I have been working at Fossil full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Good job security. Can be a very fun place to work. Fossil upper management seems to care about their employees. Casual dress. Decent discount on Fossil product. Some travel to other countries.

Cons

Speaking for the IT department, work is not assigned and prioritized properly and roughly 200% of what one person can do is constantly on everyone's plate to work on. Benefits are not the best: no adoption assistance, insurance is very much sub par compared to my previous companies, vacation time and sick time is combined into a PTO bucket. PTO maxed out at 4 weeks at 5 years of employment which means if you are sick for a few days, then you really only get 3 weeks vacation even for employees who have been here for 10, 15, 20 years and longer.

Advice to Management

Streamline work better. Hire the appropriate amount of people to meet the demand or slim down the work to match the potential output of the current employees. Look to improve benefits.

    Disconnected Leadership Already poor benefits which are being steadily reduced

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your people and promote within. There are many great contributors throughout the company. Not every major role needs to be filled from the outside.
