    I worked at Wayfair full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Nice co-workers, good health benefits, decent amount of PTO

    Cons

    Managers specialize in secrecy, zero transparency, mistakes made by upper management get dumped on low-level staff, favoritism towards certain peers is unmistakable and very uncomfortable to experience, low salaries across the board, "everyone is replaceable" mentality, job ads sound fancy and exciting while IRL you will be doing data entry or check over data entry, day in, day out. Managers are never satisfied, micromanage their staff and pressure you to work weekend shifts by publishing name lists of who will and who won't attend said shifts. The work is mundane and you will burn out on it very fast. If you have a choice, go for something else.

    Advice to Management

    Stop thinking everyone is replaceable and pay your employees more money. It's depressing to read emails about how amazing the company is doing in terms of profit, while you're barely surviving in the city.

    I have been working at Wayfair full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits for the industry, great competitive pay, amazing side benefits such as a well stocked break room full of treats or activities such as ping pong or foosball. Comfortable work space, great upper management, flexible schedule with paid vacation

    Cons

    Fewer opportunities to move up due to low turnover (I suppose that can be good as well) Inconsistent standards for attendance

    Advice to Management

    Work on getting employees schedules together.
