    I have been working at Wolverine Worldwide full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Competitive salary and benefits. Friendly, casual work environment.

    Cons

    Very short term vision that gets in the way of stated long term goals. In the five years I worked here, I had five different managers due to multiple "re-orgs". Each time, senior management stated that this was part of a long term vision to get the company back to a competitive and financially stable base of operations. However, if the changes do not have the desired effect within one year, they pull the plug and start again. These decisions appear to be entirely driven by the immediate need to placate investors at the time of annual reporting. Wolverine is headquartered in Grand Rapids Michigan with offices in Boston following the 2012 acquisition of Collective Brands. Over the intervening years, many key Boston based roles have been migrated to Michigan, so you should bear this in mind when applying for roles in Boston.
