I worked at Billabong full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Health, 401, and other benefits are very good. Working in the action sports industry is enjoyable (though not here), and you are able to wear great clothing.

Cons

The company has far too many egos and they get in the way of prospering. Upper management is arrogant and does not truly understand how to fix the mistakes they've made. They have lost a bunch of very strong people, either laid off or quit, when the upper management needs to be changed so the company can use it's employee's creative talents to succeed. As long as the top management is there the company will not grow. There have been very few and if so, small raises for the past 4 years. You can get promoted but not get a raise.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Worry about creating a better work environment where your employees can create fresh and compelling new products instead of limiting their abilities. Don't let go of talent for the sake of lower inexperienced employees. Talent drives the business forward, inexperience repeats the same mistakes that are being made.
