    I have been working at PUMA Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    You will consistently be treated fairly at PUMA. Field management, HR partners, corporate partners are extremely helpful and easy to reach when needed. Goals and expectations are motivating because they are realistic and challenging. I truly do love coming to work everyday, and I do believe I have the greatest boss.

    Pay is competitive. 401k matching. Great Insurance coverage. Awesome discount. Great product.

    As a Store Manager I consistently work 40 hours per week. That is unheard of in the retail industry. Vacation time, paid holidays, sick time--I get a ton of time to spend with my family.

    Our holiday season is joyful rather than stressful with plenty of help with preparation and enough coverage to be successful.

    Cons

    I wouldn't really list anything as a con. I guess I have to fill this space though in order to submit a review.

    Advice to Management

    Just know your field management is second to none. Thank those people every day because they do so much to keep us all motivated and supported. Continue to do what you do, treating us fairly with positive energy, and always listening to what input we have.

    I worked at PUMA Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    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.

    Pros

    Had a lot of involvement in the community. Fun up beat place to work. Free clothes and shoes every quarter was a nice perk.

    Cons

    District Manager preferred to hire gays and lesbians over straight people based off her own preference. I am definitely pro choice, but don't think it's right to choose one candidate over another based off sexual orientation.

    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.
