    Pros

    Deckers is a young atmosphere with lots of active people and the company provides employees with great benefits. The location is amazing and the new campus provides great opportunity to collaborate with all brands. The company has great values and it's a joy to work with most people every day.

    Cons

    Deckers does not seem to value it's employees as much as they say. There is little to no room for advancement. They hire mainly on who you know, not necessarily the most qualified person. The pay is not enough to live in Santa Barbara. Some of the team leaders seem to be wandering with no direction. Also some teams run very lean leading to working 50+ hour weeks and no work/life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Hire positions that will help the operations side of each brand succeed and to give employees a work/life balance. Have better training programs set up for new employees. Follow through on grooming employees to become managers.

    Pros

    Very strong corporate culture and benefits.

    Cons

    Very fast-paced environment with minimal resources and talent issues across organization. A lot of legacy employees that have outgrown their positions.

    Advice to Management

    Employees want to see you make the tough decisions. Important that consistency exists at all levels.

    Pros

    Family atmosphere, everyone cares about everyone else like a family.

    Cons

    It's tough to move around. Once you are someplace, you get put into a certain "role". If you're okay with that, then it's great.

    Pros

    Great brands, smart people, eye towards future?

    Cons

    Uneven treatments and expectations depending upon which brand or division you work for. Salaries not competitive for such large performance expectations.

    Advice to Management

    Take a good hard look at culture, quality and footprints of decisions, promote the right people and stop promoting the wrong ones, raise salaries to keep talent.

    I worked at Deckers Brands

    Pros

    When you work at Deckers, you receive discounts on all the brands of shoes that they sell. They also had great company events and chair massages were offered once a week.

    Cons

    It is a big company, so it does take a while to get to know everyone. Communication in my department was lacking.

    Advice to Management

    Great company, but it seems that certain departments need more help upholding the company values.

    Cons

    Very high cost of living, the building is cramped and full of people but they're working on getting more space
