    Pros

    The insurance is wonderful!!! Wish I still had it!

    Cons

    If you are not into crossfitt, or are into sports, this could not be the best fit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Decide what lane you want to be in and stick to it. Are you going to be a fitness brand , or are you going to try to compete with the big dogs in the athletic industry. If ,so the company needs to do some serious self reflection and realize they are not in the same zip code with the Nikes, UA, or even your parent company, Adidas.

    Reebok is trying to focus and find a footing in this hyper competitive market. It's a mixed bag.

    I have been working at Reebok full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Many of the non-managment employees are truly talented and hardworking. A great worklife balance in the footwear department.

    Cons

    Almost comedic lack of direction and focus. Weak upper management and weaker Director level. Offen times the wrong people promoted for the wrong reasons.

    Lots of layoffs - I mean 'restructuring' - over the past ten years.

    No career planning.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to make the best product possible - not the best product possible for a price. Stop all of the compromises to the product and don't release something until it is ready.

    Less is more.

    Create a career path to follow for each employment category.

    I worked at Reebok full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Fitness center, plenty of money, big brand appeal. The people are the best part of this company. Also it's a healthy culture. the environment is great too.

    Cons

    Lots of past layoffs, not organized. They don't seem to have a handle on the brand and what they are and want to be. Adidas is vampiring the brand daily. They will never be on level with Nike again. Adidas will never let that happen.

    I worked at Reebok full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Fun place to work. A lot of amenities: good benefits, Starbucks, gym, dry cleaning, large cafe, track around building.

    Cons

    They should do more to promote work- life balance for working parents. I wish they offered job share, part time, & work from home part of the week opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer job share & part time positions. I think employees would be twice as productive in the time they are at work, because they don't have 40 hours that week to complete all of the work.

    I have been working at Reebok full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Discount is good. Works at rebook and adidas. Not much else good to say. They reward for lies and tattling.

    Cons

    Paperwork training. Area and district managers ASK for dirt on assistant and store managers, if you don't have any, they ask you to find some for promotion. Very sketchy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper managers are shady and a liability. You are a law suit waiting to happen. I was asked constantly about me sm and asm and their performance. My area manager promised promotions for poor evals and false info, looking for a new job
