Current Employee - Junior Software Engineer in Boston, MA
Current Employee - Junior Software Engineer in Boston, MA

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

Pros

- Good, fun and interesting work
- Great people, everyone is very helpful and friendly
- Fun, young culture which is great for people out of school
- Good, competitive benefits (free snacks, good medical/dental/401k, etc.)

Cons

- Way below average pay, some people get huge raises and others don't without any real reasoning
- Sometimes workload can be large, depending on time of year and team

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay your engineers more, or your turnover in engineering is going to become worse than it already is. We hear a lot about how much we're growing year over year, but we don't see it reflected in our salaries. Your employees will start to feel very unappreciated.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Boston, MA
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Boston, MA

    I worked at Wayfair as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    -Outstanding/extensive benefits package (3.2 weeks PTO, health/dental/vision, sox/bruins/celtics tickets, discount movie tickets, free snacks, yearly bonus...)
    -Great work/life balance
    -Transparent work environment. Directors, VPs and Co-Founders are easy to talk to and provide insight and guidance.
    -Casual dress code. Jeans/t-shirts and shorts in the summer.
    -Great office space (right near the Pru) and easy to get to from MBTA.
    -Getting to work with some of the brightest minds in Boston.
    -Fun culture that promotes creativity and growth.

    Cons

    -Salaries can be a little low on the business side but that's something senior management is aware of and working to fix.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to hire top talent and keep your employees happy. The market in Boston is extremely competitive (especially in software) and the last thing you want is to lose talent to competing companies.
