    Pros

    Culture, people, work ethic, positive attitudes, and discounts

    Cons

    They need better supply chain management. The replenishment of the stock killed the stores ability to make money. They tended to hire the person with more years experience instead of the best person for the job. Did not seem education or other relevant experience mattered.

    Advice to Management

    Hire higher level business people that are more well rounded. Implement an on demand replenishment system that other successful retailers have

    Pros

    Laid back environment, but still professional. They definitely embrace a work family mentality. The core retail people genuinely care about the company and people.

    Cons

    Retail division is struggling right now. Lots of changes and store closures over the past couple years.

    I worked at Quiksilver (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I was there 9 years and it was awesome for most of the time. Great benefits and perks. Casual atmosphere and fun people to work with. The projects were interesting.

    Cons

    Towards the end lay offs became regular and all the wrong decisions were being made by management. This led to the demise of the USA HQ.

    Advice to Management

    Get someone that is technically savvy to help in technical decision making.

    Pros

    -Chill Vibes
    -Friendly people
    -Good work culture
    -There was an overall sense of support from upper management.

    Cons

    I really liked the company, I just think advancing in the company was quit difficult. There was not a sense of job security, as the company went through quite a hard time when I worked.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the good vibes going, I just wish there was more opportunities in the work area. This company needs to rebound, but I have great hope.

    I worked at Quiksilver part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I didn't feel there were any pros to working here. Maybe good for a first job to get some experience.

    Cons

    Had to act super fake and pay was so incredibly low. Manager was the worst. Definitely not valued as an employee.
