Pros

- Employee discounts are great.
- Quarterly allowance is always a plus.
- Flexible time off.

Cons

- Company is becoming more corporate so expect politics and red tape.
- Advancement is not based on hard work so you'll need to play politics to move up.
- Morale has been on the decline so expect a lot of turn over.
- Teams and departments do not communicate well and upper management tries not to communicate at all.

    I worked at Gilt Groupe

    Pros

    Employee discounts on Gilt merchandise. Quarterly allowance to use on Gilt.

    Cons

    Company lacked clear focus or consistent vision. An extremely top-heavy organization, Gilt was filled with incompetent senior execs who lacked basic experience in consumer internet and ecommerce. The result was a chaotic and toxic environment where self righteous VPs made unreasonable and asinine demands that were completely unreasonable and created a series of distractions. The ratio of "talkers" to "doers" at Gilt was astonishing.
