    I worked at Skechers U.S.A. full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There is very little upside in the retail division of this great company. In all honesty, the view is the only pro. And that's about it.

    Cons

    Where does one begin with Skechers retail. From top down the retail division is in a constant state of chaos. The president has absolutely no idea what is going on with his company, nor does he care to learn the business from the bottoms up. It's only because of the of the great product and marketing that the retail is a success. The worst thing about this company is that upper management and executives continue to put in place people that have no prior experience into executive roles (I.e director who had only been employed there a year before obtaining title and former assistant to the president of retail from a temp agency). Their lack of leadership and direction makes day to day task impossible to complete. If a person wants to grow their career here you need two things, be attractive and/or be in the "in crowd". The first part is self explanatory. The best way to get into the in crowd is to blame, back bite and throw people under the bus. No manager here takes responsibility for their team. Managers try to find scape goats all the pressure that's placed on them. The company culture is "you vs them", which creates a very hostile work environment. This also is the very same reason why upper management lacks tact and why it such an unprofessional environment. The pay is substantially below the industry standard. There's no set salary for any role it all depends on how much they like you (based on attractiveness and being in the in crowd). A regular analysts pay could outpace a managers depending on where they stand with the person giving them their salary. Yearly Reviews rarely happens and typically are far later than anniversary date, therefore your raise on the back burner. And at best you get cost of living increase, if that. There is more fingers being pointed than solutions being made. More than half your time is spent on why the problem occurred and not how it could be solved. Little recognition is passed off to those people that look past the politics and actually work on solutions. Upper management and executives do not like feedback and have the ability to quiet those people who dissent. HR stands back and watches and sometimes defend the very unprofessional behavior of the people running the business.

    Advice to Management

    Hire consultants!!! There is major procedural and organizational flaws across the board. Also putting people in the positions they have had experience with.

    Pros

    Quickly growing company, ambitious and faced paced environment. Perks. Nice discounts, team spirit.

    Cons

    Can be very hectic especially when understaffed. Still under developed corporate culture.

    Advice to Management

    Prefer not to give advice to management, as this was not my role, therefore not fair to speak on.

    Pros

    Can get some good commission

    Cons

    SO UNPROFESSIONAL!!!! This company is so cheap that they make you do big store projects during store hours instead of hiring specific people for operations and putting in extra payroll for overnight work. Micro- managing big time which is so stressful.

    Advice to Management

    Yeah, fire everybody and just replace them with monkeys

    Pros

    Can there be any pros with a review title like this?

    Cons

    DM and Regional play favorites to determine who to promote. Robert Greenberg told racist and sexist jokes at the meeting last June. They had girls dancing on poles (wearing very little clothing) at the "welcome" party for the meeting. Disgusting all around.
