    I worked at ideeli full-time (more than an 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.

    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 an 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 an 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!

    Pros

    Despite fast growth, the company did a good job communicating with employees. Weekly town hall meetings and frequent all-employee happy hours were great for morale.

    Cons

    the business model itself was a little challenging as we have seen with many other deal sites plus, while the company tried many different channels, it never was able to grow outside of the core fashion category.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    great job selling the company.
