    Pros

    People are mostly nice. Casual atmosphere, which can be good. They buy bagels on the first friday of the month...

    Cons

    Work is very assembly line-ish and isolating, very little room for creativity. Higher up management is unapproachable, although the immediate supervisors are okay. Overall, a stark, sparse environment with one goal: hitting the bottom line. Oh, and the pay is substandard.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees more. Find a way to streamline the work they do. Stop gossiping in the kitchen. And stop having so many unnecessary meetings.

    Pros

    having a job, benefits and being able to work from home. Met some good people along the way as well.

    Cons

    There is always something wrong or broken, hugely disorganized, consistently taking on more than they can chew, and "management" is comical at best. Pay is extremely low as well.

    Advice to Management

    Hire based on merit, not who brown noses, stop being cliquish and catty, grow up, and stop condescending people. Not everyone is an idiot that can't read.

    Pros

    DTLA Office, ability to Work from Home, Employee Discount, Great people. I appreciate how HauteLook creates social events, and do little things such as bagel Friday.

    Cons

    Pay is below standard, constant turnover, low morale, benefits are standard, loss of identity ever since merging with nordstrom.

    Advice to Management

    Create more incentive to create better morale. There's not much to look forward to on a daily basis, and hard work goes unappreciated.
