    I have been working at Wolverine Worldwide full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It's an office with A/C. Same hours every day.

    Cons

    The work flow has doubled within a year, at the same time pay has stayed the same. There is zero room to move up in the company, if an opening is available, they will hire outside. There has been a shift in the company within the last two years, where they have moved away from "family" values and have focused on profits. Removing the labels from boxes, switching from boxes to bags, the implementation of sales force, nothing...

    Advice to Management

    Actually listen to all the complaints in the company from your employees, people are leaving every day because the company fails to adapt and meet the REAL needs of it's employees.

    I worked at Wolverine Worldwide full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Loved my coworkers, and there’s a nice discount on shoes.

    Cons

    Claim to be sensitive to work life balance, but actually work you to death with no care or sensitivity to burn out because they want to run lean. Many meetings about planning, with no actionable plans being made until the last minute.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to the employees and actually listen to their concerns and well being.

    I worked at Wolverine Worldwide full-time

    Pros

    As with most jobs, the people are the best thing about coming to work. Many of the Brands under the Wolverine umbrella are cool consumer brands to work on. Working in fashion/footwear is interesting. We have summer Fridays, if your boss doesn’t silently hold it against you for taking advantage of this perk. Small free gym on site. Great shoe discount (50%).

    Cons

    The “highly matrixed” organization structure is outdated and gets in the way of doing good work. Everyone knows it, but does nothing to change it. The senior team has a super conservative and outdated view on things: be physically in the office everyday from 9-5 and just be happy we let you work here. Benefits are weak - low vaca days, minimum number of company holidays, little to no culture, extremely little flexibility...

    Advice to Management

    Without the people, you can’t do business. Treat them better! Remember that to attract and retain the best talent, you have to offer them the same perks and benefits other MODERN companies do - more time off, more flexibility, more emphasis on culture.
