I have been working at HauteLook full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Casual dress code and formerly flexible hours

Cons

Pay is 25%-30% below market. They claim to be a startup after 6 years and act like employees are a dime a dozen.

Advice to Management

Pointless meetings, 3 managers for every technically skilled worker, multiple solutions for every problem which is confusing, technical expertise and advice is pushed back or completely disregarded, the org chart has more chiefs than Indians, the IT Department hires from outside rather than promoting from within and the few who are promoted are promoted based on their ability to kiss ass rather than their technical expertise and accomplishments. They don't recognize true talent, or worse they are threatened by it and attempt to discount it.

    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.
