    Tight knit group of people, centrally located office, ping pong tables and park area.

    Long work hours, with little job security, and a lot of company restructuring.

    I have been working at K-Swiss full-time

    Pros

    The brands I work at are great. They have great culture and have a lot of potential. Unfortunately ever since K-SWISS bought us that has gone down hill.

    Cons

    Poor management of acquisition. Unfair expectations to stay with the company. Dishonesty. They don't care about the employees.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Laid back atmosphere and friendly co-workers.

    Cons

    Forced to "clock-in", very little opportunity to move up the corporate ladder, no travel.

    Advice to Management

    Clear and open communication across all categories to have a unified vision of who and what K-Swiss is.

    I have been working at K-Swiss full-time

    Pros

    The ability to travel and work with some of the most prestigious retail buyers in the industry. Multiple brands under their portfolio, this gives you the option to change brands within the same company.

    Cons

    They are not willing to invest in their development, in a day and age when companies and increasing bodies, they are decreasing.

    Advice to Management

    Take the time to learn more about what is happening in the field, so that your product assortment can reflect relevant styles that are desired.
