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!

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

    Pros

    1> This is the best workplace I've ever worked for in terms of caring for employees. There are lots of fun events, delicious catered food everyday (except Friday), freebie Friday (lots of good restaurants in Castro), $200 stipend and so on
    2> People are smart and nice
    3> Polyvore has very unique and valuable content in terms of women's fashion (to less degree on home interior)

    Cons

    1> Since it is targeting a vertical domain, growth is somewhat limited.
    2> Technology stack is quite old.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't stay with what you are comfortable but go for bolder change.
