low salary, processes could be improved for more efficient workflow

Really like the goals and mission of the company, think there is great progress being made to improve work flow. Could work on aligning goals between different departments, and have more interactions between different departments as well.

    Pros

    Fun environment. Changes happen very quickly, with lots of opportunities to be at the start of those changes. New roles allow for growth opportunities.

    Cons

    Pay. Very low compensation, they take advantage of recent college grads with minimal work experience. Management plays favorites and that can make it really hard to get ahead.

    Advice to Management

    Let your teams know what they can do to get ahead. Pay your employees comparatively to the market, or you will continue to lose great people to bigger companies.

    Pros

    Young employee base, so if your looking to meet some new people, or hang out with a younger crowd, it could be for you. Also, if your looking for something that just pays the bills, and provides the very basic benefits, i.e. health and dental, then this is for you.

    Cons

    The company does not reward employees for positive performance or feedback. Managers are severely incompetent and provide no clear direction on career growth. There are way too many great companies in Seattle to work for then zulily - amazon, Boeing, Microsoft, Nordstroms, REI, the list goes on. The writing on the wall is that the company is just trying to grow exponentially fast, and cut margins whatever way possible(i.e. employee pay and benefits) so that upper management can sell the company(and the company's problems) onto someone else like Amazon. Again, unless your just trying to pay the bills and get very basic health/dental insurance, stay away and dont waste your time. Pay raises are unheard of, you are rewarded with a gold star, and the stock option benefit is a scam to make people believe that the low wages are compensated for by stock options. Your options do not fully vest until youve been with the company for four years. Once coworker applied for another position internally and was replied to after her interview with a macro response that read, "Dear, YOUR NAME...."

    Managers would rather hire anyone off the street then promote from within.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to recognize employee performance. Nothing
