    I worked at The Rockport Company full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    working closely with coworkers and interacting with the customers was a pleasure.

    Cons

    Upper management without prior notice, informed all employees that the store's lease would not be renewed. This was after being hired just 2 months prior. Left a really bad taste. Wouldn't have taken the job if I new this was coming.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    should be up front and honest with their staff.

    I have been working at The Rockport Company full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The HQ is located in Reebok World HQ so being able to use the Reebok facilities is fantastic.
    The benefits are great, 100% education reimbursement for qualified programs.
    We are owned by the adidas-Group so we are able to leverage their technologies in our products.
    Work with great people who are very knowledgeable about the footwear industry.

    Cons

    We are a smaller brand compared to our sister companies so sometimes at the large all company meetings with the adidas-Group we can kind of get "lost in the shuffle".
    There has been a decent amount of turnover lately which makes doing your job difficult at times.

    No opinion of CEO
