    Pros

    Great view, nice location/facilities

    Cons

    Director is verbally abusive to her employees while exhibiting no motivation or work ethic herself, which was ignored by her boss and HR. Most people (including upper management) are there to collect a paycheck and do not care about doing a good job or growing professionally. Most employees put in minimal effort during the day and then try to milk the overtime, so if you manage your time well you end up having to stay late finishing other people's work, essentially rewarding laziness. Absolutely no work ethic, integrity or interest in retail among employees and management. Don't work here if you are a serious professional interested in moving up in your career.

    Advice to Management

    Introduce a way for employees to ANONYMOUSLY evaluate their work environment(managers/division of work/co-workers). If HR is incapable of this, bring in consultants. The lack of professionalism is truly appalling. The company loses money on missed sales due to negligence of employees who have been with the company for years (even though they put little to no effort into their jobs). People who are not performing need to be moved out. Stop using "the cost of training" as an excuse to let people who don't care about the quality of their work to stay in the same position year after year.

    Pros

    Meet lots of new future screwed over people, other than that there really isn't any pros to this company to boast about.

    Cons

    Corporate always threatening your job, everyday is worked as an at will employee and they make sure to constantly remind you of that fact.

    Advice to Management

    You don't know everything, and people aren't just numbers

    I worked at Skechers U.S.A. (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Beautiful facilities, on-site cafe, ocean views from some locations, on-site fitness classes, free Los Angeles marathon entrance fee, great discounts on merchandise.

    Cons

    Don't let the perks fool you, the work environment can be toxic. There was no growth opportunity in my department and a Catch-22 situation if I wanted to transfer departments. If you're too good at your job, your manager won't let you leave. If your manager doesn't like you, they won't recommend you for another position. The systems are so old and out of date, they're impossible to use and understand. The company rewards loyalty so long time employees get promoted, even when they're not qualified to do the work. Some people are incredibly over-worked, others barely work 6 hours a day.

    Advice to Management

    Standardize the review process. Clearly outline what performance guidelines are for promotions and raises. Don't leave everything up to a single manager.

    Pros

    Good pay, low turn-over, promote within.

    Cons

    I couldn't put up with a psychopath store manager at the outlet. He talks to all the other managers like he's disciplining his kids. He respects no one and act like he's everything, completely pretentious, I've never worked with anyone like that before. He wants to be in control in everything, I meant EVERYTHING! For example, he would tell you how you should share a DRY alcohol wipe to clean 4 walkies. He announces people's names over the walkies that so and so is hurting the store because he/she is not selling enough socks. Talking about the employees there, some of them are ghetto, disrespectful, and completely stupid. Cashiers are extremely rude and pushy. Some of the managers does nothing, they just show up at work, stand there and get paid. He came ponding on the door when I went to the bathroom during my last day. I was in there for literally 2 minutes. It was a extremely tired job, but he was the reason I quit.

    Advice to Management

    Respect people and appreciate your employees, everyone has strengths and weakness, even machines.
