Overall the company is fairly good, at least for 2017 and probably 2018 - compared to the competition NB is much better and more worker oriented - we are not a public company and we do not have to cut labor every quarter as things change on Wall Street. I work in a store and I have mixed feelings - I like the brand and how they manage the product and marketing. At the same time I had 3 store managers in two years, attrition is a problem. There is nepotism and people do favors to each other - that s---s when it's done in a professional setting.
Scheduling may be a problem for some as you will be given the worst shift if you are not close to the store manager.
Overall, no layoffs, no store closures and things are good at New Balance.
