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

Conspush you so hard to sell and do better and never recognized when you do a good job, and no compensation for doing a good job, and it's minimum pay

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Fun, marketing-centric company

Co-Op (Former Employee)
Canton, MA (US)

I worked at Reebok as an intern for less than a year

ProsGreat for fitness lovers, awesome facilities, lots of team bonding, fun outdoor events during the warmer months

ConsSome communication tends to be lost between business units, the overall brand image can be confusing because there are so many different departments (Classics, Sport, Kids, Crossfit, Spartan)

Advice to Senior ManagementReassess the voice of the brand to encompass all of the individual business units

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

A confused brand creates a confused business

Fabric Manager (Former Employee)
Canton, MA (US)

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

ProsSmall HQ makes it easy to meet people in all levels easily. Encourages taking health classes on site.

ConsNot a lot of work balance and it could be very clicky. Performance reviews are based on rumors and gossip not a lot of transparency. The brand acts like a Private label operation under Adidas.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe real leaders, makes contractual agreements that best serve the Reebok brand more than the Adi brand. Be less afraid of risk in order to clearly establish Reebok as its own brand.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
