    Pros

    Exciting place to work because of all the growth and changes. Encourages a lot of fun, creative thinking and listens to employees at all levels. Provides many channels for communication.

    Cons

    You definitely need to be ready to roll with the changes and the challenges of ecommerce. You have to be quick on your toes. Workload was intense at times and required many overtime hours.

    Pros

    If you land in the right department, you can experience a great company culture. There is a fully stocked bar in the office, snacks/breakfast items, beer cart Fridays, really fun company parties... The company is also growing very fast and expanding into new categories which is exciting to see. Unfortunately, because of this factor, many executives are focused on profit and hitting numbers as opposed to managing their teams and maintaining a happy and collaborative work environment.

    Cons

    The cons definitely outweigh the pros at this company. By industry standards, salaries are very much on the low end and instead of promoting and rewarding the hard workers, executives often carry a "you're replaceable" attitude. Very discouraging and creates a toxic environment to work in at times. They love to have company wide meetings highlighting how successful the business is doing, but it's all smoke and mirrors to brainwash you into thinking this is a great place to work at.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start rewarding people based on hard work, not who is friends with the CEO/executive leadership team. HR needs to focus on executive level training/management, because where that's the real weakness is at the company. It's been a great learning experience but I have watched many hardworking, talented people begin to leave due to feeling overworked, underpaid, and undervalued. My manager has specifically said to me she is unsure of growth opportunities available within our team, and after hearing this, I am definitely ready to jump ship.

    Pros

    There are couple of Pros for working at JustFab, but none are absolutely amazing. You get breakfast and snacks (none of which stay stocked. They run out before restocking weekly), Beer Cart Fridays, We also have a bar (but seems purposeless because you always run the risk of your boss getting mad at you for being at the bar, even on fridays at 5pm, even though you've completed all your tasks), and we have company sponsored events like happy hours, beach party, holiday party etc., and you're bound to click with a co-worker or two.

    Cons

    Where do I start. Well, I guess I could start with management. It always feel like under qualified people are in these positions because they almost NEVER know what they're doing, if they're doing anything at all. I've been with the company for a couple of years and there is no career path here. They talk about how they want their employees here for years and years and how there's all this room for growth but I don't see it. I ask my superior what my next steps are to advancing my career and nobody knows. That's literally what my superior said to me. Very discouraging. Pay is also terrible. I started doing research on my position and what other companies in the area are paying and JustFab is definitely on the low end. You would think after being there for so long I would have gotten a couple of raises by now, or at least a significant one. But Unfortunately I haven't. No matter how hard I work I just feel like it goes unnoticed, because things are getting done and as long as things are getting done that's all that superiors seem to be concerned about. I'm officially starting my job hunt to take the next step in my career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Having qualified people in these management positions is vital.

    Pros

    Free alcohol. Cheap shoes. Decent food options in the area.

    Cons

    Serious lack of concise direction and anyone who knows how to manage. For anyone who wants to get their job done, there is a serious roadmap to navigate. Mostly egos and lack of best practices. Lack of original ideas or a culture that fosters them. Failure to recognize accomplishment. Culture is beyond terrible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please learn how to manage.

    Pros

    Great company culture, exciting environment, never a dull moment. Consistently striving for improvements, keeping the company abreast of all updates, and making sure employees are happy in their role. Definitely lots of opportunity for career growth in a mentoring environment.

    Cons

    Fast-paced atmosphere and some roles may have a heavy work load at times, can be difficult for those not up for the challenge. If you are looking for an opportunity to shine, help build upon a brand or improve processes, have a meaningful impact in a department, than JustFab is right for you.

    Pros

    * Company Culture: It's true, JustFab has the best company culture I've ever experienced in my career. The CEOs truly care about creating the best place to work in LA, which JustFab is. There are company-sponsored events, happy hours and community-driven initiatives that all contribute to making JustFab a fun place to work.

    * Career Growth Opportunities: There is a lot of opportunity for growth, and the company makes it a point to promote or hire from within. Employees are genuinely valued and hard work is recognized.

    * Fast-paced, entrepreneurial spirit: While the company is incredibly successful, there is still a sense of a start-up environment. Priorities and strategies can shift suddenly - the fast-paced environment might not be for everyone, but it's exciting to be a part of the most successful subscription company in the industry. New ideas are welcomed and everyone is encouraged to share their thoughts and opinions - even if you don't all agree.

    * Amazing teams: We work with some of the best and brightest in the industry. It's inspiring working with so many smart and passionate people, including our brilliant CEOs!

    * Shoes, shoes, and more shoes. And purses. And jewelry. And denim...and awesome activewear: If you love fashion, you will love working at JustFab!!

    Cons

    * The company is growing so fast, we have outgrown our headquarters, but will be moving into a brand new, custom-built campus in 2014!

    * You will quickly run out of closet space working here :)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    * Would love to see more cross-functional meetings for important initiatives as it sometimes feels like teams are not aware of what each other is working on or how we all contribute to the bigger picture.

    * Would love to understand what the company's goals are for 2014 and beyond so we know what we are all working towards.

    Pros

    There's a lot of professional growth potential for employees, as the company is growing so quickly. There are also a lot young creatives and idea sharing throughout. The culture is also very inspiring and it's a unique work environment of people who really feel like they're contributing to the greater whole.

    Cons

    Lack of communication is the greatest downfall. There are a lot of changes that happen quite frequently and sometimes employees aren't given a clear path for success.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate changes in policy, transparency in business planning so the entire office is pointed in the right direction.
