No opinion of CEO

I worked at New Balance part-time (More than a year)

Pros

Good experience working directly with customers, very fulfilling for a retail job, good company/benefits

Cons

Stressful during sales and due to poor management, no input to store/company, opportunities for advancement limited

Advice to Management

You can gain a lot of insight by listening more to the people on the front lines actually working in your stores- they are your untapped resource.

    I have been working at New Balance as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great company integrity and spirit. Everyone loves to work towards a common goal and for a company that truly cares about its employees and the industry. HUGE growth coming in the next few years -- great company to get into now.

    Cons

    Need to be geared towards a younger entertainment market if they want to gain endorsements...which is another focus they are beginning to embrace again.

    Advice to Management

    keep up the good work.
