    Advice to Management

    The best job I ever had. I learned so much about the e-commerce business and Natalie Massenet was always so inspirational. Loved my coworkers and met a lot of people I now consider 'friends'. However the lack of growth potential, the inability for UK management to focus on US specific needs, the poor management style of senior management ended up forcing me to leave to a much better position, where I now feel much more appreciated and growing professionally as a result

    Top UK management really needs to look closer at department managers and their actual abilities and likability within their teams. There is nothing worse than having a manager whose ineptitude is only topped by their lack of respect towards their own team members, and simple downright ignorance and inability to listen to any idea that could not only improve business, but could make it stronger, and improve team/department/company morale. Nurturing and growing people on your own team and pushing them to be their best actually makes you a better manager, not ruling with an iron fist and having a Rottweiler disposition. There is so much untapped talent in this company for this very reason.

    PS - Not EVERY idea an employee has that goes against company standard means they have a 'negative attitude'. However after hearing it enough times, any employee WILL develop one, which is why the feeling of despair is so palpable throughout the office. Just listen to the idea before tuning out.

    The company seems to have gone from a joyous place to work, to a place where you may start to feel imprisoned and trapped in a gilded cage.

    I have been working at NET-A-PORTER full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The NYC team has some of the best people you will ever meet.
    They made work feel like home.

    Cons

    Moved out of NYC only to have people sit in traffic and hire a factory of thieves.
    New mean incompetent management.
    It feels like you have to SLEEP your way to a promotion instead of putting in hard work.
