Pros

- Employee discounts are great.
- Quarterly allowance is always a plus.
- Flexible time off.

Cons

- Company is becoming more corporate so expect politics and red tape.
- Advancement is not based on hard work so you'll need to play politics to move up.
- Morale has been on the decline so expect a lot of turn over.
- Teams and departments do not communicate well and upper management tries not to communicate at all.

    Pros

    Employee discounts on Gilt merchandise. Quarterly allowance to use on Gilt.

    Cons

    Company lacked clear focus or consistent vision. An extremely top-heavy organization, Gilt was filled with incompetent senior execs who lacked basic experience in consumer internet and ecommerce. The result was a chaotic and toxic environment where self righteous VPs made unreasonable and asinine demands that were completely unreasonable and created a series of distractions. The ratio of "talkers" to "doers" at Gilt was astonishing.
