    Advice to Management

    Put your money where your mouth is--if you really value your employees, pay them more! you are a public company now; start-up salaries are not acceptable

    Pros

    In the engineering group you will have a chance to create really important infrastructure that has huge and immediate impact. This does mean that you'll be on call to support it, and responsible for making sure your team can support it for when you are not available. Sometimes there are still escalations that require your expertise but that's what goes with being a subject and systems matter expert. This company has been growing fast but is has improved dramatically the past 6 months in project management and balanced work loads.

    I work with some of the brightest people that are a true joy to work with in all departments. It is wonderful to work with such energetic and motivated people in merchandising, studio, fulfillment, and engineering. All groups contribute to creating and improving internal systems and process so regardless of where you work you can have big impact.

    zulily has also been an outstanding place for females in technology to work with very low turn over. I am proud of zulily for finding and retaining so many outstanding females in engineering and at all levels in all of the other company departments too. We are also a diverse bunch in all areas and this contributes to our strength and creativity as a team.

    Cons

    Your job is important and it can be stressful. The company has grown so fast and there have been definite growing pains but things have improved dramatically with project management and work loads. Things move very quickly but we have slowed down.

    Advice to Management

    Promote more people internally, even if they are not changing jobs. All jobs need to clearly have levels of experience in title tied to pay. Give people raises for doing well. Have salary reviews every 6 months for employees that earn less than 50k per year and pay them more for doing well. It makes a huge difference working with a colleague that has 18 months internal experience versus 4 months. Quarterly bonus program for all employees.
