I have been working at Blue Nile

Pros

The business model is really smart, people are great, the fast pace makes it exciting and I enjoy my job.

Cons

Things happen really fast which makes it difficult to keep up and then other things take much too long.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Allow employees more autonomy appropriate to their roles so we can keep the pace quick and get things done.

    I worked at Blue Nile

    Pros

    If you were looking for a laid-back job where you can "phone it in" then this is a good choice. It is very easy to blend into the scenery.

    Cons

    No respect for ideas that didnt come from long-term management.
    No way to move promising employees ahead in organization.
    Complete lack of planning on everything.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect Employees in mid management and below. Just because you founded the company doesn't mean you are always right.

    Horrible retention.

    Might want to consider Amazon instead given hours worked, commute, and time spent around work.

    I worked at Blue Nile

    Pros

    Health benefits are fairly good. Stock options can be useless depending on when you're hired due to peak seasons. Pretty laid back place as a software engineer.

    Cons

    Management tends to be deceitful. Expected of engineers to work more than 40 hours a week. Project definitions are generally very vague. No documentation for existing systems. Turn over is very high in most departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employee retention.
