I have been working at Ariat full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Ariat is a great place to work. I have been there for almost 5 years, and I continue to be challenged and enjoy the work. People are treated fairly, and there is lots of growth, which makes it a more interesting place to work. Beth Cross has done an amazing job of leading the company and developing the company vision. Overall, there is solid leadership at the top. Good financial controls, strong product and marketing leadership, and operations as well. The Company lets people bring their dogs to work, which adds a friendly touch to the atmosphere. There is a blend of both new and old-time employees, which is nice. The Company seems to really care about its employees and is doing more in the way of training and leadership development than it used to. It is also renovating its building, creating an even better environment for the employees.

Cons

With growth comes of course difficulties with prioritization and employee bandwidth, but I would take growth and new challenges any day over downsizing, cost cutting, and a job that never changes.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Upper management seems to do a pretty good job of communication, but you can never overcommunicate to your employees, so keep the regular updates coming.

    Pros

    Profitable, smart, growing company
    Strives to be a great place to work
    Fun product - footwear and denim
    Good benefits and opportunity for yearly bonus
    Bring your dog to work;-)
    Easy and free parking
    Lots of new employees bring new energy

    Cons

    Opportunistic - can't be everything to everyone
    No clear path for growth, especially for Managers and Directors
    Lacks process for decision making
    Not enough collaboration among departments
    Needs to invest in systems, too many manual processes - often feels like you are working in the 80's
    Corporate office could use a makeover
    Culture welcomes opinion, however too many opinions can be exhausting especially when they are negative

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't lose your innovation and technology roots. It's a huge advantage. Look for ways to have an open and collaborative environment. Have a vision for employees and a path for promotion or you will lose good people in the end.
