    I worked at Lulu.com full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Free drinks and snacks, flexible schedule, and excellent people on the lower rungs.

    Cons

    I worked here for a few years, and each day was spent looking out the window hoping for something better. There are zero opportunities for advancement beyond applying for outside jobs. Layoffs happened on a regular and unsettling basis. Managers seemed to care absolutely not at all for the happiness or general well-being of their subordinates. Any dissent or constructive criticism, even when asked for, would be greeted...

    Advice to Management

    Please allow yourselves to move on to places of employment where your complete lack of managerial and administrative abilities would be exposed, rather than linger on in a place where your only real contribution is in laying good people off and tormenting those that remain. The people you manage deserve better than yourselves.

    I have been working at Lulu.com full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    A few year's ago Lulu went thru a change in technical leadership from the CTO all the way down. That leadership has brought in many progressive DevOps oriented concepts and has delivered several new modern products built upon a cloud hosted micro-service platform. The future is bright for Lulu.com!

    Cons

    None that I've seen so far

    I worked at Lulu.com for less than a year

    Pros

    Majority of co-workers nice to work with. Technology management is incredibly immature, many decisions being made based on who favors who. Pretty high turnover along with carelessness running the show. Good tech resources few in between.

    Cons

    Clueless management, program management has little to no framework.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on bribing and keeping quality resources. Remove ppl who smile wide just to cover the fact that they have no idea what they doing....and you've got quite of few of those.

    This review was left for the wrong company (we do not, nor have we ever, employed a contractor in Seattle). Unfortunately, Glassdoor won't investigate or take action unless you pay them. There are a lot of companies out there that trade under the name Lulu, but Glassdoor only feels ...
