    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.

    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!"

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

    Pros

    Skullcandy's work culture is nothing short of incredible. The people couldn't be more laid back and the culture couldn't be more fun. Cultural bonuses include half day Fridays in the summer where everyone literally stops working at noon to have a beer, eat food, and hang out! When people aren't dropping in the mini ramp or hitting up the basketball court in the office, the professional side of the environment has continued to support my personal desire to learn and develop new skills related to my profession. Skullcandy even paid for me to take classes from a third party to improve my software skills, simply because I expressed my interest to learn. Friends and family are constantly jealous when they find I get to work in such a progressive and exciting environment. Working here has been an incredible experience.

    Cons

    Cons are few and far between. Every company has growing pains along with shifts in management which Skullcandy has seen plenty of in the recent years. People tend to keep to themselves from time to time, but as soon as you introduce yourself you'll find everyone's super friendly!

    I have been working at Skullcandy full-time

    Pros

    This company is incredible. I wake up everyday stoked to come to work and thankful I work at Skullcandy. The teams here take ownership and pride in their work and everyone works so hard its contagious. On the flip side, we play hard too. The work life balance is unmatched to any company I have been a part of. There is so much opportunity for growth and senior management pours into their direct employees making it possible to advance in any role. The company is constantly innovating and thinking toward the future. The office space is incredible and a happy place to spend 40+ hours a week. Skullcandy is the place to be!

    Cons

    Good / healthy snacks would be a great addition.

    Pros

    Amazing co-workers
    Awesome office attitude
    Incredible work space
    Above average pay
    Very flexible schedule
    Great work life balance
    Excellent Managment

    Cons

    This is hard, because no place is perfect, but this is pretty damn close. So I guess I would say since it is a small company job security could be question.
