I worked at ModCloth full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

- Rapid growth creates many opportunities! It's definitely a place where you can extend yourself and get involved in projects outside your area of focus to grow and develop your skills.

- The company is eager to promote from within, great place to go with a long-term mindset.

- Great work/life balance. Results-oriented work environment.

- Fun and creative employees

- Employee discount :)

Cons

- This isn't an early stage startup anymore. If you're considering a job there, just be aware, you are walking into an established company. ModCloth moves fast for its size, but there is inertia and a lot of cross-team collaboration that needs to happen to make big changes.

- The company is a little bit confused about whether it is a technology company or a fashion company, hard to be best in the world at both.

Advice to Management

Focus focus focus. There are so many top-level priorities. We could build better alignment across the organization by simplifying the strategy.

    Pros

    * Insane healthcare plan.
    * Very creative team. Lots of awesome ideas.
    * Very fast growth, particularly for the size.
    * AWESOME employee discount.
    * Fun company activities (happy hours, parties, etc.)

    Broadly, the culture, management and strategy are trending in the right direction. Nothing is perfect, but the management team is getting more seasoned and figuring it out.

    Cons

    * Cash compensation doesn't always seem to be at 'market rates.'
    * Sometimes a lot of competing priorities at once. Hard to keep up.
    * Sometimes the decision-making process (or chain) is unclear.

    The company has two major cultural segments that sometime seem divided. There is a 'creative' organization and a 'technology' organization. They don't always seem to be aligned.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on fewer strategic priorities. Less is more.

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

    Pros

    - Great coworkers. There's a fantastic community vibe, fun company celebrations, and everyone seems to really care about each other and our customers.
    - The company's mission (to empower all women and to make women of all sizes feel beautiful) feels really genuine to me.
    - Work/life balance - it's easy to work 40 hour weeks. People care about the work they do but can leave it behind at the end of the day.
    - Huge employee discount

    Cons

    - Engineering management doesn't come across as very supportive - I had no insight into my career development or performance.
    - There are retention and hiring problems in the engineering department in SF - it's difficult to get and keep great people.

    Advice to Management

    Work to fix problems when they first come up, instead of waiting until they've gotten worse.
