    Disapproves of CEO

    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.

    Advice to Management

    This could take a while.

    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.

    Advice to Management

    I could write a novel.

    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.
