    I worked at Sole Technology full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Sole Tech is a small to mid sized privately owned footwear and apparel company based in Skateboarding roots. Good processes, good people. Great culture.

    Cons

    Sole Technology is located way out in the foothills. Despite good intentions, elements of the executive leadership may be somewhat disconnected from the end consumer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fortune favors the bold. Despite being privately held, Sole Tech is slow to move and react. Large public companies act more entrepreneurial.

    I worked at Sole Technology full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    There is a great group of people leading Sole Tech. The environment is positive and people enjoy working with one another. Culture is generally relaxed.

    Cons

    Market pressures have constrained budgets and there has been some challenges with compensation, internal growth, and marketing direction of brands.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Only choose leadership that really wants to be there, there were a lot of folks that were in a management role that phoned it in sometimes and prevented the company from moving foward.

    I have been working at Sole Technology full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I worked here for many years. I grew up with the people at Sole. I hear it's super corporate now but I had a wild time.

    Great culture!

    Cons

    Personal development and growth was non existant though. Very political and the organization had it's structural flaws.

    I would not trade that time for anything, but you work here for the name of the company, not for the reputable knowledge you would gain here.

    Other than Becky, HR was a gossip fest, which is never a good sign.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being the cool guy club. It get's old. I was told once by my boss that Piere didn't want me to speak to riders for work issues because I didn't have tats and he did not see me being the face of the project.

    If that is true or not it was a rough pill to swallow. HAHA

    In the real world that does not matter.

    Pros

    Easy going casual work enviorment. Friendly people. Passionate owner.

    Cons

    Company does not promote from within as much as they could. Lots of valuable employees hit a "dead end" and end up takinging off to other companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work with employees on plans for personal growth within the company.

    I worked at Sole Technology

    Pros

    The benefits were decent and being able to dress casually.

    Cons

    The management was poor, they were only concerned with made them looked good. Communication from management was horrible and the ability to professionally was not there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work as a team, instead of always working as five different department against each other.
