    I have been working at Fox Head full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Generous benefits, nice environment, fun group to work with

    Cons

    No opportunities to advance, extremely poor communication from all levels. Always short-handed so staff is overworked. Constant pressure to perform though work loads are heavy. Lots of bickering among managers. Some very unprofessional people in charge.

    Advice to Management

    People continue to leave in droves. Take note of this and get rid of the bad managers to keep the few quality people you still have on board.

    Pros

    New ownership, new leadership and a clear direction, combined with a world class and world recognized brand. It's a great energy and great people, after a few bumpy years this company is fired up.

    Cons

    Irvine is very nice but expensive. The company is short-handed -- lots of openings that we can't fill fast enough.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the momentum and clarity of purpose, continue to improve communication and planning.

    I worked at Fox Head full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Casual environment, incredible modern office space, some attempt at cultivating a fun and exciting atmosphere via company-wide activities.

    Cons

    In a constant state of flux, at least over the past few years. Incredible amount of changes, with a lot of poor communication to the employees about them. A company with a lot of potential and a huge market that is just throwing it down the drain at the moment. Chaotic, poor management, and a huge disconnect between departments. Low pay and low rewards. At least 50% or more of the people I worked with there have already moved on.

    Advice to Management

    Decide who the management is, and stick to it. Beyond that, just communication and transparency- Severely lacking.

    I worked at Fox Head full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Free Coffee. Matching 401K.

    Cons

    Poor leadership. Poor communication. Poor direction. Poor motivation. I have never seen a company with this strong of an outside brand presence be so poorly run from the inside. The decision makers don't listen and therefore almost every employee who has an opinion other than that of the owner becomes alienated.

    Advice to Management

    Less ego, more ears.
