    I have been working at Brunswick full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great people. Excellent product. Very high Safety and Quality standards.

    Cons

    Upper management (Brunswick not plants) has lost touch with hourly employees and expectations. Very little of the profit trickling down to the minions. Pushing workforce beyond capabilities.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your workforce, you are driving them away. Promotions coming from the outside, no path to excel from inside. Such a shame.
