I worked at Wolverine World Wide

Pros

Pretty much the only positive I can say about Wolverine is that the mid level management spends so much of their time in meetings with each other that they leave the lower level employees alone to do what they want.

Cons

See my "pros" statement. You would think based on how many levels of management this company has that it was ten times the size it actually is.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Fire most of the mid level managers. They don't do anything except make it more difficult to accomplish your goals.

    Pros

    Long history of strong financial performance. Good reputation in the industry. Nice community to live in. Friendly midwestern atmosphere. As more people join the company with significant work experience at other companies, the culture is changing for the better.

    Cons

    Tone at the top is negative. Not a well-integrated envrionment. Tendency to be very insulated from the world and to think small.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be afraid of the employees. Open the communication lines and talk to employees. Break out of the box that this is simply a small midwestern company and the best way to succeed is by taking no risks.

    Pros

    Good discount on quality merchandise. Casual atmosphere.

    Cons

    Most likely a good place to work in IT if you are seasoned in your career, if you are entry-level IT - good luck at really moving ahead in your career. To much knowledge hoarding and pidgeon holding.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    DEVELOP your young talent - they are the future of the company.
