Generally good, but weak CEO who doesn't get it.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsProbably depends on which group, but the Outdoor Group culture is pretty good. Lots of great people who are passionate about the brands and the outdoor lifestyle. A ton of potential with more investment.

ConsVery conservative both personally and from a business perspective. Purely numbers driven with very little commitment to brand building and long-term growth strategy. "Double digit growth" is not a strategy, even if the Street likes it. Structure makes it very risk-averse with little willingness to invest in marketing and brand development. A footwear manufacturing company trying to play in a brand world.

Advice to Senior ManagementLose the current CEO who is not respected by anyone within the company. There is strong leadership within the company, but just not at the highest level.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

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

    Pros: Many excellent, knowledgable people working for the company. Several strong… 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… Advice to Senior Management: Carefully consider internal candidates for promotions and new positions. Do not simply take the word of a manger responsible… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
