    Pros

    Brunswick was the largest production boatbuilder in the world. It was an exciting place to work. Many employees had worked for Brunswick their entire careers.

    Cons

    Brunswick was hit especially hard by the economic recession and has closed most of its facilities and laid off the overwhelming majority of both the salaried and non-salaried staff. It was a great place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Why did we ever sell off Igloo, Mongoose, American Camper and other non-marine assets and buy up every boat company we could get a hold of? Those of us that had been around for awhile remembered the cyclical nature of the boat biz. Why did you overexpose the company and lose for most of us our livelihood?

    I worked at Brunswick full-time

    Pros

    Working with a broad range of clients on different issues

    Cons

    Elitest, hierarchical and there is an expectation that you will dedicate your whole life to the firm.

    Advice to Management

    Invite people from different backgrounds to work for the company, and appreciate their presence.
