OK for first job out of college... but probably not for long

ProsWilling to hire recent grads and train them in positions, people you work with are pretty friendly, fun pod outings, probably will b good to have Wayfair on your resume

ConsThey pay us like we're peasants. Paying rent in Boston, paying for food, and paying student loans on their entry-level salaries is extremely stressful. Teams don't always talk to one another, sometimes things seem isolated. We work in an "open-concept" office but it's still not the norm to get up and go to someone else's desk to talk with them. Everyone emails back and forth even if the person they need to talk to is in the next row over. Glued to your computer all day. My butt hurts. And eyeballs.

Advice to Senior ManagementRaise pay to at least be comparable with similar companies. (Except engineers, they seem to get paid enough).

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Good place to start, but don't stay for too long.

Pros: Wayfair is a young retail company with hopes to conquer the world of home goods retail. As a result, employees are mostly young, hip folk… Cons: The first big con of Wayfair is the pitiful salaries they offer most entry level hires. Most entry level jobs at Wayfair pay several thousand… Advice to Senior Management: Invest in new technology so that engineers and everyone can focus on implementing new processes to support the company's growth. Also, pay everyone… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
