Advice to ManagementAdvice

Manage store inventories better. Produce more fashion driven glasses alongside the sport performance. Stop doing crazy colors that dont sell at full price.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Foothill Ranch, CA

    I worked at Oakley full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Laid back, work hard, play hard mentality. Good discounts.

    Cons

    Not a "family" company. Face time is important, regardless of productivity (I think this was specific to certain depts). Can be very challenging to grow your career - it's a huge company but depending on your department, there may not be good career pathing or coaching.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realign so that good people have the opportunity to grow within the company. Make this a huge priority as it will save you money and you will retain your best people. Also change the company culture to reflect productivity and output as most important, and allow flexible hours - again this will help you retain good people. If they're taking advantage and not getting work done effectively, replace them.

    I have been working at Oakley full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    free clothes, great hours, contest/prizes

    Cons

    lack of promotion opportunities, micro management at it's best, high turnover, new policy changes on a weekly basis, no stability, this is not NIKE, just because you work at corp does not mean anything

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clarify that a lead is not a manager position, it's a glorified sales associate position. Hire associates with previous experience, not because they are randomly looking for summer employment...
