Strong company, but senior management is out of touch with mid to lower level managers.

I have been working at Wolverine World Wide

Pros

Many excellent, knowledgable people working for the company. Several strong Brands and well capitalized company. Pay and benefits are equitable.

Cons

Longer term employees are often overlooked for promotions and under-utilized given their abilities and qualifications. The company politics typically determines promotions rather than talent and hard work of individuals. Company creates change for the sake of "changing", but misses opportunities for meaningful change. Several business units lack "vision" for the future.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Carefully consider internal candidates for promotions and new positions. Do not simply take the word of a manger responsible for a struggling business unit, do a "deep dive" in order to understand the root cause of a problem or situation.

    Pros

    You get nice discounts on clothes, shoes, etc for family and friends.

    Cons

    Upper managment has taken a serious downward turn since the present CEO took over, all the good upper managment that made the company what it is today have left. It use to be a family feeling operation that really cared about the community, but now it seems all they care about is building it up big enough to rip it apart and sell pieces to the highest bidder. They are the ideal bad corporation with bad leadership.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get new leadership, remeber the community don't just sponsor events create new jobs.
