I have been working at zulily full-time (More than a year)

Pros

- fun, lively people mostly in their 20's - 30's
- fashionable environment
- fast-growing company
- opportunities to model for fun
- kegs in the kitchen, pool table, free coffee

Since this is still considered to be a "new" company, there's a lot of opportunities you can carve for yourself. Like every other job, however, you have to be very willing and driven to succeed in order to go up the ranks and/or do what you truly want to do. Overall, it's a fun company, especially for recent college grads.

Cons

- LOW SALARY (why else would we favor recent grads?)
- high turnover aka more work/stress for the employees left behind
- no orca card AND horrible parking
- some merch people think they run the show, which leads to essentially disrespecting other departments and team members
- approx. 90% all-female company. where's the gender diversity at?

Advice to Management

Reward, reward, reward!!! zulily is a revolving door of employees. At least try to keep the ones who are really amazing at their job by offering raises and bonuses. I see a lot of people who work three times as hard and really make the company who we are, but due to low compensation and lack of recognition, their clock runs out.

    I worked at zulily full-time

    Pros

    Great people, fast moving company, lots of energy. There are plenty of celebrations for birthdays, holidays, and everything in between.

    Cons

    Compensation is lacking and the stock options aren't all they're cracked up to be, limited growth opportunities, disposable as an employee. Also quite a bit of unprofessionalism because the company is so young. A pro at times, but when there are errors in paychecks, mistakes in vacation time, and poorly enforced policies, it's very frustrating.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in the people making the company run. The recession won't last forever and good people will move on unless zulily starts paying better and treating their employees like they treat their customers.

    I worked at zulily full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Fun work environment, great people, very fast paced, never bored. No two days were ever the same. Great for an hourly job.
    Company is growing really fast and is always trying new things.

    Cons

    Growing pains. Some work had to be redone when directions or schedules weren't clear, but company is working on improving systems and processes

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing in the systems
