    I have been working at Fossil full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    In my few years with Fossil I've moved up fairly quickly. With a few expections, senior management has an open door policy to all employees. We make amazing products and provide a wonderful shopping experience to our customers.

    Cons

    Salaries are sometimes lower then what youd expect. Not as many opportunities for advancement outside of Dallas. Should allow for more remote employees in metropolitan areas.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Fossil full-time

    Pros

    -Work/life balance was pretty good.
    -Used to make a great product.

    Cons

    -They outperform their goals consistently, however still find excuses to not pay bonuses.
    -Nepotism is the key to that promotion or job that you are more than qualified for.
    -Communication is sorely lacking on so many levels it's actually comical.
    -Management preaches consistency, however it is never practiced.
    -They also take their "Culture and Values" very seriously, however employ Senior Management that should be invested by their own HR department for their behavior.
    -If you ever meet the CEO, be prepared for your conversation to be about the numbers and not about anything on a personal level.

    Advice to Management

    The bottom line is always important in business, however it should never be the only line.
