I have been working at Wolverine Worldwide full-time

Pros

Wolverine Worldwide values their employees. They offer them tuition reimbursement, an excellent menu of benefits, and they often promote from within.

Cons

As in any organization, Wolverine has made many structural changes. Although these moves were for the benefit of the greater good and for the health of the business, it still causes ill feelings with those friends and family members whose jobs have been lost.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Benefits are good, facilities are great, updated hardware, software, office furniture... you'll be comfortable and have everything you need to do your job.

    Cons

    No succession planning, no mentorship... makes it close to impossible to grow your career while there. Also hard to learn anything other than your own job...

    Advice to Management

    Employees don't leave "bad" companies, they leave bad managers...


  2. "Generally good, but weak CEO who doesn't get it."

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Probably depends on which group, but the Outdoor Group culture is pretty good. Lots of great people who are passionate about the brands and the outdoor lifestyle. A ton of potential with more investment.

    Cons

    Very conservative both personally and from a business perspective. Purely numbers driven with very little commitment to brand building and long-term growth strategy. "Double digit growth" is not a strategy, even if the Street likes it. Structure makes it very risk-averse with little willingness to invest in marketing and brand development. A footwear manufacturing company trying to play in a brand world.

    Advice to Management

    Lose the current CEO who is not respected by anyone within the company. There is strong leadership within the company, but just not at the highest level.
