      Pros

      Great environment, great benefits associated with full time workers,and great opportunity for positional growth.

      Cons

      The dispersion of bonuses between a team lead and a sales associate is extremely wide. For instance a sales associates (in a competition between stores where the prize is a bonus) would earn $100 dollars where the team lead would earn $400 dollars. Sales associate put in an extreme amount of work, usually more than team leads. Team leads usually tell the associates what to do and that is simply all. New balance's hierarchy system can make one ( especially a sales associate) feel extremely small and insignificant.

      Pros

      The people; some of my best friends are here. Everyone works hard, is so smart, and has fun. Job security; rare they'll ever have layoffs as they treat every employee like a member of the family. Work life balance is great (depending on your manager of course). Great benefits package & health insurance incentives.

      Cons

      -Leadership can't make decisions. The ones they do are decisions by committee so tend to be the easy decision vs the right decision, or their are very short sighted and narrow minded. -Talk about taking risks to grow our brand, but NB is too conservative ($ and legal) to follow through on real breakthrough risks to get our brand seen. -Because NB never lays people off and budgets are tight, there are just too many people with not enough to do! -No growth path. You very quickly hit the end of your career growth at NB as soon as you hit Manager level. NB doesn't believe in titles making it difficult to recruit GOOD people, and difficult to leave because your title isn't on par with the rest of the world.
