in upper level management, lots of OT from being consistently behind schedule (improving slightly as of late)

    Advice to Management

    Build a consistent strong leadership team. Define consistent goals that are achievable and sustainable. Open up communication with production floor (monthly huddles) how things are going, next steps, etc. Continue to simplify the product lines to increase flow and bring balance between offerings and monthly goals. We are our own company, we should not strive to be the "other" brands.
