    I have been working at K-Swiss full-time

    Pros

    The brands I work at are great. They have great culture and have a lot of potential. Unfortunately ever since K-SWISS bought us that has gone down hill.

    Cons

    Poor management of acquisition. Unfair expectations to stay with the company. Dishonesty. They don't care about the employees.

    Pros

    Big company but small feel. The brand is very well known and the company is great to work for.

    Cons

    No benefits offered for sales team

    Advice to Management

    None, the new management is great!


  6. An amazing rise followed by the disappoint truth that Management lost sight of it's true vision for success.

    I worked at K-Swiss full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The opportunity to work on design in every area of the business including, advertising, product photography art direction, packaging, branding and more.

    Cons

    No raises for 8 yrs in a row. No advancement. No growth.

    Advice to Management

    Design your way out of the problem. Get someone with a true business background but not from the footwear industry.
