    I worked at Caleres (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great company, great culture, very active in community, salary is good, great benefits, great work/life balance

    Cons

    Seems to be top heavy in management, changes always being made with management which makes it difficult to get a sense of direction, HR not there for the employees only processes

    Advice to Management

    Talk to your employees more about advancement opportunities, help them move forward, recruit them for other positions in the company, not every employee knows their worth
