    WORST PLACE EVER

    Member Care Representative (Current Employee)
    Los Angeles, CA

    ProsIn this economy its good to have a job, and a discount at nordstrom doesn't hurt

    ConsThe sales platform, the constant stupidity and nothing ever working right. management is absolutely useless and the pay is an insult for all the work and pressure they put on you. Management is a joke, they're all immature, its like being in school again, they play favorites and don't value those that work hard.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire ADULTS! Immature children are in charge and it shows. Catty, gossiping, backstabbing, unprofessional, unable to properly communicate on an adult level. Most ridiculous place ever!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    An real review rather than a Hautelook social media post

    IT Worker (Current Employee)
    Los Angeles, CA

    ProsCasual dress code and formerly flexible hours

    ConsPay is 25%-30% below market. They claim to be a startup after 6 years and act like employees are a dime a dozen.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPointless meetings, 3 managers for every technically skilled worker, multiple solutions for every problem which is confusing, technical expertise and advice is pushed back or completely disregarded, the org chart has more chiefs than Indians, the IT Department hires from outside rather than promoting from within and the few who are promoted are promoted based on their ability to kiss ass rather than their technical expertise and accomplishments. They don't recognize true talent, or worse they are threatened by it and attempt to discount it.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    They internalize top level consultants to save money then throw them away when the job is done

    IT Staff (Current Employee)
    Los Angeles, CA

    ProsExciting, fast growing company with a lot of fun, energetic young people. Lots of opportunity for advancement. Central downtown location.

    ConsHR is heartless. Think Catbert the Evil Director of HR from Dilbert. Not really funny. They hire the best and the brightest to solve really tough problems, don't listen to them, then when the job is finally done, they lay them off and try to make it seem like their fault. Watch out!

    Advice to Senior ManagementStart caring about your people and the bottom line will improve not the other way around. Read some management books: People are your greatest asset,

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Growing pains ensure this company has a hard time retaining talent

    (Former Employee)
    Los Angeles, CA

    ProsFast growing company with more stability than other flash sale sites like it
    Free cupcakes
    Normal 9-6 schedule

    ConsSalaries are not competitive with industry standards
    Promotions are based on personal relationships rather than merit
    Performance review process a joke
    Extremely high turnover means that the longer term employees are the least competent
    Young workforce means that employees are often inmature and inappropriate, without intervention from management or HR
    Very few opportunities for growth or development
    Very little vacation time- in order to have a vacation many employees take unpaid days
    Next to no variety - you'll be working on the same projects day in and day out

    Advice to Senior ManagementBeef up your HR department to effectively recruit, retain and support higher quality talent

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
