Pros

Probably 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.

Cons

Very 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 ManagementAdvice

Lose 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.

    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 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.
