Pros

Young energetic vibe, lots of chances to work on different projects, really enjoy the laid back style of the place.

Cons

low salary, processes could be improved for more efficient workflow

Advice to Management

Really like the goals and mission of the company, think there is great progress being made to improve work flow. Could work on aligning goals between different departments, and have more interactions between different departments as well.

    Pros

    Full ownership of your position and method of working. The busy, hectic environment can easily make you feel like you and everyone is headed somewhere great at a fast clip. The environment and corporate philosophy have led to experiences I wouldn't trade for any title or compensation package.

    Cons

    Fast growth leads to a lot of things being missed or ignored until the problem becomes critical. Not so great watching once enthusiastic coworkers lose their sense of accomplishment and self-worth over the long haul.

    Advice to Management

    Phenomenal start, kudos. Maybe think about finding ways to continue pushing employees to realize their potential and continue the great path Zulily is on, but you might try going about it in a way that involves fewer warnings of dire consequences and more along the lines of trust and faith in employee ability and desire to succeed.

    Pros

    Young employee base, so if your looking to meet some new people, or hang out with a younger crowd, it could be for you. Also, if your looking for something that just pays the bills, and provides the very basic benefits, i.e. health and dental, then this is for you.

    Cons

    The company does not reward employees for positive performance or feedback. Managers are severely incompetent and provide no clear direction on career growth. There are way too many great companies in Seattle to work for then zulily - amazon, Boeing, Microsoft, Nordstroms, REI, the list goes on. The writing on the wall is that the company is just trying to grow exponentially fast, and cut margins whatever way possible(i.e. employee pay and benefits) so that upper management can sell the company(and the company's problems) onto someone else like Amazon. Again, unless your just trying to pay the bills and get very basic health/dental insurance, stay away and dont waste your time. Pay raises are unheard of, you are rewarded with a gold star, and the stock option benefit is a scam to make people believe that the low wages are compensated for by stock options. Your options do not fully vest until youve been with the company for four years. Once coworker applied for another position internally and was replied to after her interview with a macro response that read, "Dear, YOUR NAME...."

    Managers would rather hire anyone off the street then promote from within.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to recognize employee performance. Nothing
