Cons

Senior management is dominated by politicians. This results in rash, abrupt, often reckless changes in direction and priorities. Management makes too many decisions based on political gain and not based on what is right for the company long-term. People with no budget authority or accountability can suddenly spearhead massive, expensive projects that are completely unnecessary based solely on their political backing. Management can be very abusive at times, yelling and demeaning employees in public. At other times, management will provide absolutely no guidance at all on your performance until your annual review and you're told it was all done incorrectly. Zero room for upward movement, despite the promises made when you were recruited or hired.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- Learn that you're greatest resource is your people. If you don't treat your talent well someone else will.
- Stop the politics. Senior management needs to be held accountable for their antics
- Implement 360 reviews, anonymous to the manager, reviewed by the next level manager. Let your people tell you what they really think of you.
- Stop running all of the smart people out of the company because you are threatened by them.
- Provide your employees a path for ambition and creativity.
- Hire only the senior management that you can't find internally.

    Pros

    Great discount on product, new workout facility and beautiful corporate offices. Fantastic catered lunches brought in daily, beautiful campus location.

    Cons

    Crocs is a colorful, fun brand but the corporate offices are anything but that. Within the last two years, its become an environment built on fear and paranoia stemming from the executive offices. Executive leadership has the philosophy of "not playing nice" which has resonated throughout the entire organization. Employees have stopped trusting in each other and it turn started only looking out for themselves. Its a political minefield every day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop turning the other way when good, ethical, strong leaders leave Crocs and determine what is going on in the executive offices. You've got a whole campus of unhappy drones who are subjected to abuses everyday- that's not the way to live life! Come on- you have a chance to change things!!
