Pros

Monthly bonus, tons of PTO and sick time.

Cons

As a manager you are required to use your personal cell phone for all work calls. You MUST answer your phone at all times. You are treated like a slave from upper manager and they make you feel worthless. The DM's never answer their phones, emails or offer help. When they visit they scream at you and tell you everything you are doing wrong and never offer to assist in any way. The staff is paid very low and you are required to meet unattainable goals. There is no room for advancement in the company, once you become an MIT you will be stuck in that position till you leave. There are currently no General Managers in my area and the highest level of management are two MIT's both who have been told they are not fit to have the title store manager because the company wont pay. The DM only looks out for what will make the DM bonus and will treat you like a slave.

Advice to Management

Clean house and start fresh.

    Pros

    The companies product is revolutionary and dynamic. Crocs Retail was somewhat laid back until it went corporate 2 years ago. They are now blitzing the retail market with store fronts and there is a lot of potential for growth within. Must be willing to relocate though.

    Cons

    Unfortunately Crocs does not always promote from within. Low pay and high expectations for their middle management is not uncommon. Although the product is revolutionary the business plan and marketing is not. The shoe has a cult following and can easily sell itself. The company banks on this and cuts corners with marketing and visuals which in the end cheapens the product and it's public appearance.

    Advice to Management

    Out of touch with sales associates and inventory issues. Out of touch with what actually happens on the store front level. Despite marketing surveys still out of touch with general demographic and purpose of product.


  2. Step aside and pull your bags of money out of the way.

    Pros

    Young work force, fun environment. The systems architecture lends itself to good data analysis and financial modeling, but management does not have the aptitude for advanced analytics.

    Cons

    Management has no experience, grew too big too fast. The casual environment has bled into the attitudes held by management and I would guess that there are many legal battles for harassment of many different forms. The hand-shake form of executive management limits the ability for finance to be an influential business partner and add real value to the shareholders.

    Advice to Management

    As the organization grows you need to realize that you may have something worth more that you can manage, and to benefit the many rather that the few, you should step aside and let individuals with adequate experience run the ship.
