I have been working at The Zappos Family full-time

Pros

The interesting people and friendships you'll make are the best part of working here - It truly is like a family.

Cons

Interesting projects have increasingly given way to quotidian tasks and the beginnings of stagnation over the past couple years. More and more of the people in tech that made this such a good place to work have left for more challenging or interesting endeavors.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It's vital to keep the people you already in tech, but also critical to be able to attract new talent. There has to be a balance between green recruits, who may be very smart and good culture fits, but have little real world experience and the seasoned developers who can design the systems you need. To be able to attract and retain the more senior people, you'll need to provide an environment with challenging/interesting projects, other skilled teammates, and many less barriers to getting things done.

    Pros

    Easy to move up if you show passion for what you do. Great work environment, low stress, easy to make friends with almost anyone in the company.

    Cons

    A little challenging to separate work from personal life as living in Vegas - work friends are your only friends but its a great privilege to have that many friends!

    It would be rough if this were your first place to work since it would be hard to beat Zappos as a great place to work!
