    Pros

    Ample opportunities for employee development/advancement
    Upper management truly values employees
    Laid-back atmosphere
    Flexible work schedule
    Competitive salary
    Fun company lunches
    Stable company with job security

    Cons

    Not too big of a deal, but it would be nice if the company observed a few more holidays.

    Advice to Management

    I started working at HauteLook in the company's first year, so I have seen it change and grow over the last few years. The company's leadership has done an excellent job of managing this change so that the company continues to be a great place to work.

  3. "Great place to start a career and develop with a growing company"

    Pros

    - Company has a very youthful, energetic vibe from management level all the way down through the staff level.
    - There are numerous examples of people who have hired in at entry level and worked their way up the ranks and into new areas of the company.
    - Co-workers are very hardworking and committed to doing a quality job. People are also a lot of fun to socialize with.
    - Senior management has high but realistic expectations.
    - Acquisition by Nordstrom provided additional financial stability and opportunities for the company, but it still maintains a fun start-up atmosphere.
    - Employees believe in the products/services we sell and always stay focused on improving our customer experience.

    Cons

    - The start-up environment could be challenging to individuals who require clearly defined standards and expectations to be successful. People who are most successful here are very adaptable and thrive on change.
    - As a growing company, most areas are probably still short staffed. Thus, relatively long hours are the reality for most management and professional employees.
    - We should offer some type of employee discount on merchandise or offer sample sales for employees at certain times during the year.

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

    Pros

    Tons of young people work here, which makes this a great starting place for recent grads in the fashion and design fields who are looking to get their feet wet in the fast-pace environment of fashion and e-commerce.

    Cons

    There are tons of young people who work here - haha. That being the case, it can often seem as though the environment borders on high school with its clique-ish groups. But ultimately, there is a group for everyone here, so not to worry. Its not as terrible as high school and can be a very rewarding and fun place to grow as a young professional.

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

    Pros

    The tech team is one of the best I've had the pleasure of working with. Open source shop that strongly encourages giving back to the community. A lot of 'A' Players.

    Cons

    Not very many perks for a tech company though it's getting better. Vacation time could be better. Medical benefits are so-so.


  7. "It was very educational. I learned a lot about the processes and functions of office work and how to prioritize my tasks"

    I worked at HauteLook full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Consistent hours and good medical benefits.

    Cons

    Deadlines can become overwhelming but, with dedication and focus you can achieve them.

    Advice to Management

    Management cares about their employees. The only downfall they may have is they need better communication.
