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

Pros

Benefits packages and compensation are great. The company does truly care about their core values.

Cons

I spent a year with NB in the corporate office in Brighton, MA. During that time I saw multiple people receive promotions due to favoritism as opposed to hard work. I also saw some very hard working people get demoted because they weren't part of the boys club. It's a shame.

Advice to Management

Start caring about your employees. Not your drinking buddies.

    I have been working at New Balance full-time

    Pros

    The entrepreneurial nature of the company provides opportunities for all associates to impact the business. Outstanding culture where associate recognition is encouraged. Friendly company. Very flexible work schedules and successful associates are compensated fairly.

    Cons

    The future direction and strategies are sound, but long term decisions to support that direction are sacrificed for short term sales volume. Career development needs to be improved so associates better understand their career path at the company.

    Pros

    Good hours and decent pay. Company is energetic and people seem to enjoy working here.

    Cons

    No upward mobility due to flat management structure. Systems are awful and the infrastructure cannot support demands for information.
