    I have been working at Allen-Edmonds part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Allen Edmonds gives you the tools to succeed, and doesn't micro manage. They create a superior product, and stand behind it and their people. A great culture of empowering and promoting from within.

    Cons

    The lack of micro managing is also a double edged sword. While it is liberating, there tends to be time that lower level staff is left out of communication regarding company strategy and direction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Paul and Al are doing a fantastic job, they understand the people, product, and what it takes to be successful and are succeeding. I would not change anything and would continue to stay the course.

    I worked at Allen-Edmonds full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    You get discounts on merchandise--not just Shoe discounts. Nice people you work with day-to-day. It is a friendly atmosphere most of the time.

    Cons

    Limited mobility & very tight inner sanctum. There is a certain pressure to get things out, get things done and it makes it difficult to do your best work. Very strong orientation to make numbers, less so to make great shoes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not a great place, not bad.

    Doesn't Recommend
