I worked at Speck as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

Young growing company, Palo Alto is beautiful, provide free transportation to work (train/bus/subway passes are paid for) lots of opportunity to get things on the shelves

Cons

Intern job is alot of colorways and color approving, pattern making, lots and lots of illustrator and emailing factories.

Expensive city

can be lots of monotonous work at times for interns, but it's an interesting fast paced industry to check out.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Change the status quo and go back to soft goods! Your bags were some of the most innovative stuff, and you should pursue it again

    Pros

    Great Startup atmosphere, the people working here are talented, committed and all around great people. This company embarces those who other companies would consider "weird", but those are the truly creative and driven people who make this company as great as it is.

    Cons

    While the company has a startup mentaility culture, it also has a startup mentality process wise and sometimes things are not clearly defined for new hires. It takes a while to get used to it. Plus parking is a hassle.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing, focusing on growth without forgetting the employees that make your company so great.
