I worked at Oakley full-time (less than an year)

Pros

When I interviewed, they told me to come in shorts and a t-shirt, and that's how everyone is dressed for work. Although the atmosphere is casual, the work is strictly professional. One of the most amazing places I've worked at.

Cons

I really didn't have any complaints while working there.

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

    Pros

    the people who work there are passionate about the brand. a mix of new employees and long time vets. depending on role there is a lot of flexibility, new health clinic free to employees, close tie to sport culture, in the past there was a lot of opportunity to discover what you liked and move up or around to get the best fit

    Cons

    the company now is confused, it does not value the team in the ways it once did. the new corporate culture fosters a fake concern for employees rather than the real close knit familial culture of the past, low pay, consistent firedrills, lack of leadership. lots of strong middle management but high level management is very weak, low salaries (although common for this industry), lack of communication, absolutley no career path, negative work environment, wasted resources, unclear expectations and lack of consistency

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    recognize the talent you have
    use strategy rather than firedrills to meet/exceed goals
    value teams
    look to teams to solve problems collaboratively
    bring back the culture and stop killing it
