    Timberland is a wonderful company.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat compensation, benefits, and work-life balance. Timberland is a fantastic company to work for and you can't go wrong.

    ConsThe senior leaders are not as good as they were previously. This should be changed from the top down.

    Simple retail position; easy

    Sales Associate (Former Employee)
    King of Prussia, PA

    ProsLeadership was cool and everything was straight forward.

    ConsTypical retail hours and like any other retail position, favoritism exists. People who were cool with the store manger outside of work had more leeway to do as they pleased.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWatch who you make your store managers. The manager was younger and not all that experienced with a managerial position.

    The Timberland Experience

    Operations Manager (Former Employee)
    Ontario, CA

    ProsGreat culture and family type of environment throughout the company. Former president Mr. Swartz very approachable and hands-on. I could e-mail him and he would respond personally.

    Cons1. Great mission statement: Humanity, Humility, Integrity, Excellence. However, not all facilities shared the vision of the president and this led to a lot of inner and outer contradictions in the workplace.
    2. With the sale of the company the to VF Corp has cause a lot of uncertainty and distrust among each other and the new management. Some justified and some self infflicted.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe straight forward even if it is unfavorable news. This will at least allow the employees where they and the company stands at all times. Hopefully that will restore the trust that existed before the sale of the company.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
