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

    Pros

    Free shoes every so often and good discount

    Cons

    Typical corporate work environment. Awful hours. Management likes things a certain way, but they cannot even perform it right themselves. Overall management training should be increased as this is something they are lacking in. They do not hire within.

    Reaching out to HR about an issue will get you nothing in return. Deckers does not value their employees as much as they value their profit.

    Customer services should be stressed as a priority. See many employees who would rather ignore customers than help. Should be better perks for meeting sales goals.

    Advice to Management

    Keep employees happy

    I have been working at Deckers Brands full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Culture, Work / Life Balance, Great Brands, Nice People, lots of room for improvements. Feels like a small company but it really isn't.

    Cons

    Less than dynamic, lots of unnecessary, unneeded, and subjective cynicism from veteran employees, slow to make improvements, seems systems are weak and a point of excuse for not being able to do more.

    Advice to Management

    One E - Comm Web - Site for All Brands on one and focus to building Outlet Style stores tied directly to e - comm (like amazon is doing)

    Horrible place to work!

    Director does not know what she is doing. Employees act as if they're in high school. Drama drama drama!

    Pros

    The VP for Integrated Planning is amazing.

    Cons

    too many projects with not enough bandwidth to complete it well

    Advice to Management

    We need to feed from the bottom, and allow employees to move up instead of continually reaching outside of the organization for another director.

    Pros

    Executives have good intentions and are trying to maintain a fun culture while becoming more "corporate". Fun quarterly all hands events. Great new facility.

    Cons

    Lots of turnover recently has caused the great culture to be lost a bit. Deckers has a habit of making everything overly complex.

    Advice to Management

    Keep things simple. Fight hard to keep/restore the culture that served the company so well.

    I worked at Deckers Brands (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Deckers has a great culture and a friendly work environment. There is a lot of opportunity to socialize with other coworkers and the location is amazing

    Cons

    I did not feel like there was a lot of opportunity to grow vertically within the corporation, and there was either a lot of work to do, or it was relatively slow, and no in between.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on holding people accountable for their work and helping people work better within group settings
