Speck is a great place to work with many creative and passionate people. The business is challenging and is ever changing. The pace is fast as the company is constantly developing new products for new devices that are hitting the market.
Pays really well, for 11 months of the year had a great opinion...
SR Supply Chain Planner/System Implementation Mgr (Former Employee) – Palo Alto, CA – February 20, 2018
the 12th month there was a shocker! They were very knee jerk and didn't take into account the value add that I provided. Brought in someone younger because they could pay him less. I saved them a ton of money in Cost of Goods, Logistics, Efficient Material Planning, System Implementation and Corporate Alignment all to be laid off without a warning when they are rolling in money. Their cost of goods excluding logistics from Overseas was 14.90. I reduced it to 2.90 and set up a distribution center with resources including knowledgable staff, a new WMS and Inventory control system, MRP system, Alignment with customer service, finance, purchasing, planning, sales and product development. All to be cut loose at a moments notice. Cost me my family. I guess after the infrastructure was set up in a professional and productive way they could let me go and continue to wear their lame $400 pair of Diesel jeans and drink coffee all day long and look at themselves in the mirror. What a joke that was.
Great talent, creative product, but moving in the wrong direction
Operations (Former Employee) – Mountain View, CA – January 16, 2014
Company is not keeping up with the rest of the mobile accessories industry. Great talent at the individual contributor and mid-level ranks, but senior and executive management is holding this company back. Great work-life balance if you work in the right department. Fun co-workers, good pay and reasonable perks.
