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 Management

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!

    Pros

    Culture is a fit for me, I like to work at place that move fast, including fail fast. Not just saying fast but doing things fast.
    Impact, with the current size of the company, each one of us can still make an impact.
    Location, Mountain View is just the center of everything.

    Cons

    If you are the typical 9-5 person, it could be a little difficult to start, I went through it and I have to adjust my kids/family schedule for it.. Wish I could have the work from home 2 days a week.
