Pros

This company use to be a leader in the retail industry and is good place to work when you are in with senior management.

Cons

Coldwater is in a downhill slide. Stock is dropping dramatically and moral is horrible. Training is not a focus and most people are unhappy with the work conditions.

Advice to Management

Focus on your employees and reward those who are trying to do a good job with the limited resources that you provide.

    Pros

    Location. Snow, lakes, forests make for wonderful days-off. If you are female and like Coldwater Creek's clothes, the discount is great.

    Cons

    The retail industry is very susceptible to the economy.
    If Dennis gets an idea, everyone jumps and makes it happen.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on making clothes at a price that women want to wear and are willing to pay for. Invest in the best and brightest people in product development and in business intelligence.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Sales Associates are great, no jealousy, very compatible.

    Cons

    Management turns a deaf ear, if there are two sides of a story, there really is only one, and it is NOT the one you offered. Hostile environment, lots of bullying, insenstivity, if you are not a "favorite" then you are nothing. Used and abused verbally and emotionally. iF THERE ARE NO JOBS ANYWHERE, DO NOT APPL HERE.

    Advice to Management

    Quit claiming you care, sweeping problems under the rug only contribute to a stinky rug. Listen to ALL of your employee and not just Management.
