    I worked at Fossil full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Strong company, Great retail products, Good Employee Benefits, Casual Fun Environment

    Cons

    Poor management direction, poor top-down communication, unqualified middle management, little to no opportunities for advancement, Intense workload for little pay, high turnover

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't just make appearances, but rather get to know your employees. Stop making inside jokes with just a handful of your choice employees. Recognize the need for middle management leadership training. Hire leaders into management roles, rather than good performers. Pay your employees their worth.

    I have been working at Fossil

    Pros

    Relaxed environment with really nice people. Employees dress well. Not stressful. Gym, great food, and great employee discount. Good for anyone who enjoy designing in-house and does not want a stressful job.

    Cons

    There are some slow days, and I get bored easily. Graphic design interns are sometimes given really pointless design jobs that has no meaning. It doesn't really allow you to expand your design skills, unless maybe you're a web design intern and get to learn how to use Fireworks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The person I work directly for is passive aggressive. But by me saying that, it doesn't mean that all of those who work in management is so.
