    Pros

    The company is growing and there are constantly new opportunities within the org that come along with that. There is a high degree of transparency across the org and the product team goes out of there way to create an engaging culture across pods. The founders and management team show an genuine interest in employee satisfaction.

    Cons

    Like any large company there are many stakeholders involved with most products but there seems to be a willingness among them to help not hinder progress.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the culture as the company grows. Place more comp. in salary vs. equity to ensure the company averages shown on Glassdoor (doesn't seem to include equity up front) and elsewhere attract the top talent that the total comp package can command.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Wayfair (Boston, MA) in April 2011.

    Interview

    The interview took place in a conference given that everyone in the office just had a desk as their work station, including the CEO. It is a very relaxed and easy going environment. The interviewer listened and questioned about career objectives to see if the position will be a good fit. The interviewer clearly thinks highly of the company and is willing to share the current status of how the company is doing. In the end, I was told I was over qualified for the position and it indeed seems like this company attracts mostly young and fresh graduates and they are hiring.
