    I worked at Russell Corporation full-time

    Pros

    At the time I worked for Russell, it felt like a small to medium sized business and were willing to consider new technologies and process improvements. Every department worked pretty well to achieve the ultimate goals.

    Cons

    Splitting up corporate headquarters from the manufacturing facilities did't help the way Sr. Mgt. intended. It was based on manufacturing cost and supposedly to increase the Marketability of the brands.
