    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.

    I worked at PUMA Group full-time

    Pros

    Starting salary, discount, and bonuses were great. Company offered summer Fridays.

    Cons

    From what I experienced, Puma ran like a start up company. It felt messy and disorganized. There was hardly any communication and no one would accept responsibility for their mistakes. Many mistakes happened because of miscommunication. Many members of management were a joke. They did not have what it takes to lead or guide a team. Puma is lucky to have well known celebrity brand ambassadors because they are what I believe is keeping the brand strong. In the 1.5 years I've worked, I've seen more than enough people leave. Many people left because they seemed unhappy including myself.

    Advice to Management

    It should go without saying but definitely treat people with respect, especially your team. Focus on lifting your team, not breaking them.
