    I worked at Gilt Groupe full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Free Stumptown coffee and cereal, decent employee discount, camaraderie among junior staff, everyone gets laptops, convenient location next to the 6 train.

    Cons

    Aloof management with little knowledge or care about what their teams are going through, lack of strategy or scalable business model leads to constant shifts in direction, lack of processes and constant turnover leads to frequent fire fighting, poor morale as everyone looking for another job

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more time trying to really understand from the ground level what's going wrong. Be honest about the problems of the company, including the culture, and how you will fix them

    Former Employee - Gilt City Boston Intern in Boston, MA
    Former Employee - Gilt City Boston Intern in Boston, MA

    I worked at Gilt Groupe as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Insight into the luxury market, including fashion, local lifestyle events, restaurants and so much more. Excellent, comfortable and easy-going environment that allows one to be productive and enjoy all assignments and duties.

    Cons

    To be perfectly honest, I enjoyed every day that I interned. It was truly a learning experience that I am very happy to have had. I suppose our office in Boston was a bit small, but at that point there were only three of us. From what I understand their recent merger has not only increased the size of the Boston office, but of the entire market.
