    I worked at Timberland

    Pros

    Great product, Great people... and many opportunities... Although that was a looong time ago! The brand seems to have maintained the integrity from when Jeffrey Schwartz was leading.

    Cons

    Salary wasn't great...and there werent great opportunities for adjustments... and there was a LOT of pressure.

    I worked at Timberland full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great 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.

    Cons

    1. 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 ManagementAdvice

    Be 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.

    I'm an outdoor enthusiast and there are lots of like-minded people working there.

    Cons

    Unfortunately I ended up leaving Timberland because I was offered a lot more to work elsewhere.

    Don't wait until people are headed for the door before you offer them a competitive salary.
