    I worked at Deckers Brands full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Casual work environment, many social activities and other perks. Discount on shoes is great. Cafe on campus is convenient. Onsite gym with instructor guided fitness classes.

    Cons

    Major restructuring of the organization in effort to boost profitability negatively impacted morale (obviously). Right next to the Goleta airport.

    Advice to Management

    Complete the build-out of the vacant building on campus

    Pros

    World class brand experience
    Omni channel growth brands - which are fun to work on and learn about
    Awesome opportunities to see behind the scenes of successful brands
    Good opportunities for learning (conferences, etc)
    Lots of really nice people

    Cons

    It's a boys club when it comes to raises, promotions, moving up the ladder. Women seem to be overlooked time and time again.
    Party / drinking culture - If you like to party - you're IN. If you're introverted - you're out.
    Competitive culture that pins people against each other and creates toxic environments.
    Zero work / life balance

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of managers who aren't supporting a progressive workplace for Women

    Pros

    The company ideals and philosophy that you get glimpses of is wonderful. The community feeling within the company is great.

    Cons

    The Call Center is currently without qualified leadership and favoritism is the ruling factor here. The experience or skills of the employees takes a back burner to befriending the management

    Advice to Management

    There are several highly experienced employees in the call center that have been with the company for years and know how to perform the functions of the job well. Deckers should promote from within for the management positions in the call center.
