    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

    This is easily one of the best places to work in the city. The company culture is fun, creative and inspires innovation. There are lots of opportunities here to advance and many intelligent and dedicated coworkers to work alongside.

    Cons

    More resources needed! It always feels like you are doing more than a single person's job while working here.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people. Structure a more formal review process.

    Pros

    Great culture, and people, the company has a great life/work balance. Everyone is very open and approachable. I did not feel micro-managed and was able to complete projects how I felt best.

    Cons

    No organized intern program, therefore my responsibilities and what was expected of me was a bit vague. Did not learn as much as I expected.

    Advice to Management

    Create a more organized Intern Program

    Pros

    Decent pay, plenty of opportunity as they appear to mostly hire from within when they can. All my bosses were very supportive and laid back enough to leave you mostly alone as long as you were meeting expectations.

    Great benefits, gym, quarterly parties with food and beer. Holiday party was always pretty amazing.

    Cons

    I loved working here, no real cons that aren't in every workplace.

    Pros

    Casual dress, product discounts, onsite cafe and gym - overall, it is a pleasant place to be.

    Cons

    Virtually no opportunity for advancement - this is true for almost every department and level
    Senior Management is pretty checked out
    Compensation is not competitive
    They walk a lot of people out the door with no notice

    Advice to Management

    Senior management needs to be more plugged into what is going on. Pay for performance and promote more from within.
