Great place to interact with talented employees, but difficult place in terms of overall work quality

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

Pros

Gilt is a great place to meet people that are going places. Almost everyone you work with has that "spark", where you can just tell that they are going to have a very successful career.

Cons

Really long hours and a lot of pressure, without a clear pathway to promotion/higher salary. To some degree, a lot of people there think that their priorities should be everyone's priorities, so it can be difficult to manage the pressure from competing projects

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The structure of the departments need to be organized in a way that allows for clear delegation of projects/responsibilities. In large measure, a lot of different roles are working on the same tasks without a clear sense of ownership.

    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
