    I worked at Gilt Groupe full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I worked at Gilt Groupe for a number of years and really enjoyed my time there. It was a fast-paced, changing work environment, which is not for everyone, but I really enjoyed it. The people I worked with were great-smart and dedicated. It has a young office, but people are passionate about their jobs.

    Cons

    The hours are long and there can be a lot of change. I enjoyed it, but I know others who struggled with it. You definitely need the right personality to fit in.

    I have been working at Gilt Groupe full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    If you have the drive and will- pushing for change from within is both fun and rewarding. This is a great place to build your career.

    Cons

    Alignment can sometimes take longer than it should.

    Advice to Management

    Stay focused on executing the strategy laid out.

    I worked at Gilt Groupe as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone is very personable: there are numerous opportunities to shadow in different departments and learn about all the moving parts of a business. They really encourage everyone to take ownership of their projects.

    Cons

    This is not necessarily a con but more of a suggestion for you to get the most out of your experience: ask questions and ask for different opportunities. They want you to learn so tell them what you're interested in.

    Advice to Management

    As an intern, there's not too much advice I could give! Management was very open with employees and tried to create a collaborative, entrepreneurial environment.

    Pros

    Really in-depth program where you get to learn about every department of the company, office culture is very young and there is a lot of collaboration between teams, all higher-ups are very welcoming and approachable (the ceo sits in a cubicle just like the rest of us and is always available to schedule meetings with or grab coffee with)

    Cons

    no compensation for interns, there is a lot of room for independence which can be both a pro and a con -- depends on your levels of independence
