    I have been working at Quiksilver full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It's like family here! Most people are very committed to their jobs because people are interested in what the brands represent.

    Cons

    Not very many... pay, perhaps? But it is completely understandable as the company is still recovering from bankruptcy. More vacation would also be nice!

    I worked at Quiksilver full-time

    Pros

    Very casual work environment. Everyone works really well together. Finance was one of the few departments that made it feel "family" like.

    Cons

    Corporate mentality. Sometimes you feel like a number and it's hard to shine when you have to show your work for more than 3% and that's if they will give it (currently unsure due to bankruptcy)

    Advice to Management

    Communicate. Communication is key and needed across all departments to be in the know of the company.


  4. "Awesome company to work for"

    I worked at Quiksilver as an intern

    Pros

    I interned here for 2 summers and loved the company culture and people I worked with. I had the opportunity to gain experience in various departments and enjoyed the laid back work environment. Company events were epic too!

    Cons

    It was unfortunate when Quik had to file for Chapter 11, but they're making a comeback which I'm stoked about! Other than being unpaid, can't think of any cons, I really enjoyed my internships and gained valuable knowledge while interning here.
