    I have been working at zulily full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Everyone outside of management is lovely. Even most of them would be wonderful if they laid off the Kool-Aid.

    Cons

    They have hired a bunch of former Starbucks Store Managers to be the creative Editorial Supervisors. They all think we make Coffee drinks for a living. There is an institutionally ingrained lack of regard for the craft of photography. You will work through most breaks and lunches and be expected to be happy about it. They will write you up if you try to leave 15 minutes early even if you did work through all your lunches and breaks.

    Advice to Management

    Learn about the craft. The wheel has been long a very long time. Perhaps that is because it doesn't need to be redesigned.

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

    Pros

    The employees are young and naive, willing to work themselves to the bone for zero recognition. Everyone starts out excited and motivated, soon to be sucked dry by long hours and little pay.

    Cons

    Terrible unqualified gossipy management, no career development, less than living wage pay, $20/day for employee parking, no transportation assistance, unaffordable cafeteria, absolute nightmare of a work place. Go somewhere else. Somewhere where they will appreciate your skills and treat you like a person not a robot.

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue. Hire some smart people for once and recognize those who are working themselves silly rather than turning the studio into a popularity contest based on sucking up rather than talent and hard work.
