    I have been working at Gilt Groupe full-time

    Pros

    • Gilt Credit to your account. Company discount on website
    • Sleek office environment
    • Smart (and friendly) coworkers
    • Fast-paced workplace with many challenges and a high learning curve

    Cons

    The perks end here. Depending on the team, experiences can vary. I hope someone will take note of the below and consider twice before committing to working here.

    • A lot of managers don't support and are hardly ever around when needed. If you're looking for even a bit of mentorship, look elsewhere.
    • No work-life balance.
    • Fast-turnover, speaks for itself.
    • Positive, cheerful facade over a crumbling managerial structure. HR is not helpful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To senior executives: please put more emphasis on growing and recognizing the achievements of your non-managerial employees. As a previous reviewer mentioned, hire managers that will guide them in the correct path towards success. Please reevaluate your managers based on their ability to be a solid manager (not just to do their own job). This may be the one downfall of an otherwise great company.

    I worked at Gilt Groupe full-time

    Pros

    You are working with very smart people who are passionate about what they do. The environment is creative and promotes team work. The flexibility to work remotely and shift hours depending on my schedule was also amazing!

    Cons

    There are many wonderful examples of promotion from within very quickly. However, people were often promoted without the proper management experience. This lead to frustration with managers not understanding how to lead.
