I worked at Gilt Groupe

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

ConsCompany 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

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… Cons: - not a lot of structure, so if you like traditional organizations, this probably won't work well for you - it… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
