Exciting & challenging (in a good way)

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) New York, NY

Pros- the company is breaking ground in the e-commerce field
- lots of very smart people to work with and learn from
- many opportunities to advance and learn - career progression is very fast here
- training and development is getting better as the company grows
- lots of communication - both formal and informal

Cons- not a lot of structure, so if you like traditional organizations, this probably won't work well for you
- it does not have as much of the start-up feel as it used to, but it is less chaotic as a result

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
