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

    Pros

    Has the brightest group of developers I've ever seen!
    Management is open to and gets excited about new ideas and technology
    The culture is great! You can personalize everything and be yourself.
    Everyone is friendly, professional, and good at what they do.
    There's always something new to work on - never a dull moment!
    No politics or hidden agendas - people just want to get things done

    Cons

    Expect many, many, many late nights ...
    Expect to be called on weekends (even if you're not on-call/support)
    You will get asked to work on many projects with short deadlines at one time and then asked why you haven't been focusing.
    Project planning is minimal and every project will be filled with scope creep
    Pay is low
    Expect raises to be around 3% of your base salary
    No bonuses
    No comuter reimbursement
    Expensive parking

    Advice to Management

    Hiring from outside seems to be the preferred solution instead of promoting people.
