    Pros

    • Monthly Gilt Credit to your account. • Gilt events • Company discount on website TRUST ME THAT IS ALL YOU WILL LIKE ABOUT THE COMPANY!!!

    Cons

    • Be prepared to be talked down to. • People are only promoted based on how much they like you. • Raises are in cents not dollars unless you are a favorite employee. • Mangers don't support • Manager are hardly every around when needed • They work you to the bone and don't compensate you for it after. • They give praise towards employees that Don't do anything all day if they favor you. • You will mostly of not always hear about the negatives instead of the positives. • They treat lower employees who are not in manager positions like they are to be seen and not heard. • Your opinion is not wanted so don't try to give it. • They don't care about your personal feelings or life. • Working for Gilt is like signing your soul to the devil.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees the same way you will want to be treated. Guide them in the correct path towards success and not failure. Stop being condescending all of the time. Please get rid of the I don't give a rat about mentalities and show some kind of compassion at times.

    Pros

    Autonomous environment where you can run with your idea and test it out. Employees are young and smart, and the fast-paced nature of the company keeps you on your toes and keeps pushing you further. The execs listen to the voices of the employees and have made changes like updating the pantry. The culture is fun - they offer manicures and massages during the day and are bringing meals in. There are happy hours, and a really fun halloween party every year. Its great to work for a company where the customers love the brand and are highly engaged. There isnt a vacation policy, and you get a sabbatical after working there for 3 and 5 years.

    Cons

    There are no down-cycles, its an always-on environment. Some of the employees are too young and have no other experience so they don't know how to conduct themselves in a business setting. It is difficult to advance because the company has grown to its max and so new positions are few. Its becoming more of a corporate, bureaucratic culture and has lost most of its start-up feel.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to do a better job identifying their top performers and helping them develop further.
