Pros

WWW has over 100 year history in the footwear business, manufacturing and sales. The people who work for the company are incredibly nice and committed to the company. It has a good formula for financial success with a broad stable of brands and distribution in over 140 countries worldwide. It has relatively young senior management team that is introducing new ways of doing business.

Cons

The 100 year history also has resulted in entrenched, old-world business practices which are difficult to change organizationally. The company is located in Western Michigan, a beautiful, but remote area making it difficult to recruit top talent and a pain for business travel. Also, not a pool of diverse talent.

Advice to Management

You are on the right track. Continue to drive standards and requirements high to build bench strength. Takes some risk: fund professional development and drive sales growth vs. control expenses. Work harder to build relationships w/customers and consumers alike.

    I worked at Wolverine Worldwide full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    It was fun working with the kids, and the job itself was mostly enoyable.

    Cons

    Retail hours don't always allow for the best work/life balance, especially during busy seasons. Some customers could be quite difficult.
