I have been working at Wayfair full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Willing to hire recent grads and train them in positions, people you work with are pretty friendly, fun pod outings, probably will b good to have Wayfair on your resume

Cons

They pay us like we're peasants. Paying rent in Boston, paying for food, and paying student loans on their entry-level salaries is extremely stressful. Teams don't always talk to one another, sometimes things seem isolated. We work in an "open-concept" office but it's still not the norm to get up and go to someone else's desk to talk with them. Everyone emails back and forth even if the person they need to talk to is in the next row over. Glued to your computer all day. My butt hurts. And eyeballs.

Advice to Management

Raise pay to at least be comparable with similar companies. (Except engineers, they seem to get paid enough).

    I have been working at Wayfair as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very good work-life balance, very nice people, company takes good care of it's employees, centrally located in a very good city, great work environment, very flat administratively,

    Cons

    Code base and documentation not at par with what would be expected from a company of this size, very hacky, primary coding done on windows(personally don't like it but nothing wrong with that)

    Advice to Management

    Move to newer technologies that decrease the workload a lot on the part of the programmer by automating a lot of tasks via scripts, which further reduce the possibility of human error and compile scripts to run faster such as web frameworks and network integrated Databases
