    Busy, at times frenetic pace, but the best, most innovative people I've ever worked with.

    Pros

    Rue is doing some of the best work in this space, which is evolving every day. The people and their ideas of how to make things even better are so great. People at all levels are very approachable, including the CEO. There is no shortage of opportunity here. It's an exciting and challenging place to work. There is always a new project or a new program - we are only 5 years old, so the sky's the limit.

    Cons

    Sometimes the frenetic pace causes Rue to make hasty decisions, or change direction often. It can be hard and frustrating to keep up with that. People work hard, and there could be more efficient ways of doing things, teams need to take a step back and think differently sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to leverage leaders at the next levels; lots of valuable ideas waiting to happen.

    I worked at Rue La La as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Fun environment, everyone is very friendly and easy to work with. I had a very enjoyable experience as an intern.

    Cons

    A lot of times, I felt that the process to get things accomplished was very slow. It took a lot of time to get things through each team in order for your task to be completed.

    Underpaid!, My current pay is based on position and not experience (I have a year+ more experience compared to others that I work with), No more free snacks, Taking advantage of creative contracts, Lots of open positions and people leaving

    Advice to Management

    Don't take advantage of young contractors, just to let them go in a few months–Leaving full-time employees to struggle.

    Pros

    Fast paced always changing environment which keeps the job interesting.
    By far the best group of people I've worked with in any company.
    Quick to get rid of underperforming staff (for the most part).

    Cons

    Fast paced always changing environment could be frustrating if you aren't the right fit.
    Lots of people with strong personalities/opinions (mostly good, some bad) so if you can't hold your own you might be overwhelmed working here.
    Training in certain parts of the organization is lacking.

    Pros

    Great culture, smart people. Smart conversation happening throughout the office, each & every day.

    Cons

    The pro of constant change yields to the con of lack of focus -this can be draining & discourage collaboration & planning for the future

    Advice to Management

    Understand when there is a gap between Sr. Management & day-to-day work, and work towards it.
