Pros

Opportunity to:

-- Take on big projects from start to finish with limited oversight
-- Live in Seacoast NH (near Boston, the mountains, universities)
-- Balance work & life (true for most, but not all jobs here)

Cons

    I worked at Timberland part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Paid community service, 20 hrs for part timers and 40 for full timers. Vacation accrual for part and full time employees. Great discount on products, and free products to wear for work.

    Cons

    Increased pressure on individual numbers when not commission based. Hours cut drastically for everyone but management. Management pressuring people to come in no matter what, even when severely sick. Almost no opportunity to advance within the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees like more than just selling machines. (retail stores, not necessarily corporate)

    I have been working at Timberland full-time

    Pros

    Companies can do well and do good. 40 hrs paid time to do community service. Great employee discount for Timberland and other VF brands. Great food in the Gorge. Wonderful employees.

    Cons

    New ownership is changing the culture even thought they say they bought the company because of the culture. Lots of personnel changes in the past year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Timberland is unique. Don't screw it up.
