  • Extremely fast paced and a lot can be learned while in your role (in 17 reviews)

    Pros

    Extremely fast paced and a lot can be learned while in your role.

    Cons

    If you aren't capable of keeping up with changes in direction then this is not the place for you. They have been acquired since I was employed so it's possible a lot has changed.

    Pros

    Gilt has a great core of managers and good hourly employees. You always feel welcomed among your peers and there are great culture events.

    Cons

    Due to the business model, you must be aware that there are a lot of last-minute changes to your workload and you mist adapt on the fly.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the engagement push that's been in effect the last few months. Employees want to know as much information about the operation as possible.

    Pros

    Had the opportunity of working with all members of the Gilt City team. It is a great work environment and employees are constantly innovative. As an intern I was mainly responsible for contacting vendors and putting together all the small details prior to the event. We also had weekly meetings with top member of the Gilt team for advice.

    Cons

    It was very long hours which became hard after having no pay. It was also hard to stay busy while at work if there wasn't any upcoming events.

    Advice to Management

    Great job working with all the interns to make sure we were making the most of our experience. With our end of the internship project we were able to show everything we learned throughout the 3 months.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Gilt Groupe (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It was great while it lasted. I'm not sure the tech team commands the respect it once did, but there's still some great talent there to learn from.

    Cons

    The future of the company is uncertain. The business is very difficult when competing against companies like Amazon with ridiculous scale.

    Pros

    Smartest group of people I've had the pleasure to work with. Great team environment and a true passion to build something amazing.

    Cons

    Very tough to make profitable....continuous focus on cost reductions can get tedious. Industry is very competitive and negatively affected company value.

    Advice to Management

    It was a great run working there, and HBC got a great deal.

    Include interns in meetings
