I worked at HauteLook full-time (More than a year)

Pros

It's great if you're new in the industry and need to get experience, backed by Nordstrom, employee discounts

Cons

Poor management all around, it functions like a sweat shop practically. As a writer there is no room for creativity at ALL, also there really isn't much potential for moving up, very high turnover and poor employee morale. They're growing at an exponential rate which is good for business, but not employees. Only plan to put in a year or 2 there.

Advice to Management

Work on giving employees more incentive to be promoted, plus pay better. All wages are well below industry average.

    Pros

    Tons of young people work here, which makes this a great starting place for recent grads in the fashion and design fields who are looking to get their feet wet in the fast-pace environment of fashion and e-commerce.

    Cons

    There are tons of young people who work here - haha. That being the case, it can often seem as though the environment borders on high school with its clique-ish groups. But ultimately, there is a group for everyone here, so not to worry. Its not as terrible as high school and can be a very rewarding and fun place to grow as a young professional.

    Pros

    Very generous in the provision of resources for your work

    Cons

    Company mistakenly believes that "culture" and "cool" equates to success. Just because they provide what net cretins want in terms of cheap overstocked products that this amounts to a company that is "significant" and justifies aggressive deadlines as well as an upper-management culture of being obnoxious and self-assured.

    Advice to Management

    Quit stroking yourselves your company is just a retailer it does not do anything of importance.
