    Former Employee - Manufacturing Intern in Foothill Ranch, CA

    Pros

    When I interviewed, they told me to come in shorts and a t-shirt, and that's how everyone is dressed for work. Although the atmosphere is casual, the work is strictly professional. One of the most amazing places I've worked at.

    Cons

    I really didn't have any complaints while working there.

    Pros

    The company actually cares about all of their employees, no matter their position. They extend the success of the company to all employees through bonuses, free clothing, and amazing promotional events.

    Cons

    Retail stores and the unfortunate, uncontrollable roller coaster that the economy puts them through. Holidays are tough too.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think quarterly meetings between employees is needed to share information and trade ideas on how to sell new products.

    lots of opportunity, with many different product categories including apparel, accessories, footwear, watches, electronics, sunglasses, along with many different positions from design, development, production, purchasing, planning, engineering, finance etc.

    the action sports culture can be a shock for anyone coming from a very professional conservative working environment.
