    I have been working at Fila USA full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Work for a fast growing global sports fashion brand along with some of the most hard working colleagues. Be part of an in-house ad agency, so the creativity options are endless when the opportunity comes. Growth opportunity.

    Cons

    Very little work/life balance. Constant pressure to work 10 to 12 hours due to everyone around you are still there after hours. Micro management environment with an evolving workflow protocols and policies.

    I have been working at Fila USA full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The company has been increasingly growing since being financed by Fila Korea. The company has almost paid it's debt back and on way to becoming independent (if they want) from Fila Korea. 2014 revenue grossed exponentially over the previous years and is continuing to get larger. New styles in footwear and apparel as well as broader marketing are some positives that are driving sales.

    Cons

    With all the growth the company there is a little lack with sharing the benefits with the employees. For the first time since the 90s Fila was able to offer bonuses to it's employees but in my opinion I believe that is in lieu of offering raises. A lot of employees have been with the company for 10+, sometimes 20+, years and have not received raises in a long time. Also the is not many opportunities for advancement from within. Major departments such as marketing and HR are really small without any talk of opening up new positions/opportunities. Executive management, particularly in sales, has been known to be difficult to work with in the form of not really understanding ALL business practices and just expecting people to "get things done" regardless of the resources that are lacking to perform tasks.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management would to make sure all departments are aware of company best practices. It's difficult to perform and respond accordingly when working with people who aren't aware of the processes and have no regard for the requirements of others as well as company systems.
