I have been working at Quiksilver

Pros

Quiksilver is a great company to work for. Many have left for other opportunities but usually end up coming back, as I did. The people and the work environment are tough to beat.

Cons

Sometimes the corporate leaders make you feel a little powerless. There has also been much shuffling in the retail division of corporate and the turnover rate seems to be high.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep the company's roots strong, because that's what makes people love working for Quiksilver. Make smarted investment choices and listen to the retail employees. They have some pretty good ideas.

    Amazing group of people that don't always have the best business sense.

    I have been working at Quiksilver

    Pros

    -Passionate and exciting group of people
    -Friendly management that cares about the team
    -Amazing products
    -Excellent discount on merchandise
    -A sense of pride and solidarity throughout entire company

    Cons

    -Many of the upper business decisions made are re-active, rather than being proactive.
    -Constant attempts to break into new markets rather than excelling and the ones we currently have
    -People at home office are stretched so thin that they are often set up for failure
    -There are many people at home office who are letting the stores and the entire company down and who answer to no one

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure that you are doing a better job communicating with the stores and understanding their struggles and successes. Don't dictate that policy xyz is going to be a success when any person on the front lines can tell you that won't work.

    A typical retail job with a somewhat interesting company.

    I have been working at Quiksilver

    Pros

    Usually a fun group of people to work with. Fairly laid back but respectable environment. Management was flexible with scheduling.

    Cons

    Usually a little to lax in the employee responsibility department. It is a retail job, you are going to work with some people who do not want to interact with customers at all.
