    RGG has handled the challenging times during COVID so well and has continued to stay connected to the employees. Culture feels very family oriented and everyone cares about each others well being. Alot of opportunity to make an impact and a good amount of autonomy within your role

    I have been working at Rue Gilt Groupe full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    • Awesome tech team • Positive/supportive culture • Fast paced and dynamic • No limit to vacation time (and you're encouraged to use it) • Competitive pay • Flexible remote/WFH policy (even before COVID) • Excellent work/life balance • Lots of opportunity for growth • Individuals are empowered to assume ownership and make an impact • I honestly look forward to working every morning

    Cons

    Not as tech focused as other places I've worked. Focus is primarily on sales and marketing and tech can feel like a service to other groups within the organization.

    Thanks for providing your feedback! We are proud of our RGG culture and keeping it alive while remaining remote is very important to us. I'm happy that you received robust training and manager support and we are hopeful to be back in the office at some point this year as we recognize the importance of in-person interactions especially for our more early career roles.
