I have been working at Gilt Groupe

Pros

During period of formative growth, great opportunities for advancement and promotion. Incredibly responsive and agile tech management, great combination of talented engineers and managers

Cons

All consuming and enervating, current focus on the bottom line and recent spate of restructuring has put a damper on the fun atmosphere and the prospects for future raises and promotions.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't expect to eek out a limited profit margin at the expense of over-utilizing your current work force. Growth will not be sustainable without the requisite number of people to support and manage it, company objectives should be refocused if current figures do not meet management and market expectations. Would have appreciated more candor during the initial phase of restructuring.

    Pros

    Fast paced work keeps everyone busy and never a dull moment. Tons to learn from very talented management. Hyper growth leads to endless opportunities

    Cons

    Lots of work to be done and need to learn to prioritize them. If not you'll get buried and burned by setting false expectations

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    keep up the good word with growing the company.
