    I worked at Skechers U.S.A.

    Pros

    Nice Building and cafeteria. Not necessarily management but some very cool people for sure.

    Cons

    The ratings here speak for themselves. Management is run by family or people connected to the family including people who are in personal relationships. Consequently they are not the most competent and tend to hire a bunch of yes men. I worked in the design dept and the designer I worked under was typical of this type of environment slightly under qualified but there because she "got along to get along" and took professional input as a challenge. Not a place for talented professionals who want to actually do good work and contribute best practices as opposed to saying
     yes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire people who can do great work. Not people who will appease you at the expense of the business

    I have been working at Skechers U.S.A.

    Pros

    The pay was alright and I worked for a couple of really great people....until they were fired! I enjoyed the product.

    Cons

    Horrbile and inconsistent communication from the corporate level to the stores was very frustrating on a daily basis! I had 5 district manager and 4 regional managers in 5 years. This should tell the executive team something but doubt they would even care! Compaints to HR were pointless. No recognition for hard work and plenty of negativity from middle management and up. They make mountains out of mole hills!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees better!! I have seen consistent comments about this topic on this board. I don't think it will ever change because the executive team are so smug and clueless when it comes to managing people! Remember, it is your PEPOLE that drive you business. Treat them with kindness and respect especially if they have proven to be hard working and dedicated employees.
