    A few great brands but overall a very disappointing work experience

    Sales Analyst (Former Employee)
    Rockford, MN

    ProsGreat Brands
    A lot of really good people

    ConsPoor leadership
    Top down approach that does not value input
    Senior Leadership does not appreciate open or direct feedback
    Very poor process mtg

    Advice to Senior ManagementLeadership needs to connect more closely with the brands in order to drive great brand mtg and growth. Sr. leadership seems "to corporate" and fully disconnected from the brands.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    To big to fail

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsYou get nice discounts on clothes, shoes, etc for family and friends.

    ConsUpper managment has taken a serious downward turn since the present CEO took over, all the good upper managment that made the company what it is today have left. It use to be a family feeling operation that really cared about the community, but now it seems all they care about is building it up big enough to rip it apart and sell pieces to the highest bidder. They are the ideal bad corporation with bad leadership.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet new leadership, remeber the community don't just sponsor events create new jobs.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    More layers of management than imaginable

    Sales Representative (Former Employee)

    ProsPretty much the only positive I can say about Wolverine is that the mid level management spends so much of their time in meetings with each other that they leave the lower level employees alone to do what they want.

    ConsSee my "pros" statement. You would think based on how many levels of management this company has that it was ten times the size it actually is.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFire most of the mid level managers. They don't do anything except make it more difficult to accomplish your goals.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
