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

Pros

Most of the people here are young, cool, smart, innovative and all around great to be with. I can see many of them doing awesome things in the future and really going places.

Cons

Here are things that zulily is good at: overworking employees, underpaying employees, failing to provide incentives, refusing to give raises to a living wage, hiring incompetent middle management, rampant sexism, refusing to help with transit costs, high turnover rate, rapidly causing extreme burnout, exploiting recent grads, bureaucratic nonsense, no room for career growth or opportunities, and the list goes on... My coworkers and I refer to the worthlessness and self-hatred caused by prolonged employment here as 'zulily syndrome.'

Advice to Management

Start treating your employees like you actually give a crap if they stick around.

    Pros

    Great people, good atmosphere, growing really fast so it is an exciting place. Lots of younger people as we are hiring and growing very rapidly.

    Cons

    It can be busy at times because we still have a start-up mentality even though we are getting to be pretty large now.

    Advice to Management

    More flexibility

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

    Pros

    Work with smart, fun and talented people (for the most part). I love the culture and creativity the company brings. I've made some great friendships here.

    Cons

    Poor, poor management structure. Hardly no positive reinforcement from management. Management promotes based on favoritism, not by experience and work performance. Extremely underpaid and constantly having to work from home...on average working 60 hours a week (including weekends). I've been with the company for two years and asked for a raise twice...to this day have not received anything. I had really high hopes coming into this company and thought I would be successful and promoted easily based on my job performance. Cattiness and politics from management made it difficult to be successful and to enjoy my job.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees what they deserve and start promoting employees based on job performance!
