I have been working at Gilt Groupe full-time (more than an year)

Pros

The people are amazing and there are a lot of interesting projects to work on. From an engineering point of view, it is open to new ideas and you get to learn very quickly about fashionable new technologies.

Cons

Career development has not quite been thought through in a meaningful way. While there would be Director and VP openings once in a while, upper management usually hires from outside.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus on developing talent and leadership from the people you already have. A lot want a bigger role in the company and are forced to find this elsewhere.

    The perfect place if you're motivated and under 25. Otherwise, you must have that energy.

    Pros

    Intelligent peers, and demanding of excellence. Great experience.

    Cons

    The job takes over your life, in reality and on social media. Otherwise it very much depends what division you work for. Not diverse.
