    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at New Balance for less than a year

    Pros

    Discount. Literally nothing else. I’m appalled

    Cons

    Management, HR all in it for themselves and nothing else. From the top to the bottom they’ll grind you down and find little loopholes to make you doubt yourself to the point you can’t even do your job right. They’ll hire you even though they know about your mental health situation and still treat you like a wet wip.

    Advice to Management

    HR and management, you need a heart transtplant because clearly you don’t have one.
