    Pros

    Good company
    People are friendly and many are willing to help
    Benefits are good
    Pay for any role is actually well paid

    Cons

    Don't see a lot of focus in developing younger professionals who want to grow within the company. Would be good if they started promoting younger instead of
    Too many VP's.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on younger professionals--build them and they will lead to succession
    Stick to company values
     Acknowledge employees at any level

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

    Pros

    Very good benefits. Company works to improve worker satisfaction. Good pay levels.

    Cons

    Constant realignment within the organization over the past 5 years led to tremendously increased work load. Went from a 40-45 hour work week to 60+. Department your in determines whether you have promotion opportunities. My department brought in outside talent about 90 percent of the time. With the"fresh" blood, traditional Wrangler culture and work -life balance have changed -- and not for the better.

    Advice to Management

    Develop your current employees and give them the opportunity to advance. Review jobs and get them back to a 40-45 hour week.
