    I worked at TaylorMade Golf (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great brand - being part of the Adidas Group
    Good products - great innovation
    Multicultural environment
    Initiatives and entrepreneurship mindset is welcome
    Good bonus when you reach your target (30% of the basic salary), so you better reach it !
    Good company if you want to start your career in a sports company and do not have experience.
    Playing golf on some of the best golf courses on the Globe

    Cons

    Lot of politics going on. This is slowing down the all organisation and can affect motivation of the staff.
    Current CEO (former European GM) seemed to show more concern about his career path ambition rather than the future of the company and the employees welfare. The question is why Taylormade Europe has never managed to keep its good employees ? What is the HR or talent management strategy? Why every 2 year it's restructuring ?
    On-going operational problems. Main concerns were supply chain and footwear quality issues affecting sales performances and brand image...
    Area sales managers feel exploited ( level of workload/ responsibilities and salary do not match) "squeezed like lemons.
    Please : no politics, more values and more skilled senior managers.

    Advice to Management

    Concentrate on long term strategy and not short term. You will see your sales growing constantly rather than having chaotic performances
    Push your staff to get some academic education. Assess RSM team management. Position should not be a reward due to friendship but due to results, real competencies, a wider business intelligence ( not only restricted to golf) and personal development willingness. Encourage RSM to develop their soft skills and emotional intelligence.
    Improve the quality of products and service to retailers
    Be more visible and encourage business relations and best practices exchanges coming from the Adidas group.
    Directors can you please also foster and practice a good private life and work balance.
