    Tech/fashion startup in late-stage phase

    Software Engineer (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsStrong colleagues, friendly atmosphere, and lots of scope for individual contribution.

    One-team attitude within tech, easy to find someone who's worked with whatever random technology you think might be the right tool.

    ConsMore stable/resources to do interesting stuff but not growing as quickly as in the past...

    Great place to grow, challenging.

    Database Administrator (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsChallenging, fast paced, great people, culture, food, chance to work with different technologies and freedom to grow.

    ConsNot much room to advance, but definitely a great opportunity to get the experience needed to evolve your career. As the company grows this "con" will diminish.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThanks for everything! I would not be where I am now without the guidance and advice from my manager. Also the senior management lead by example and you feel they are on your side.

    Great Place to Work

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsYou are working with very smart people who are passionate about what they do. The environment is creative and promotes team work. The flexibility to work remotely and shift hours depending on my schedule was also amazing!

    ConsThere are many wonderful examples of promotion from within very quickly. However, people were often promoted without the proper management experience. This lead to frustration with managers not understanding how to lead.

    Good Company Great People Interesting Mission

    Systems Engineer (Current Employee)
    Dublin, Dublin (Ireland)

    ProsGreat work environment, smart people around you. Interesting scalability problem. Able to push new technology very quickly. Competitive salary.

    ConsSome technical debt all around. Monolithic application without maintainers. Too many different ways to do the same thing.

    Best Internship you'll Find in Fashion

    Men's Buying Intern (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsGilt provided me with the opportunity to be involved with many different aspects of the buying process and treated me as one of their own rather than an intern. The atmosphere is very 'tech,' no single employee has his or her own office, which makes exposure to senior management very transparent and comfortable (even as an intern). I actually looked forward to coming to the office every morning! The internship program itself exposed me to all different departments from every facet of the company and opened a lot of doors in terms of career development and mentorship.

    ConsUnpaid internship in New York City

    Excellent learning experience with a fantastic luxury start up.

    Gilt City Boston Intern (Former Employee)
    Boston, MA

    ProsInsight into the luxury market, including fashion, local lifestyle events, restaurants and so much more. Excellent, comfortable and easy-going environment that allows one to be productive and enjoy all assignments and duties.

    ConsTo be perfectly honest, I enjoyed every day that I interned. It was truly a learning experience that I am very happy to have had. I suppose our office in Boston was a bit small, but at that point there were only three of us. From what I understand their recent merger has not only increased the size of the Boston office, but of the entire market.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
