    Pros

    Great environment working with a great group of people that work hard and love the brands. Working with the people here makes everything else worth it

    Cons

    Higher ups seem to be a little secretive about where the company is going either because they don't know or don't want to tell people. Could be because the company is doing so poorly

    Pros

    Fantastic group of people to work with; no micro-managers.

    Cons

    We got a little understaffed.

    Advice to Management

    Give Kelly Slater as much as he wants to come back.

    Pros

    Great coworkers, chill vibes, lots of fun

    Cons

    horrible pay (minimum wage), hours were recently cut

    Advice to Management

    management does all they can to keep workers motivated, at least at my store. They try to be the best examples and great friends.

    Pros

    The flexibility is nice and so are a lot of the employees in-store. It's a nice stepping stone.

    Cons

    Quiksilver is a very unorganized company with a high turn over rate in the corporate field. I would not recommend anyone to work here. Not a lot of growth opportunity. And benefits are more and more slim due to all of the cuts the company is making.

    Advice to Management

    Be good to your employees because that's the only way your stores will run.

    Pros

    Used to be a fun atmosphere to work at. Definitely a great place to start your career but not great long term.

    Cons

    Very top heavy management with poor communication and leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to step up and communicate better with mid and bottom level employees. It's hard to follow a leader you have never met before.

    Pros

    Aesthetically pleasing atmosphere, no micro managing, promotes from within, decent benefits

    Cons

    Salary isn't competitive with other companies in the same industry. The wheels to be hired or promoted from within move slowly

    Advice to Management

    Allow employees to cross train and if possible always promote from within. If salary can't be improved then make up for it by giving comp time off, corporate lunches, etc
