    I have been working at Reebok full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Discounts, travel, and nothing else

    Cons

    Terrible upper managment and directors, people in decision making positions don't understand product or culture, it's laughable. Directors dont direct. Cost is top priority, good product is at the bottom. Lower pay then competitors. If you want to create something new, don't come here. Zero growth potential, managerso don't care about growing young designers
     Wrong people get promoted for wrong reasons.

    Advice to Management

    Replace yourselves with competent people

    I have been working at Reebok full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great workout facilities and gym area. The employee discount program on all athletic apparel and foot ware is a great bonus. Free parking for commuters is available on campus.

    Cons

    Limited opportunities for employee growth and mobility towards upper management positions. Long hours and strict vacation policies make the working environment seem harsh and overly intense.

    Advice to Management

    Be More Human

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

    Pros

    Discounts, work-life balance, fitness center with equipment to borrow (bikes, snowshoes, etc), casual dress, massage, physical therapy, dry cleaning, hair salon, young culture

    Cons

    Very flat organization with little room to grow especially if you're in a global position for adidas-Group. All senior management positions are primarily run out of Germany or your boss will be in Germany dictating what you should do. Promotion opportunities are not based on merit and track record but based on whether you're willing to travel, relocate, or are a close buddy of Senior Management.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be so location focused. You are losing talent simply because they're not in Germany yet the US market is sinking year after year. If you hire young people, you need good solid managers to guide them. Motivation and brand loyalty requires appreciation of employees at every level and leading by example.

    I worked at Reebok full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Nothing is good about this place. Even the executives are low class. You should find a job somewhere else. Mandatory Overtime is good for your wallet (unless you are on salary).

    Cons

    The place is terrible to work for. People will lie about you and treat you like dirt. Pay is terrible and always have to worry about getting laid off.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring and promoting people who are scum of the earth. This is the worst place in the world to work at.

    I worked at Reebok (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Insurance & discount. Paid holidays, vacations (if you get them). Honestly it does not have any pros except that it's in a mall

    Cons

    So disorganized & sexist. I'm a female with more than 5 years retail experience. All the other managers got paid more than me except another female manager and I came from a store worth more than 5x the reebok at the philadelphia outlets. Training was awful. I asked to get taken off the 401k and insurance and they never did. When I was on vacation they dropped all full-time employees to part time and didn't tell me until I got back from vacation and gave me a 36 hour notice of when it will be in effect. My pay got cut in half, no more paid holidays, vacation days, insurance, nothing at all. They knew for about a week and didn't tell me. Higher management was so dysfunctional. Worst retail experience I've ever had, made me ashamed to say I worked there. I was so miserable.

    Advice to Management

    Advice to management: quit while you're ahead. Complain to HR, because other management will put you on the back burner and so will corporate

    I worked at Reebok full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Reebok was once a great place to work. It was fun and very people oriented. Great work - life balance, benefits, and discounts.

    Cons

    Once adidas took over and moved its upper management in the fun stopped. Constantly restructuring and changing strategy, while pushing great people out of the organization.

    Advice to Management

    Follow through on what you say and commit to. You talk about wanting to develop talent and invest in people and yet you do the exact opposite.

    I worked at Reebok full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Amazing discount, fellow associates were amazing, this is a Fitness cultured workplace so the work uniform/dress code is very relaxed...you get to wear what you wear to the gym or if you don't work out you lounge around your house in!! Certain Leaders are amazing to talk with and pick their brain and have as mentors.

    Cons

    Lack or WORK/LIFE BALANCE. Don't try to call in sick ever, you will be told that you will still have to come in anyways, regardless of how sick you are and that you will just have to suck it and get over it!! They use the camera system that is installed to prevent shop lifting as a means to track employees and spot them doing something so they can fire them, regardless of whether the issue is actually something to be fired over or not!!

    Advice to Management

    Quit being petty little high school drama filled girls!! Not everything is a life or death situation, and not everything is exactly as how the camera conveys it!!

    I worked at Reebok part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Reebok was clear about their mission statement, when it came to the company and their expectations. Very much into fitness and promote motivation through product and employees.

    Cons

    Did not feel appreciated by the company or the staff that I worked with. Also I attempted to shop online and purchase items through the website as a employee and did not get any assistance from staff, website, or technical support.

    Advice to Management

    Take responsibility for yourself, staff, and store and remain professional at all times.
