I have been working at Polyvore full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Still a small team, so each person has a lot of ownership and can make a big impact.
High standards in hiring = best coworkers you can ask for. The company is full of people who care about quality and just get stuff done.
Product moves quickly, and decisions are heavily data-driven. Testing is built into the platform.
Very transparent leadership. No spin.

Cons

Hard to stay focused because the business moves so quickly. The engineering team is still probably not as large as it should be to support the product demands.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Remember that you've hired smart, talented people that you can trust to make the important decisions that drive the business. Keep the bar high for new hires, so we don't lose that trust.

    I have been working at Polyvore full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I really like the team and I've been given a lot of opportunities to learn new things. Polyvore is still at a scale where I can have a big impact which is nice, and I haven't heard any blue-haired managerial crazy talk since I got here. So I like it a lot.

    Cons

    I'm not someone that is normally associated with fashion, so that sometimes takes some explaining.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think you're doing fine. If I really had advice for you guys I could just tell you in person since you're sitting only a few feet away. Hi!
