    I worked at Reebok full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    There are great options for filling your day with a workout or a coffee. Good parties! Lots if good people to work with. Great campus.

    Cons

    Management changes direction every two minutes and direction doesn't come easy...if at all. No work-life balance...very difficult to plan your life when seasonal calendars are not delivered. Very little value on veteran knowledge...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talent isn't only about "who your best friend is"...reebok has definitely missed out on a lot of knowledge due to money driven cuts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They expect to compete with lululemon and Nike, but they offer an inferior product at the same price. They have at least 3 different manufacturing locations in Asia and they are all made differently and fit differently. They seem to think they can swim with the big fish, when really they are just stuck at the bottom of the ocean!
