    Friendly / fun environment. Easy first job to have in retail. When you start you get to choose 4 items of clothing and a pair of shoes for free. This is done every 3 months.

    Cons

    Store closes at 9:30 but If your shift is to close, then you'll stay until 10:30 or later organizing the store.

    Pros

    Great company perks. Substantial employee discount everything Puma sells: Clothing, Shoes, accessories. You also get a discount with other family companies: Cobra Golf and Volcom. On the first day you start they give you a pair a Puma sneakers. Puma has a very fun and friendly atmosphere. Management is willing to listen and does their part to help you to be successful. Puma invests in their employees by offering courses and training for employees. Puma encourages people to grow from within the organization. Puma rewards those for a job well done with a nice check and recognition. Work life balance is great. They allow employees to leave early in the summer on Fridays. They have many fun events throughout the year. Watch some of the Puma YouTube videos, it truly is a great place to work.

    Cons

    The Westford office could use some renovations in the hallways near the rear employee entrance. The parking lot needs crack sealing repairs. The kitchens could use some updating.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    Great location and there was good management when I first started working there. Positive work environment. It was a fun and interactive job, I met a lot of great people.

    Cons

    Pay can be better, there was no commission. Towards the end, the former store manager and district manager had left and the new management was not good. District manager would visit our store a few times and was very rude and pretentious.

    Pros

    Brand is getting some momentum and products are inspiring

    Cons

    There is no cohesion in the Boston office. Departments work in silos. There are little attempts to create a community life but it doesn't really work out. Overall, employees are treated fairly poorly despite big speeches about "talents", "growing in the workplace", etc.

    Advice to Management

    Poor middle management layer and should strengthened the HR department with more professional people.

    I worked at PUMA Group part-time

    Pros

    The company was very organized, had very efficient procedures in place, and had creative and fun methods of training.

    Cons

    The management structure allows for micromanaging, which can be intimidating to associates. Also too much pressure on sales, needs to focus more on customer relations.

    Advice to Management

    Don't micromanage. Encourage your associates to be passionate about the products and to interact on a personal level with customers, rather than hard sell or pressure them.
