Disapproves of CEO

Pros

You get nice discounts on clothes, shoes, etc for family and friends.

Cons

Upper managment has taken a serious downward turn since the present CEO took over, all the good upper managment that made the company what it is today have left. It use to be a family feeling operation that really cared about the community, but now it seems all they care about is building it up big enough to rip it apart and sell pieces to the highest bidder. They are the ideal bad corporation with bad leadership.

Advice to Management

Get new leadership, remeber the community don't just sponsor events create new jobs.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Pretty much the only positive I can say about Wolverine is that the mid level management spends so much of their time in meetings with each other that they leave the lower level employees alone to do what they want.

    Cons

    See my "pros" statement. You would think based on how many levels of management this company has that it was ten times the size it actually is.

    Advice to Management

    Fire most of the mid level managers. They don't do anything except make it more difficult to accomplish your goals.


  2. "Strong Financial Performer, Culture Needs Work"

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Long history of strong financial performance. Good reputation in the industry. Nice community to live in. Friendly midwestern atmosphere. As more people join the company with significant work experience at other companies, the culture is changing for the better.

    Cons

    Tone at the top is negative. Not a well-integrated envrionment. Tendency to be very insulated from the world and to think small.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid of the employees. Open the communication lines and talk to employees. Break out of the box that this is simply a small midwestern company and the best way to succeed is by taking no risks.
