    I have been working at Wayfair full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Finally back to massive growth mode after the re-branding
    - Growing, dynamic industry
    - Fast pace
    - Tons of responsibility and autonomy
    - Salaries competitive with local market
    - Equity/stock for everyone

    Cons

    - Limited formal learning and development programs
    You have to fish around for good mentors (in addition to your immediate manager) and really need to drive your own career path

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more in people. You’ve made good strides the last few years but have a ways to go. Get a real learning and development team in place. Also, while most departments now earn market rate compensation and enjoy great benefits, weed out the pockets in the org where comp is still low relative to market. If you can’t afford to, then move those jobs out of Boston to somewhere where cost-of-living is lower.

    I worked at Wayfair full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    snacks, event tickets, cool co-workers, centrally located, good entry-level position.

    Cons

    mindless repetitive work, poor mid-level managers who are not promoted on merit but on subjective management protocol, i.e. they like you or they don't- has nothing to do with your work ethic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Come up with some objective goals in order to allow people to advance. "flying by the seat of your pants" is no way to manage a company.
