    Internship Review

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat work environment where everyone is motivated and has fun, while also getting work done. They treated me very well, especially given I was only an intern. Great ideas at the company.

    ConsSome of the employees tend to drink their own koolaid, but don't back it up with their ideas. Because it's such a big company, it can be a bit bureaucratic at times.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the fun programming because employees really appreciate it.

    Amazing workplace - fun, active, culture. Low pay and too much politics

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Foothill Ranch, CA

    ProsIncredible, fun, positive work environment. Open, free, and encouragement to live the active lifestyle.

    ConsPay is terribly low (they'll tell you it's lower because you get to 'experience the culture') - be sure to negotiate on your way in. Turnover is very high. Politics are frustrating. Lack of structure is fun, but makes for many lazy, unaccountable colleagues - be prepared to do the jobs of others.

    Advice to Senior ManagementScratch the "career development sessions" and actually meet with your 4, 5, and 6 year employees one-on-one to plan their careers. These are the committed ones who want to stay. The people who work here are passionate, but most leave due to management/HR's lack of concern for employee's growth and fair compensation (raises, pay).

    Fun!!!

    Sales Associate (Current Employee)

    ProsI love the allotment that they give their employees on clothes!! It's a fun environment to be in. There is never a dull moment working for Oakley. I love that Oakley strives to let every individual be who they are.

    ConsI feel that Oakley are deceptive about how bonuses work when you are interviewing for the job. Training seems to be rush and your basically thrown out their to learn the rest for yourself.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCome up with a better way train staff on their positions.
