A great company with a visionary product but lack of leadership to take it to the next level.

I worked at Rockport full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Honest company, provides it's employees with great benefits and livable wages, under the Adidas umbrella it should skyrocket.

Cons

Senior management (US--not German) is pretty clueless. They have a vision, but no implementation. They have shrunk rather than grown, and it does not seem to get any brighter in outlook.

Advice to Management

You have to grow your markets. You have a world class product at a fantastic price point, but your lack of presence west of the Mississippi is appalling. Not every store will be a superstar , but every store increases exposure to your product.

    I worked at Rockport full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It was a great company to work for because the people were wonderful and attentive to you as a person.

    Cons

    Too many changes within the work environment to truly see where one idea could go before moving in an entirely different direction. They also undercut their own business by providing superior product to vendors over it's own corporate run stores.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs to understand what it is like to run a retail store actually not just theoretically.
