I worked at Rue La La

Pros

Free food and good events, nice office space, cool to work in fashion industry.

Cons

Very cliquey- one minute you're in and the next minute you're out. The managers at all upper levels especially people at the top promoted this atmosphere. Contractors, interns, even full time employees can seemingly be dropped at any given moment depending on whether or not you fit in with the person above you.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Look into the way that hiring is done and don't be afraid to re-evaluate people who are not working. Support and encourage your workers, and communicate more frequently and effectively on a one-to-one or team scale. Start implementing manager reviews.

    I worked at Rue La La as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great building, cool office space, coworkers are pleasant, nice people.

    Cons

    The company seemed SEVERELY overpopulated by marketing people. I'm pretty sure that it's not necessary to have a marketing person assigned to each granular page on the site, for example. Also, don't bother applying for a job here unless you currently work at Digitas, because that's where 80% of the hires seem to come from/are referred from. Also, if you contract there, expect communication about your end date to be fuzzy to nonexistent--I walked in one day after several unanswered inquiries to my hiring manager to ask what was going on, and found my desk completely cleared out. Is it that hard or weird to respond clearly to a contractor's perfectly reasonably phrased email?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop letting your company be run by marketing people. You are a product/e-commerce company, not a pure marketing consultancy. Fire half your employees, if you haven't already. Keep only the smartest people. Fix your communication. Stop hiring only from Digitas (a company with its own problems)!

    I worked at Rue La La

    Pros

    fun co-workers
    decent work space
    some fun events throughout the year

    Cons

    Bad management, upper management lie to employees a lot. Management cannot or will not listen to what you have to say no matter how professional or polite you are. There is very little room to move up in the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees, don't just say you will and never actually do anything to improve a situation.
