Pros: medical benefits were great! free food/snacks on occasion
Cons: micromanaging extremely bad, managers were not trustworthy or honest, no full time jobs
New Balance was a nice place to work at one time. But when the CEO stepped down, the company totally went downhill. The warehouse manager was fired & replaced by someone to come in & cut costs throughout the company.
The cleaning crew was replaced with a cheaper company, the air conditioning was shut off in the warehouse to save money (but remained – more... on for the office staff), perks were taken away from employees in the warehouse, (but not the office staff) bosses started micromanaging employees to a fault & were very rude & disrespectful to them, yet the bosses were lazy & one boss was always late & the other boss spent half of his time outside on cigarette breaks. Eventually several full time employees were terminated & were slowly being replaced by a few temporary employees here & there at a cheaper wage with no benefits.
Management was very poor & the managers pretty much stood around doing nothing. After several employees were let go of their positions, everyone was walking on eggshells wondering if their jobs were secure. There is no future for employees who work at the warehouse. It's very sad to see what has happened to a company that once was a very family oriented fun place to work where the employees were once really valued & cared about. – less
