    Extremely fun, rewarding place to work, but lacking strong managers

    I worked at Gilt City as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    The culture is great. There's a strong emphasis on playfulness and creativity, but still an expectation to work efficiently and get things done. That was especially apparent when the company mandated that all employees — even those not directly involved in the sales process, learn how to use SalesForce. Toward the end of my time there, you could tell upper management was really pushing for a shift toward efficiency and better pipeline management. Other than that, expect lots of company parties, in-office events and training activities.

    Cons

    Within three months, half of my team or the people I worked with had left the company for other opportunities. It seems like everyone from the "original" startup team has moved on due to growing pains in the company. Overall, Gilt City lacks a strong middle management team. As a result, there's a big disconnect between upper management and the rest of the company. If you're going for an entry to mid-level job, expect to be underpaid.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Build out a strong middle management team who will STAY at the company. Maintain the great culture.
