    I have been working at Rue Gilt Groupe full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    bagels in office on Friday morning.

    Cons

    Very underpaid with no wiggle room in salaries. Employees are dispensable and the turn over rate is astronomical. Most leave due to the poor management, non-existent training, disorganized and unachievable expectations coming from a very disconnected management team. Underpaid and undervalued employees constantly pressures to push unrealistic sales expectations with understaffed teams that are constantly changing... due to turnover.

    Advice to Management

    If you would like to retain talent, address the elephant in the room and pay them a fair, livable, salaries. Staff teams with the support they need and the training they deserve when employees are a constant revolving door.
