    I worked at ideeli (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Loved the people at the company.

    Cons

    Not much diversity at the company.

    Please consider more men to the positions.

    I worked at ideeli full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Beautiful offices, great staff. Great learning opportunities.

    Cons

    Bureaucracy and red tape that would put congress to shame.

    Advice to Management

    Rather than blaming the engine how about firing the driver. Also pay more than lip service to the core "Values".

    I have been working at ideeli full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Free snacks, you don't have to spend money on eating out because breakfast is basically provided for you. There are a lot of minor perks that would make any simple person think this is the best job ever.

    On site manicures

    Cons

    Don't be fooled by the perks, management expects you to start your day early and leave late. There is absolutely no work like balance.

    Mean girl (and boy) environment. Lack of communication.

    Pros

    It is a job to get your foot in the door

    Pros

    Ideeli is a very Interesting place to work. Everything is done right there. Makeup, shooting and the final artwork. The people who work there are very friendly and professional.

    Cons

    It seems like working for this company requires a lot of very long hours and for a relatively lesser pay scale.

    Advice to Management

    I get the impression that management is not too involved with the day to day operation. This is not necessarily a bad thing but I think if they see the hard work that the employees, do they might be rewarded a little better.

    Pros

    Fun start up environment, a lot of room for growth if you work hard, you will learn a lot and have a lot of responsibility

    Cons

    A LOT of turnover, unorganized, no HR team , always understaffed people leave and are not replaced, no stability, long hours

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

    Pros

    My team of coworkers were great as was my direct manager! We had a decent benefit package and would have occasional happy-hour meetings and they offered weekly yoga for some time.

    Cons

    With such fast early growth and a challenging business model things got a bit chaotic. Strategies shifted frequently. Many people outside of my department had opinions (whether qualified or not) about or work which slowed the process and compromised the quality. Raises were rare.

    Advice to Management

    Communication is key and too many cooks in the kitchen makes a mess. Also wages should be more competetive.

    Pros

    I was able to move up the ladder, form close relationships with upper management and learned a ton. The people at ideeli are inspiring.

    Cons

    Nature of the business made it difficult.

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

    Pros

    Despite fast growth, the company did a good job communicating with employees. Weekly town hall meetings and frequent all-employee happy hours were great for morale.

    Cons

    the business model itself was a little challenging as we have seen with many other deal sites plus, while the company tried many different channels, it never was able to grow outside of the core fashion category.

    Advice to Management

    great job selling the company.
