    Pros

    life lessons, great staff, keeping the stoke alive, ohana and aloha. Lasting teams. Training is great, sets you up for great success after you leave the company. Lasting friendships. Great discount

    Cons

    poor pay, lack of direction from corpo, not to mention all the new corpo people coming in from all kinds of other brands not even in the surf field. Yes they look great on paper, but once they step into the world of quik they see and feel how different it is and dont follow up on what they have been brought in for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    KNOW YOUR ROOTS, just because bob left should not mean we turn our backs on what he started, listen to the ohana and keep the wave strong. Utilize the well experienced managers and support managers in the stores. The ones who truly preach OHANA and take it with them and give it out everyday.

    Pros

    The company culture is laid back and friendly. Everyone gets work done but always keeps fun in mind.

    Cons

    There have been a tremendous amount of changes globally within the company that have caused an array of issues. People have taken on the workloads of what used to be multiple people, job descriptions are unclear because of the multiple roles, and confusion and disorganization is common.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If management were to have a more clear idea of what was on everyone's plate, they may have a better understanding of the work people are being asked to do. Ask your delegates about their workload. Do regular reviews.

    I worked at Quiksilver as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Relaxed environment, fun people, creative. The office is absolutely beautiful and people always seem to be having a blast. It is fast paced yet relaxed.

    Cons

    a little disorganized, hectic, there was a lot of down time where the employers didn't know what work to give the people working under them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider hiring interns only if you have legitimate work to give them, as it can be a little boring to sit and do nothing.
