    I have been working at Famous Footwear full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The most important pro I can think of is their investment in their people. The training is top notch, as well as the ongoing coaching. My own store manager is always watching, listening, and making sure he gives us the best feedback. For someone who wants to move up, that is music to your ears! But the company itself provides everything a store manager needs to get you to where you want to be.
    Another great thing is the connection within the district. Each store is its own team, but they also reach out and help each other as a much larger team. If you see another store doing better in a certain area, you can call them up and ask what they are doing to facilitate that. If you are unsure how to do something, you can call them up and ask for help. Our particular district manager is very big on that kind of interconnected mentality and it shows, to everyone's benefit.
    This company WANTS to grow, and its evident in the management they choose within their stores, as well as the detailed expectations of each role.
    I highly recommend this company.

    Cons

    I think the only thing that could be improved is the way in which we see KPIs in the moment. It lags behind a bit. All other daily reports, and especially weekly, monthly, and yearly are EXTREMELY helpful.

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring these managers that view this as more than "just a job". I don't know how other districts or stores are, but I know mine is downright inspiring. I have to believe it's more of the same elsewhere because that kind of investment in people comes from the top down.
    You feel like you, and what you do, matters.

    Pros

    Felxible hours and down to earth DM. I had an awesome staff so I was truly blessed to be able to work with good people.

    Cons

    When you have a manager who doesn't do what they are supposed to it is hard to implement new ideas. That can be with any company though.

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget where you started off. Be the boss you would have wanted when you were an associate.
