    Some structure, process, and systems are not yet in place, making things more challenging; still building the foundation for the company but headed in the right direction

    I have been working at Kontoor Brands full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great respect for work/life balance (the only place I've worked that cared about my mental health or asked), great benefits, competitive pay, inclusive atmosphere (lots of employee resource groups), employee discounts...all of the good things that come with working in corporate America, but they've somehow retained the attention to treating employees well that you'd typically see in a smaller business. Managers really care and have your back but aren't shy about offering constructive feedback that helps you grow - most everyone in the upper crust of management is accessible and down to earth. So much so, in fact, that I was shocked to find out as a relatively new hire that the stranger I had been politely waving at in the hallway for months was one of the highest ranking people at our company. Everyone is real here.

    Cons

    Newer company, so they're still working out some infrastructure kinks in various departments. It can get a little cumbersome, but never unmanageably so.

    I worked at Kontoor Brands full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    80% of the people are very nice, and some of the management is very caring.

    Cons

    Zero work/life balance.... I mean ZERO... People are everywhere putting out fires. No solid direction, or communication until its time to be reactive. Business needs come before Security needs. This environment will change who you are as a person.
