    Huge gap between "say" and "do" at HQ

    I worked at VF full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Awesome people and brands. Ability to wear jeans every day a plus. Culture at brands far better than at corporate. Corporate could be a wonderful place to work -- likely best for someone early in career who will move on after a few years.

    Cons

    As one exec told me, "We talk a good game and then always cheap out." Resources (budget and people) hard to come by for support functions, except finance. This leads to extremely outdated and ineffective infrastructure. Decentralized to the point of not having effective processes in place. Extremely cordial culture hides an extremely passive-aggressive undertones/practices. Very limited growth potential; not a good environment for female professionals. Earnings are all that matters. Huge gap between what leadership says and does. Bottom line, positive earnings releases hide many issues that need attention.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Culture eats strategy for breakfast. Don't push loyal people to the point where they don't care any more. Don't take too much comfort in the culture survey. You'd be surprised (if you care) how many employees are already there.

    I have been working at VF full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    PTO days, health benefits and work life balance are good.

    Cons

    Nautical furnishings sales dept. is the worst group of sales people I have worked with in the 11 years I worked in this industry. To sum it up they are the most lazy overpaid Account Executives with base saaries of approx. 100k!! There was zero partnership and accountability!! It became a very frustrating experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Needs to look at the Account Executive role and responsibilities in this division because writing orders and shopping online all day does not warrent a salary of 100k while other depts carry a serious workload for a 3rd of the salary.
