    I worked at Crocs (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good salary level, huge discounts on shoes and 50$ gift card every quater, informal attire in the office, fun events oraganized inside and outside the campus.

    Cons

    In the department I worked the level of knowledge of the system is very low, from the supervisors, who are useless, to the employees who are not so talended and willing to learn new things, also they are lazy. But the worst thing was the upper management unable to see the real problems, take decisions and make the effort to improve the bad processes that are in place. Lack of transparancy and honesty hurt me so much. I was also disgusted by the general environment of that department. No fun at all, discrimation, bad communication and a fishy atmosphere. In a huge company I felt completely alone with my work issues and my unbearable workload and nobody really listened to me and my suggestions on how to improve things, they just faked to listen to me and then they didn't help at all. The core values are just empty words repeated during town hall meetings. Such a sad and terrible experience.

    Advice to Management

    Well, if you were good managers you would see by yourself what is wrong in your company and how many stupid and useless people you keep employed. But maybe you are not, so the advice would be to just become better managers.

    Pros

    People - truly committed to the product and the future of the brand. Location - Boulder is not in the center of footwear companies so when you choose to work at Crocs, employees are committing their families and themselves to the success of the company.

    Cons

    Crocs is still a relatively young company which leads to a lot of change as the company is maturing and leaving their teenage years.

    I worked at Crocs full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Retail discounts, free shoe's, occasional beer party.

    Cons

    Stick and Carrot leadership style, over the top micro-management and back stabbing culture, most recent round of executive management are all buddies and if you are not "in-the-circle" your name is probably on a RIF list somewhere, all in order for them to meet their bonus plans in a few years.

    The company should never have undertaken the SAP project which considerably drained funds way beyond what was originally projected by a mere $60+ million, of course the companies new investors were pissed and leadership had to make up that miss.

    Terrible work ethics from leadership. Culture and morale was the epitome of living in fear day-in, day-out. The belief that skillsets out in Boston are better than those in the Denver area was BS, and the fact that members of the newly hired regime specifically stated they wanted to move to Boulder over staying in Boston shows that their thinking and justifications were flawed, they just didn't want to move. Hiring all their former colleagues and employees from Reebok to ensure they have smiling faces down below. A fact that did not go unnoticed as a "Cease and Desist" letter arrived threatening legal action for hiring any more.

    As an example of how messed up things were, the Boston leadership team got extremely bent out of shape when the corporate jet had maintenance issues and they couldn't be picked up to fly out for the Super Bowl game, where the company has a suite. How many employees lost their jobs in 2014 and 2015 to cover that?

    The leadership in Boston has no clue, what was once a great fun, high potential brand has become nothing more than their golden parachute and they scramble to make fill their pockets by stepping all over those that built the company.

    Advice to Management

    Get real, realize your best company asset is your employees, if your employees are not happy your customers will know. Why not tell the people how much expense is actually wasted as you fly people back and forth from Boston, and drive that new Subaru the company bought for you Gregg.

    The board should just be dissolved and Blackstone should take direct control, step out from behind the curtain and cease being the puppet masters.

    Pros

    Intellisource is the staffing agency that you work for within Crocs. They are fair and always on your side.

    Cons

    Clickish management. Certain people are absolutely unapproachable. They advance you into new positions and give no guidance. Sink or swim.

    Advice to Management

    Get a grip on the people that work for you. Your management skills are appalling. You should be ashamed of yourself.

    Friendly work environment and they make sure their employees are happy.

    I worked at Crocs (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Perks, special sales, many good people

    Cons

    Politics decide who stays or goes, not performance. I was given very good review right before they laid off me and tons of others. People who stayed were hand-picked by 2 people who kept their favs. And lot of backstabbing, so beware! No one is your friend, everyone just trying to hold on and will step over you if needed.

    Advice to Management

    when talent is being cast aside by politics, the fragile croc won't survive very long. Sinking ship.
