    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Fossil full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Creative work environment
    A large portfolio of brands
    Great company culture
    The CEO is an amazing leader with a friendly positive attitude
    A very large and ever growing company with talented employees
    Corp Headquarters in Dallas, Texas - Dallas is a great city to live in

    Cons

    If you start at an entry level position, 90% of the time you will still be at an entry level position within the following 3-5 years. With today's fast market and breadth of fresh, creative minds - one would think a company striving to become distinctive would tap into to the minds of these amazingly talented designers and give them the opportunity to shine! I have seen too many designers leave the company because they either felt their careers were moving too slow or not moving at all.

    Advice to Management

    There needs to more focus on the development and growth of young designers. It's very difficult to move up if you start as an entry level designer. A lot of creative, fresh talent is overlooked and unacknowledged.
