    Pros

    A lot of talented, creative people are there who are passionate about the company. People and company are open to new ideas and approaches.

    Cons

    There were a lot of changes and that created challenges. The long-term direction was somewhat uncertain. The work could be intense at times.

  2. It was a joy. Invigorating. Challenging. Rewarding.

    The company culture is fantastic.

    Cons

    There are no true cons.

    Advice to Management

  3. ShoeDazzle is all about tenure and nepotism

    Pros

    Great product discounts. There are also some sensible departments but not sure who is really left after the JustFab acquisition.

    Cons

    If you want to go above and beyond, this isn't the place. Reason and logic doesn't trump tenure. Promotions are all about who has been there longest.

    The pay is also not very good.

    Lastly, they do not invest in technology at all. They recently outsource the engineering team to the Phillipines.

    Advice to Management

    If you want the best talent, then valuing tenure and nepotism will only get you mediocrity. :)

    Pros

    AMAZING company culture. Very exciting and everyone you work with is so cool. It's fashion so the calls you get are about shoes and not so angry, it's not like a normal call-center...in fact, our manager always told us that we do not want them to think we were a call center so talking and having fun was not only allowed, it was encouraged. I thought that was great because our director (who is gone now) would change seats a lot and just make sure that everyone gets along with each other, he never wanted someone to stay in their shell and he def brought me out of mine. : ) The pay is good, you start out with a certain pay but every 6 months you get a review and your pay goes up. I started with $11 an hour (as a temp) and within 9 months I was at $14.50 an hour. The meetings they have with the stylist and the reps are amazing, every month we would see first hand from photo shoots and trends and there is also a monthly corporate meeting which is a great way to see the company's goals and why they do what they do. You also get to meet great people that have amazing jobs on the corporate side which I wish I had some of their jobs, I guess you could say I was inspired by some.

    Cons

    The fact that I was there taking calls for a year and went to a Fashion school was not cool. I had dreams of working in marketing or as a stylist but no one ever really cared. I was told that those people have masters from "harvard" and pretty much that I had no chance. It was kind of sad, because I really would have LOVED to learn other parts of the company but I was STUCK taking 80 calls a day. I loved the company but hated talking on the phone and just felt like I needed to start a new journey. I do miss the people and the company and unfortunately I have moved to another state (AZ) where there are not any fashion company's. There's not much bad things to say other than I wish there were more promotion opportunities and I hated being on the phone BUT that was my job.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to each employee about their goals, let them shadow other areas of interest. These are the people who you can trust, who eat/sleep/dream about your company and products already. Don't just hire outside based off someones resume...there is nothing wrong with that, but allow your former employees to grow..so they do not leave.

  7. ShoeDazzle acquired by JustFab, has moved all client services and operations departments to the Philippines and Mexico.

    Pros

    Very nice employee discount for US employees

    Cons

    ShoeDazzle/JustFab reacts to business challenges and does not think strategically. The company is very bureaucratic and top heavy.

    Advice to Management

    Hire a six-sigma professional to help streamline and eliminate redundancies.

    Chance to be part of a hot company
    Being part of crazy growth
    Great co-workers
    Fun culture
    Interesting and dynamic business model

    Constantly shifting strategic priorities - still trying to figure out what it wants to be when it grows up

    Advice to Management

    Figure out a direction and stick to it - no more flopping around.
    Promote and retain people because of their skills - not because they're friends with certain people
