    I have been working at zulily full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Empowerment to fix customer's problems
    - Relatively lax on how you accomplish goals
    - No se dress code

    Cons

    - Management is a mess and many will have HR complaints or people leaving on them
    - Their system for PTO is a mess and they have no handle on how to appropriate time off
    - Constant changes are never fully tested before releasing to reps on the ground floor so there are always major disppointments
    - Almost no actual refunds given out due to their convoluted policies and set
    - Highly recommended against shopping there

    Advice to Management

    - Higher people with actual empathy who have experience or are willing to do the dirty work
    - Don't pick favorites. One half of your team is not more important than the other

    Pros

    amazing co-workers, casual atmosphere, good managers

    Cons

    overworked/underpaid. Poor work/life balance. Execs: please invest in your employees in order to reduce turnover. You're wasting money training people the in's and out's of a job who are just working there to gain experience, and just planning to move to another company that will pay them better.
