    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Fab.com full-time

    Pros

    Great exposure to online retail and content production, opportunity for young employees to jump laterally across the organization, a storied time in NYC startup scene.

    Cons

    Mismanaged growth, long hours, inappropriate social environment at times. Honestly, almost all of this stems from the combination of fast growth and lots of managers promoted to management for the first time in their careers and given no training.

    Advice to Management

    Train your managers, cultivate an environment of respect, pay your younger employees fairly and provide them with training they so desperately need.

    I worked at Fab.com full-time

    Pros

    all of the great benefits that former employees mention have been gone for years. there is 1 day a week that you get free lunch.

    Cons

    they have no clue what they are doing. pch international has no clue what they are doing. any residual "cool factor" that is remaining from the successful days of yesterday-year is gone. no one outside of the nyc startup scene knows what fab is or does. don't work here unless you enjoy collecting unemployment.

    Advice to Management

    just end it. it's time. put it out of it's misery.

    I worked at Fab.com full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Fun perks, including 2 options for catered lunch every day and lots of social activities; brilliantly talented group of young people; awesome design aesthetic.

    Cons

    High-level issues were never addressed and, rather, always seemed to be fixed with a temporary bandaid type of solution.

    Advice to Management

    More transparency with employees; less lies about financial situation; more opportunity for growth; balance perks with higher compensation amounts.
