Oh... Zulily!

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Seattle, WA

ProsThey have a knack for hiring young, smart, vivacious people that really have a passion to help the company succeed. When you first start it's easy to drink the juice and get caught up with the extreme growth and "incredible" milestones. It's a good learning opportunity for a recent graduate not quite sure about what they wanted to do. If you do well with the "high school" mentality - lots of pep ralleys, cliques, and the like - then Zulily can be perfect for you! It's not an evil place, but it is definitely not for everyone.

ConsTo give Zulily credit, I hear it's gotten better. However, be careful what you wish for. Working at a startup means that there are no set processes and things are changing all of the time. Yes, this can be exciting, but some jobs need process to be successful. Management is ok. There is a lot of passive agressive attitudes with the motto that "the door is always open" but the reality is that any feedback is likely meant with a defensive attitude or icing out afterward. They like to tell you that there is room for growth, but that is iffy at best. As someone who has moved on to better and brighter things, I think you should seriously consider what you're looking for. Really try to read the people you are potentially working with and if personalities seem like a good fit, then your time at Zulily may not be all bad. Is the company going to be the wave of the future? Perhaps.... But do your research before committing. If you wonder why people have been there 2+ years... they may not be happy but they are waiting to cash out.

Advice to Senior ManagementFollow through on what you say. Reward talent you want to keep or they will leave.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
