This is a great brand but needs more direction.

I worked at Timberland

Pros

There are so many great people involved with the brand. It is a brand in transition, but employees believe in the brand so strongly it becomes a positive experience. Lots of experience involved with the brand.

Cons

Onboarding is a problem with minimal support and lack of direction. Brand is in transition so opportunities are uncertain. There are some employees that have been there for a long time but experience is not always taken advantage of.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep employees in the loop. One of the greatest assets of the brand is the faith the employees have in the brand. You need to let them in on the vision to keep the faith alive good or bad.

    I worked at Timberland full-time

    Pros

    - Fantastic, quality products
    - generous employee discounts on products
    - 40 hrs paid leave for community service each year
    - most employees are very friendly and outgoing

    Cons

    - Recent buyout by VF Corp. has forced considerable restructuring and downsizing as VF looks to eliminate redundancies

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The key to the company's success is retaining the talent that is still there. Morale is down in the wake of recent restructuring activities; be mindful of this.

    I have been working at Timberland

    Pros

    Community Service/Company Involvement. Allow and compensating staff for being involved within the community.

    Cons

    Changing of corp. management several times, which meant taking something good and turning it into something that wasn't consistant

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good Luck! Allow your staff to take ownership and pride in stores. I know that is what Timberland was built on. I do not think that Mr. Swartz is fully aware how stores are being misdirected
