    I worked at Fossil full-time (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.

    Former Employee - Store Manager

    I worked at Fossil full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Nice discount on watches(all the brands the compnay makes), and the clothing.

    Cons

    As management you could be in the store for longs periods of time by yourself. Pay rate offfered to associates is very low compared to other companies. While I was there they offered no sales, and increased the prices of products making it hard for some loyal customers to be able to purchase the new products.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bridge the gap between the home office and stores. Things were not always communicated down to the store level correctly. For the store teams to succeed they need to know the information they are getting is correct, and consistant.
