    I worked at Stylesight part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Compensation, independence, hands off leadership, T&E, encouraged to get 'things' done 24/7, travel, ability to make decisions...no matter the size/scope, ambitious coworkers and did I say T&E!!!

    Cons

    Zero personal growth...either you know what you're doing or you you'll never learn. Many coworkers seem bitter, beat-up and unhappy...which reflected in their desire to get 'things' done. Management was/is a bit aloof.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Engage, interact and encourage the entire staff.

    I worked at Stylesight

    Pros

    Great service, technology and compelling platform for design professionals.

    Cons

    Micro-management starting at the top.... no talking (!) in NYC and top execs in small posse around CEO. No trust and no sense of fun or celebration when things were going well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Understand work/life balance and that everyone is motivated by different things. Trusting employees would go a long way to developing a much happier and more productive culture.

    I have been working at Stylesight full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Product, creative environment, central NY location

    Cons

    History of management dysfunction; they "know everything" so your input goes nowhere (or you get zero recognition)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pointless to attempt.

    I worked at Stylesight full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Summer hours are great if you can take them
    Interesting product and opportunity for growth

    Cons

    Diva attitudes amongst many of the Senior team - who constantly put each other down in public
    Micro management by CEO with consistently changing priorities making it impossible to move the business forward

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pick a strategy which everyone is unified on and then execute on it - the constant in fighting and undermining each other only hurts the company as a whole and nothing is ever fully implemented - and then yet another change comes along - stop the viscous cycle.

    I worked at Stylesight full-time

    Pros

    Generally great personalities and talent across all departments. Beautiful office space.

    Cons

    There is a communication gap between management and employees and a culture of blame within certain departments which make collaboration and productivity suffer at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage ideas and feedback from the team on decisions that will impact them, and actually put them into consideration and action.
