    I worked at Oakley (Less than a year)

    Pros

    When I was working at Oakley the process was very easy to learn. I also noticed that time went by fast. It was always easy to meet the quota since everything was so simple.

    Cons

    The cons were the employees at Oakley. They would gossip and say bad things about everybody. They would always be insulting each other and the people around them. Even the supervisors were the same.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management would be to tell the employees to just work and stop bringing other people down by insulting them.

    Pros

    Lifestyle, Iconic Brand, Brand Strength, Oakley Family, Heritage, Overall Dedication and Team Environment.

    Cons

    A lot of silos and egos. A bit of a stressful place to be nowadays with the massive restructure. Inconsistent direction from the top down (multiple areas) or even lack of direction for that matter.

    I have been working at Oakley part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    If I were asked how to describe Oakley, I would use words like; innovative, bold and energetic. I love that this company is never standing still, always trying to improve and explore new ways of doing things from top to bottom. Every day can be a new adventure, there is never dull moment.

    Cons

    With innovation and change, comes a lot of bumps in the road. A young company in the retail game, Oakley is always adapting and changing, and that can bring a lot of ups and downs in the workplace. Not a great place with those fearing the unknown.

    Advice to Management

    Empower your employees, even those at the bottom. Your company stimulates creative thinking, I think that you can find solutions to problems in the most overlooked places.

    I worked at Oakley part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly small staff. you all become a family afterwards. Getting an hour break was the best. And you get to learn different people from different countries whole travel to come to Times Square for Oakley. And lots of shifts available

    Cons

    Tourist can be a little rude but have to deal with it and gets a little crowded in Oakley in Times Square
