I worked at Gilt Groupe

Pros

Employee discounts on Gilt merchandise. Quarterly allowance to use on Gilt.

Cons

Company lacked clear focus or consistent vision. An extremely top-heavy organization, Gilt was filled with incompetent senior execs who lacked basic experience in consumer internet and ecommerce. The result was a chaotic and toxic environment where self righteous VPs made unreasonable and asinine demands that were completely unreasonable and created a series of distractions. The ratio of "talkers" to "doers" at Gilt was astonishing.

    I have been working at Gilt Groupe

    Pros

    - the company is breaking ground in the e-commerce field
    - lots of very smart people to work with and learn from
    - many opportunities to advance and learn - career progression is very fast here
    - training and development is getting better as the company grows
    - lots of communication - both formal and informal

    Cons

    - not a lot of structure, so if you like traditional organizations, this probably won't work well for you
    - it does not have as much of the start-up feel as it used to, but it is less chaotic as a result
