    Pros

    Relaxed environment, friendly co-workers, discount on clothes, generally a good company to work for.

    Cons

    The future of Quiksilver is very shaky. They are not doing that great financially. Too many senior management changes. There are layoffs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let the employees know well ahead in advance the direction of the company so they are not caught by surprise.

    I have been working at Quiksilver as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    The work environment is so much fun and everyone is super approachable and nice. People will be wearing sweatshirts to meetings and surf during their lunch breaks.

    Cons

    For an intern there was not always a ton to do, but it depends on your department

    Pros

    The people at the retail store are done of the greatest people I've ever worked with. They're all very genuine and want to make sure you grow. The discount is unbeatable, 75% off four things per month and pretty much 50% unlimited discount.

    Cons

    It's retail. You'll be working until midnight if you close, or as early as 5am if you work in merch.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on having more things in stock, I swear we could make another $2000 everyday if I didn't have to tell customers we were out of stock so many times.
