Wilson - A True Sporting Company

Project Manager (Current Employee) Chicago, IL

ProsWilson Sporting Goods is a sports persons dream. Every floor of the headquarters is dedicated to a different sport. The best reasons to work for Wilson Sporting Goods is the team culture and feeling like you are part of the industry. With the team culture, you are expected to be a close player and supporter of company goals and directions. If you are an enthusiastic team member you can really do well here. And you can’t get closer to the action than with the official supplier of footballs to the NFL. The Super Bowl is always a reason for the employees to celebrate.

ConsBeing a sporting goods company, the work environment at Wilson Sporting Goods is highly competitive. Even to the point of being aggressively competitive. If you are not up to the test of being constantly and consistently challenged then this is not the place for you. Sports are aggressive and competitive and so is Wilson Sporting Goods. The IT infrastructure at corporate is very out dated so high speed internet and access to most modern web 2.0 facilities is very limited. In addition the Wilson Sporting Goods brand has been diluted quite a bit. Selling to lower value sales channels such as Wal-Mart and Sam’s club has taken a toll.

Advice to Senior ManagementI have a number of items that would make good feedback to senior management at Wilson Sporting Goods. First, I would tell them that their goals of making a challenging, sports orientated, aggressive environment where the best will not only survive but thrive is being met. And their desire to make everyone to feel part of the team is coming true. I would also caution them on continuing to dilute the value of the Wilson Sporting Goods brand. It has taken a lot of years to build Wilson Sporting Goods, and particularly the Staff brand, into a sports marketing powerhouse. So don’t lose that edge by playing for mass market at the expense of your core, quality customers.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
