    I worked at Rue Gilt Groupe full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The team of people who helped build Gilt.

    Cons

    HBC corporate management has diluted the soul of what Gilt stood for. The energy, the excitement of being a part of something that sought to offer customers a new retail experience evaporated with the new management placed by HBC.

    I have been working at Rue Gilt Groupe full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Amazing time off policy, great cross banner discount, some nice people

    Cons

    Awful management, low pay, rigorous work schedule, terrible upper management, grunt work. Gilt used to have an amazing corporate culture, but it lost it once it was acquired by HBC. It's a very clique-y environment.

    I worked at Rue Gilt Groupe full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Young Company with a lot of cool benefits, like endless vacation, sponsored events and great discounts. That's about it.

    Cons

    Overwhelmingly understaffed. Work Life balance does not exist. People above you do whatever they want, when they want, and you are a bottom feeder. No one helps you grow internally here if it's not directly benefiting themselves.

    Pros

    Everyone there is very nice and the environments is very welcoming and you right right in. You are respected but the upper management and they really care about your feedback of the company and future improvements. Weekly meetings so you can know what the state of the company is.

    Cons

    Non-stop work. You will never go home and this job will consume you.

    I worked at Rue Gilt Groupe

    Pros

    Everyone is super dedicated and passionate

    Cons

    They do not reward their employees. Apparently, management is trying to offer employees more promotions and increase in salaries but a lot of the employees that have been there longest are getting pushed out which changes the entire culture.
