    I worked at Crocs (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Global brand with emotive product - love them or hate them, everyone knows them Reduction in priorities moving forward will help them focus on key markets

    Cons

    5 CEO's in 10 years has led to a non-stop strategy change in high staff turnover especially in Colorado

    Advice to Management

    Stay the path, hold true to cover values and what the brand stands for, then focus on flawless execution across the globe

    I worked at Crocs (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You are rewarded for good customer service, free shoes

    Cons

    Good customer service does not equal job security. In fact employees are let go at a whim, instead of trying to develop better employees. This is NOT the company with high marks from employees as I believed when I took their offer of employment.

    Advice to Management

    Give the management $ incentives instead of shoes, maybe you could get people who could communicate, show some leadership and make Crocs the company it claims to be.

    Pros

    Decent pay, free shoes, flexible schedule, great people

    Cons

    Not enough hours unless your okay with 25- 30 hours per week sometimes less. If it's a slow day they will send people home.

    Advice to Management

    none

    I have been working at Crocs full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Opportunity to work with different departments Weather

    Cons

    The company is just lame and average. I don't feel like I'm a part of something bigger. I think decisions are made just to get upper management more money. Some of the culture changes attempted are too forced and lame. The location doesn't really provide any product/work inspiration. People have been beat down here for too long. It's boring really. Even with the new management I can see it happening again.

    Advice to Management

    Crocs needs training programs and career path plans. Knowing that progression is on the horizon keeps people motivated. I really don't have a clue what I could do next here.

    I worked at Crocs full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Their total compensation package is nice, good benefits, workout space, etc. They do try very hard to appear like they care about their workforce. I got to know many great people at the ground level!

    Cons

    Crocs served me well for a few years, learning the footwear industry and getting to know some great people. However, this company is in desperate survival mode as they try everything to regain popularity. They are throwing money, high level talent, and expensive IT at the issue(s) hoping for success. However, the fundamental issues of the company are not going away. People are over the brand in general and they can’t come to terms that they are a dinosaur who shoes are not going to turn back into petroleum. I am sure there are a number of layoffs coming for this struggling company. Those who are leaving about being paid handsomely to do so, but that gravy train can’t last forever. Watch out current employees and those who are thinking of joining, keep your options open before jumping on board.

    Advice to Management

    The company loves to promote it’s favorites and leave most to swim with the sharks, begging for equal or fair pay. The company is very much divided into the “HAVES” and the “HAVE NOTs”, which is hard to watch. Start by making a career path for everyone and stop making them ask for equal pay.

    I worked at Crocs full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The Niwot location was convenient.

    Cons

    Very difficult to work in finance with accounting outsourced to India. There was no upward mobility except for a select few individuals. Mediocrity was tolerated. Discrimination towards women was very apparent. Constant layoffs. No concern for best practices.

    Advice to Management

    Bring back the accounting functions in-house. Listen in employee feedback. Make decisions not just focused on your bonuses.

    Pros

    Pay and benefits were nice. Lots of perks if you like Crocs shoes.

    Cons

    Horrible leadership with no vision and no follow-through. A lot of turnover and no succession planning

    Advice to Management

    Understand why so much talent is leaving - it's not because of the shoes you give away.

    I worked at Crocs full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Wonderful "technology" that has worldwide appeal A unique position in the market place Crazy good margins due to: Mold tech, cheap materials, lightweight, no packaging, easy supply chain (theoretically) Boulder, CO Location

    Cons

    Worst supply chain in the HISTORY of footwear (anyone in the "know" will acknowledge). McCarval KILLED the company with his mismanagement and psychopathic behavior. ZERO strategy for the last 3 years. Make that 4 since the new guys and gals will take 6 months to find the bathrooms. No demand generation investment (e.g. Advertising) since 2010

    Advice to Management

    Waiting well over a year for a guy who had a non compete from a slightly above average company was a HUGE mistake that put the company in "limbo" for 2+ years since it was dead in the water in 2013 with McCarvel...BOD knew this from Day #1 in 2013 since Ribatt was on the board...for a consumer brand, time is not their friend. Are the BOD purposely trying to "tank" the company to take it private? 100% of their decisions (if you can call them that) to date have been personal wealth motivated, so I fear that this is the direction. If so, why compensate the Executive Staff higher than any other footwear company, even Nike (google it, it's true) if you're going to fire a big chunk of the work force, close 100+ stores, not open any new ones, cut the line, not even bother to move the new Exec hires to where the company is located (wouldn't it be more economical to pay to move three people vs. move the whole company to Boston?) and essentially take the company to sub 1 Billion? Sad for the employees, shareholders and crocs consumers.

    Pros

    Many changes seem like they might be promising but there are still more changes coming. It is difficult to understand what the impact of all the changes will be.

    Cons

    There is very little communication about the future plans and how we will get there.

    Advice to Management

    Create clear and concise goals that everyone can rally around.
