    Cons

    under reliance in India,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Indian market: no marketing done, market potential can improve if marketed well. NO PR done, price bracket too high for the Indian Market. Target audience not justified in India. Targeting premium customer is not the way to go about for timberland. Timberland caters to different social catogeries depending on what intent the product is being purchased for

    I worked at Timberland full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Relationship with staff, team environment. Benefits are decent, raises not so much. Great perks at the Holidays for the staff. Good quality product.

    Cons

    Quotas are difficult to meet at times. Promotions are few in a store, not many higher positions to fill. Company values are decent, changed after the company was bought out, but would be fine for new employees with no comparison. As with any retail position, the Holidays are chaotic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think through changes thoroughly and do it once.

    Pros

    Great product, benefits, awesome co-workers, many great experiences.

    Cons

    Due to sale of company much downsizing and policy changes that has impacted the overall culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop looking at the dollar value and look to the value of the employees. The longevity of the employees should prove that they are what made the company what it is today. It was more than the dollars that made us stay for the length of time but the desire to build the brand. We really cared.
