If anyone has done an interview at Wayfair before, please give me some hints or advice. It's for the algorithm and analytics teams. I didn't get alot of traction job searching when I graduated last semester but I'm glad things are turning around. Thank you :)

    Pros

    Nice office, free snacks. None of the important things when looking to expand your career.

    Cons

    They don't invest in your development. HR doesn't communicate with you until the end.

    Fun Atmosphere.. "Benefits" they offer don't make up for low pay. Leads aren't great.

    Oct 5, 2021 - Key Account Manager in Brunswick, ME

    Pros

    Fun atmosphere if you're a fan of large office environments. Ping Pong table, giant snack wall with free snacks, beers offered occasionally for happy hour. Very rarely will you have to take work home with you.

    Cons

    Sales performance can come down to which leads are assigned to your book of business. It's a numbers game, so you just have to make as many calls/connections as possible which wears you down. Compensation isn't great for the amount of work you have.

    Pros

    benefits, organization has a very rigid structure. free snacks and nice office.

    Cons

    pay was terrible. it's a millenials paradise with fake 'perks' to keep people working hard but giving no reasonable compensation. Half the managers never managed before and it shows.
