    Pros

    It was a good place to work, great benefits and laid back environment. The company offers a great discount for employees.

    Cons

    There was a significant lack of communication and no support from management. When they did try and support they would micromanage and not empower employees.

    Advice to Management

    If you aren't going to be good at communicating then at least empower your employees to make decisions instead of having them wait for a week to get a response.

    Pros

    Amazing development programs, fantastic benefits, great work life balance, fun environment, AWESOME discount. Oh and insane amount of product knowledge!

    Cons

    A little too laid back... Policies are subject to interpretation, field support is somewhat lacking.

    Advice to Management

    Oakley is a rebel brand, and that's what makes it awesome, and they should maintain that brand isintegrity, but policies should be black or white

    Pros

    They have cool products to sell, a laidback atmosphere, and good hours so you aren't working too late on the weekends

    Cons

    They have low wages and like to cut hours so people don't get benefits. It also seems as if there isn't any upward mobility

    Cons

    -No individual commission on sales (Poor team-based initiatives) -Limited opportunity in moving up the ranks -Corporate management workers are barely educated and therefore are constantly making errors in the business
