    I worked at Caleres full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I worked for Caleres for 8 years. Over that time, retail experienced a giant transformation as digital became a more and more significant portion of direct and influenced sales.

    Positions (including mine) shifted as the company worked to adjust to a changing environment and what I was able to witness and be a part of was a company in transition, pivoting to meet the needs of the customer and treating its employees and partners with grace and dignity through the process.

    They will open up and even create career paths when it makes sense for the business. When possible, they promote from within and they do an excellent job of helping you find where you need to grow to make the next step in your career.

    Cons

    It's an old company. Some people have stagnated and fallen into a career without pushing for what's next. At times, you'll have to fight uphill to make a way, but you'll find that senior leadership will be there to help.

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring leaders who pave paths.

    Pros

    Open to innovation from any level. Invisible hierarchy for ideas. Passion for creating and maintaining a positive work environment. Focus on steady business results with an investment for big ideas.

    Caleres has plenty to lose. This forces safe, calculated & sometimes slow moves (barely a con).
