    Pros

    - talented, motivated, invested, and fun people
    - work hard, play hard attitude
    - company events bring coworkers together over drinks
    - food and snacks in the office
    - good resume-builder name (Gilt Groupe)
    - travel perks

    Cons

    - poor interdepartmental communication
    - promotion and firing decisions made in a rash and incomprehensible manner
    - volatile revenue fluctuations, so lack of security
    - difficulty in maintaining values in the wake of sudden company growth
    - huge salary gap between senior and non-senior personnel that makes employees feel unappreciated for long hours and personal investment in the company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Slow down the hiring wave and think ahead before the next one, so that you don't have to retroactively make up for it by having layoffs. Rather support the people currently on staff and pay them more instead of hiring new people. That promotes loyalty and will keep costs and cost projections at a manageable and reliable level. Hiring three new people every week without knowing if you can support them financially and then having to let go of longtime, loyal employees kills morale and team spirit and introduces people into the mix who are not believers of the company values and mission.
