I worked at HauteLook

Pros

Fast growing company with more stability than other flash sale sites like it
Free cupcakes
Normal 9-6 schedule

Cons

Salaries are not competitive with industry standards
Promotions are based on personal relationships rather than merit
Performance review process a joke
Extremely high turnover means that the longer term employees are the least competent
Young workforce means that employees are often inmature and inappropriate, without intervention from management or HR
Very few opportunities for growth or development
Very little vacation time- in order to have a vacation many employees take unpaid days
Next to no variety - you'll be working on the same projects day in and day out

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Beef up your HR department to effectively recruit, retain and support higher quality talent
