    I have been working at Shoebuy.com full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    As I approach my one year anniversary at Shoebuy, I was surprised to see the current rating on Glassdoor was not on the more satisfied side, and wanted to add my voice. The company is growing well (lots of new, bright talent has been hired in the past 14 months across several departments), and is currently focused on bringing an improved customer experience to life. The company is also part of IAC, which means it has a very strong parent company, which was something that gave me even more confidence in Shobeuy when I made my career move here initially.

    For me, having colleagues to work with who are strong in their fields and dedicated to do good work is very important and I have found this to be the case here. In the division of the company I am in, there is no lack of opportunity and bringing new ideas for the company - or improvements to processes in place - has been very well received, which is very refreshing. On several occasions, when I have had experience that fell outside my job description but I wanted to contribute, my manager has welcomed this and supported my growth in these areas as well. And of course, working in such a fun, tangible field like footwear and retail is certainly a plus, though also a bit dangerous for the personal budget. ;)

    Cons

    As with any challenging job, there will always be more to do than hours in the week, so you need to be able to work well with others, prioritize and be prepared for the busy seasons (in retail, there are many!). The company is in a very competitive space, which can be stressful (as some other employees have noted here). None of this is unique to Shoebuy - just to good jobs where employees need to want to work hard, work as a team for the greater good, and be rewarded for that hard work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are so many great things going on with the company but it seems like not all employees are aware of all of the great strides the company is making or planning, so working to better communicate all of these updates would likely be well-received.
