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

    Pros

    Nice location
    Employee discount
    Relax work schedule

    Cons

    Projects are a joke. Hard time lines with no input from engineers. Take the pieces of agile that management likes (light on documentation, just enough QA, release after every scrum) without the other (the release is always broken, scope creep, no flexibility on timelines or features, implementation details created by stakeholders or managers, etc.). It's a mess.

    Management provides little career guidance or growth. Engineers get stuck in their current positions and have to leave the company to grow. This causes a high turnover rate.

    Advice to Management

    Hire leaders into your management positions.
    Create career tracks.

    Pros

    Management is knowledgeable and has a good vision for the future. Fun place to work.

    Cons

    Moving from an hourly position to a salaried one can be challenging. Sometimes career growth path may not be clear.

    Advice to Management

    Share as much information as you can possibly do, you never know how a little knowledge on things to come can impact the life of an employee.
