    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

    Pros

    It used to be a great place to work with likeminded people who shared a stoke for the industry.

    Cons

    The stock market crashed, then they accidentally hired Andy Moonie to fist... err, "FIX" the company. He laid off almost 800 employees.

    Advice to Management

    No advice- everyone I worked with or for is gone now

    Pros

    Great company to learn fundamentals of retail. One learns that to strive as a unit one can not depend on a sole individual. Everything must be done accordingly as a team from associates to management. Store discount is great, the people that walk in from all over the world and to get to hear their stories is inspirational, and the coworkers are all great and are like a family or what we like to call Ohana.

    Cons

    Constant Micro-management to a certain extent, but is done evidently to strive as a store. Problems are handled very slowly.

    Advice to Management

    Have some emotional intelligence everything is not only about the store. Theres only so much an employees can do, stop focusing on the negatives all the time and acknowledge the positives when possible. Employees highly appeciate it and it drives one to continue working hard.
