      Work/life balance can be challenging and isn't for everyone. But if you can find that balance, there's no better place to grow your career.

      Pros

      Great Company, Spares no expense on employees, great promotion opportunity, good leadership, fun at times

      Cons

      Not all TR positions are created equal, Work-life balance, regional managers treat TRs as replaceable assets instead of human beings, training for position is not very effective, you deal with a lot of problems and it quickly becomes physically, mentally, and emotionally exhausting, RFS TR pay is an insult once you find out you have the job of someone 2-3 positions higher plus massive merchandising resets. This is any other TR role on hard mode and it highly depends on the size and history of your territory

      Just what I was looking for

      Dec 10, 2020 - Software Developer in Brookfield, WI
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      It's pretty much everything I've been searching for in a work environment...people, pay, culture, respecting work/life balance, the list goes on. In other jobs, it's hard to see your work come to life as it may not be public facing, but here, you get to see/work with the product first hand, and you see the recognition in your work from others around the company.

      Cons

      I started working here either during or just after a massive hiring, so the structure put in place for the smaller numbers of employees was quickly being outgrown and it showed in some circumstances. Since then, there has been at least a few changes to help mitigate it, so this may not even be a con anymore for most departments.

      Fast-Paced Career Builder

      Nov 13, 2020 - Industrial Designer in Milwaukee, WI
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Very fast paced development cycle -- I've launched more product in 3 years than in all my previous jobs combined. Management has done a great job managing COVID-19 precautions, and supporting working from home. Great benefits (vision, dental, medical) Strong commitment to launching consistently quality products Large design team, lots of expertise Huge resources for professional development -- plenty of room for career growth

      Cons

      Keep an eye on your work-life balance. It can be hard to maintain boundaries in such a demanding work environment. Things can be a bit... macho, but it's hard to fault a powertool company for that Very little nice outdoor space available at the brookfield office. Plenty of room for a 20 acre parking lot, though Location, location, location -- Brookfield is a bit of an exurban dead-zone, so be prepared to commute from downtown MKE or Tosa if you want to be near any action. The company has grown a lot in the last few years, so there are lots of inexperienced people vying to make a mark, sometimes to the detriment of team efficiency.
