    I worked at DC Shoes full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great culture with fun events and casual atmosphere
    Felt like I had places inside the company I could progress to
    A strong sense of aesthetic and brand identity gave a great feeling of cohesion
    Fostered a strong sense of pride in well made products

    Cons

    Felt lost in the larger corporate structure of Quiksilver INC
    Lack of employee involvement from middle and upper management
    Since it was part of a larger corp that was heading towards bankruptcy funds were in short supply

    Advice to Management

    Separate from Quiksilver and become an independent company again
    Create a better system for people to interact with peers who work in higher positions to help improve the promotion process.
    Move people up instead of hiring from outside

    Pros

    Fun, casual, colleagues are awesome! I was really lucky to have very rad bosses and the opportunity to work with witty, chill, creative, caring folks.

    Cons

    Fun is great, but if you're searching for growth it can be difficult. With that said if you're a hard worker and do good work, being promoted isn't out of the question. Opportunities to be promoted depended more on the department and type of position.

    Advice to Management

    Offer more workshops internally so employees can continue to develop their skills.

    Pros

    The DC Shoes Brand is highly respected and they offer great incentives. If you live-to-work, a position at this organization would be a great opportunity for you.

    Cons

    They need to improve their training methods and hire additional help as their employees are over-worked. If you work-to-live & enjoy life, beware...

    Advice to Management

    If you are working 15+ hours of O.T. every week and so are your employees, you need help and you are eating away at the company's margin of profit by paying out gross over time.. Working that many hours every week is not a healthy life style and there will always be high employee turnover with dissatisfied employees.
