    I worked at Skullcandy full-time

    Pros

    The team at Skullcandy is truly remarkable, and I had the best time every day working with such amazing individuals. Everyone is a go-getter, and knows how to get the job done, but also have a great time doing it - not to mention, lunch time bike rides and hikes are pretty regular and so fun :)

    Cons

    I don't have any cons.

    High expectations of what and when tasks need to be completed. People willing to work with you to understand the processes to be as efficient as possible.

    Have to find your own work sometimes.

    Pros

    -beautiful building
    -good location...right by the mountains
    -product has improved

    Cons

    -culture...the culture has changed so much and there really is no culture anymore. It feels contrived and forced now.
    -drama/gossip...there's a lot of unnecessary drama at Skullcandy that has created a toxic environment
    -growth...there are not a lot of growth opportunities or growth paths. People leave and you just have to take on more work without a pay raise or title change.
    -leadership and upper management

    Advice to Management

    Create growth paths for your employees and don't just say it'll happen and it never does. Also, I wanted to learn more and be mentored and it was hard to find leaders that cared.

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

    Pros

    Collaborative work environment, flexible schedule, fair compensation & solid benefits package, interesting challenges, room to grow, ability to influence decisions and make truly great products, culture of making employees feel appreciated and rewarded for achieving goals

    Cons

    Sometimes working with teams in other time zones can require a lot of travel or calls at odd hours.

    I have been working at Skullcandy full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The atmosphere here is super laid back. Everyone is friendly and smiling, and everyone is really committed to creating amazing products and a great brand. Lots of people who work here have been here for 4 or 5 years or more, which is a good indicator of great company culture, and lots of opportunities for growth.

    I never feel awkward, like I don't know how to spend my time, nor do I feel overworked or micro-managed. Also, there is a skateboard ramp in the lobby, and a pool table, and a basketball court, and I have never been looked at sideways for taking a break to stretch my legs or pass some time.

    Skullcandy is a small company, so I interact with people from a variety of perspectives and professional backgrounds, which makes for a really cross-functional and collaborative work environment.

    Cons

    Sometimes I feel like I have too much freedom. Like I could literally take 3 weeks and when I got back everyone would be like, "How was your trip! I'm sure its better than sitting meetings and drinking subpar coffee!"

    Pros

    Growing company, with a strong culture that supports each individual employee

    Cons

    With the consistent changes in product technology, speed to market is always a priority to deliver results and stay ahead of the competition. This is a motivator for some employees, and a stress point for others.

    I have been working at Skullcandy full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I love working at Skullcandy. We have talented people who work extremely hard. I sincerely like my coworkers and enjoy the low key but productive vibe in the office. We have great work life balance and passion to beat the bigger companies.

    Cons

    We run lean so you need to be willing to do what needs to be done. Saying, "That's not my job," is not an option here. The market also shifts quickly so you must be okay working through change.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing but don't be afraid to hold people that aren't performing accountable.

    Pros

    You can recommend any idea and it will be considered. You can really change processes and make a difference at any level within the company. The culture is fun and active, and you are able to work with great employees who work hard and play hard.

    Cons

    Fast pace and headcount is lean so you have to move fast and stay efficient!!
