    I have been working at ideeli

    Pros

    Ideeli is a very Interesting place to work. Everything is done right there. Makeup, shooting and the final artwork. The people who work there are very friendly and professional.

    Cons

    It seems like working for this company requires a lot of very long hours and for a relatively lesser pay scale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I get the impression that management is not too involved with the day to day operation. This is not necessarily a bad thing but I think if they see the hard work that the employees, do they might be rewarded a little better.

    Pros

    Fun start up environment, a lot of room for growth if you work hard, you will learn a lot and have a lot of responsibility

    Cons

    A LOT of turnover, unorganized, no HR team , always understaffed people leave and are not replaced, no stability, long hours

  3. A lot of parties, culture club and sample sales. The downside is that employment here does not seem very stable.

    I have been working at ideeli full-time

    Pros

    There is a 30% discount on the company website. The company also sells left over samples to employees for really cheap. Bought a $10 designer dress and many other things for cheap. We wear jeans to work everyday and the coworkers are *really* nice.

    Cons

    Lack of stability and pay. Groupon bought us in January so we are "restructuring". Almost half of the original top management is gone. Similar companies pay more than here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sample sales and free snacks are nice, but is not enough to retain the talent you need to meet your ambitious goals. Your investment in Ideeli will only pay off if you seriously invest in the employees first.

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

    Pros

    Great people: helpful and supportive. In the tech group, there was a real culture of learning and growth. A good portion of the team was not on-site, and that was handled very well with constant communication.

    Cons

    Company panicked when times got tough. Technical co-founder is no longer with the company. Stuck with some older technology that was very difficult to upgrade.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When competition gets harder, don't pull back on sales and tech investments.

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

    Pros

    My team of coworkers were great as was my direct manager! We had a decent benefit package and would have occasional happy-hour meetings and they offered weekly yoga for some time.

    Cons

    With such fast early growth and a challenging business model things got a bit chaotic. Strategies shifted frequently. Many people outside of my department had opinions (whether qualified or not) about or work which slowed the process and compromised the quality. Raises were rare.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication is key and too many cooks in the kitchen makes a mess. Also wages should be more competetive.

    I worked at ideeli as an intern

    Pros

    Everyone was very friendly, willing to help and I loved the atmosphere. I was exposed to many different facets in the different departments.

    Cons

    I don't have many cons because I truly loved working there. You just have to love working in a very fast-paced environment at all times. You are constantly working under deadlines so it can definitely get hectic.

    I worked at ideeli as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    I really enjoyed my internship at Ideeli. I was lucky enough to be on a very passionate team of people who wanted the site to succeed. I got a glimpse of almost every different department and everyone had a very young, fresh vibe and was eager to learn!

    Cons

    This is not necessarily a con but Ideeli is definitely still in a major growth stage. But I actually thought that was part of the excitement working there. Ideas changed around a lot and some people weren't always on the same page, however everyone was always working towards a common goal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some of the younger staff have a lot of great ideas that should really be taken into consideration and implemented!
