Pros

Ample opportunities for employee development/advancement
Upper management truly values employees
Laid-back atmosphere
Flexible work schedule
Competitive salary
Fun company lunches
Stable company with job security

Cons

Not too big of a deal, but it would be nice if the company observed a few more holidays.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I started working at HauteLook in the company's first year, so I have seen it change and grow over the last few years. The company's leadership has done an excellent job of managing this change so that the company continues to be a great place to work.

    A fast-moving company...with little opportunity for advancement.

    I worked at HauteLook

    Pros

    -Occasional catered lunches
    -Despite little paid vacation time, most departments are flexible about unpaid time off when necessary
    -Lots of company growth makes for a stable work environment compared to other start-ups

    Cons

    -Most salaries are below market value
    -Little opportunity for upward mobility
    -Only two weeks of paid vacation (three after 3 years), and few paid holidays
    -No employee discount, just free shipping (but only on select items)
    -The internal promotion process is questionable at best, straight-up nepotism at worst
    -Employee initiative and innovation are neither encouraged nor rewarded; it's nearly impossible implement new projects or changes below a management level

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Replace the cupcakes and catered lunches with base wages that are reflective of market value, and create incentives that are geared toward building employee engagement and retention.
