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

    Good for international students. Hires fresh talent and sponsors visa for all its employees. Good work with a lot of learning opportunities.

    Cons

    Low pay as compared to other competitors (Specially if you’re living in Boston! ) While most teams are really good, work culture is too bad in some of the teams to hold good talent. Very low employee happiness/satisfaction in these few teams and no appreciation for the hard work!
