      Pros

      Convenient location (seaport), bagel Friday's, casual dress

      Cons

      No opportunity for advancement, have NEVER heard of anyone getting a raise for any reason, no salary adjustments on top of already underpaid associates, long and unrewarding hours, horrible management culture, useless HR team, management will do everything in their power to withhold your 401k match and referral bonus' upon you giving your notice!

      Advice to Management

      Pros

      Rue Gilt Groupe is an amazing place to work. They put their employees first in everything. We have so many fun food days, family days, catered lunches, and special events to show their appreciation. They are forward thinking, always looking to improve and drive us further. There's tons of growth happening now and will continue into the future.

      Cons

      We've recently merged two great brands and we're still working to iron out our processes.

      Pros

      bagels in office on Friday morning.

      Cons

      Very underpaid with no wiggle room in salaries. Employees are dispensable and the turn over rate is astronomical. Most leave due to the poor management, non-existent training, disorganized and unachievable expectations coming from a very disconnected management team. Underpaid and undervalued employees constantly pressures to push unrealistic sales expectations with understaffed teams that are constantly changing due...
