    I have been working at zulily full-time

    Pros

    Great culture and atmosphere. A great place to start a career in the e-commerce space. Being a part of a rapidly growing company that is making history. Ability to move up quickly if so desired and you are willing to take on extra responsibility. Strong leadership (especially in Merchandising) with years of retail experience before coming to zulily. People passionate about serving up the very best product to our customers.
    Love this company. One of the BEST places I have ever worked. Taught me how to be more flexible and open to change, because there is a lot of it. Able to be innovative and put your ideas to work. Some may not work, and that is ok...that is the beauty of the business. Getting to work with a lot of talented folks. Also, getting to support and coach with people new to the business and see them move up in the company. Very rewarding!

    Cons

    Compensation at all levels needs to be addressed. Especially those at the lower end of the pay scale. Transportation costs and parking are very, very expensive and hourly and low salaried employees can barely make ends meet.
    Long hours evenings and weekends. Management is working on this, but until the Studio is able to get on or should I even say ahead of schedule, Assistant buyers and buyers continue to work long hours and have to sacrifice personal time to make sure events are complete. This has been an ongoing issue for as long as I can remember and something in the process needs to be fixed and soon as this is causing a lot of frustration and burn out. We are losing good people to other BIG retailers in the area due to this and compensation.
    Not allowed to "work from home" which for a "tech" company, should be allowed with guidelines. Unless you live in Seattle, commute times in and especially out of the area are BAD, really BAD. Management needs to be flexible with hours because of this.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees about compensation and transportation
    Pay them better-at all levels.
    Fix the processes/problems with Studio not completing events at least a day ahead so the Merchandising team can have a work/life balance.

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

    Pros

    Great environment, nice new building. Gym across the street for free. Great cafeteria that's open for breakfast and lunch.

    Cons

    Pay is low compared to similar jobs in Seattle. They are a start-up company but should be able to start compensating their employees better now. Management doesn't always work together well and this has become very frustrating.

    Advice to Management

    Work better together. Be a team and do what's best for the business, not for you and your own team.
