      Pros

      the people you work with are awesome for the most part. fast paced, and easy to make changes

      Cons

      because you move so fast mistakes get made and some new strategies don't stand a chance . it can be hard to move within the company. one bad boss could totally suck the life out of your career there. the pay is not great in comparison to some other companies. However, this was a great place for me to get my foot in the door as a buyer and i learned a lot.

      Great Company Culture... For Most

      Pros

      I loved the team I was on, great people and a fast-paced work environment. The offices are large and on the water, nice views, full kitchen's coffee machines, etc.

      Cons

      The pay for assistant buyer or account manager is less than other fashion and retail companies for the same type of work in the Seattle area (Nordstrom, Amazon, etc.). Getting promoted can be difficult, there are a lot of assistant buyers but not enough associate and buyer positions to allow for career growth. I hear that experience greatly differs depending on the team you're on, some people really didn't like the buyers they were paired with and it made for a tense work environment.

      Pros

      Young company with a start up mentality Fast-paced work culture Company is growing everyday (new President started this year) You also get work from home days after a few months

      Cons

      Limited career progression for Assistant Buyers Compared to Nordstrom and Amazon - Pay is really low High turnover of Assistant Buyers over the last few months Systems that are provided to us are a bit outdated (tech could be improved)

      Pros

      Relaxed work environment - you can wear VERY casual clothing here! Very nice co-workers Fast Paced Changes can happen overnight - they call it zulily-speed

      Cons

      Poor benefits and 401k match Entry level positions in certain departments are reasonably valued for pay, but getting any type of raise after you are 'in' is near impossible. HR unwilling to let go very toxic middle managers who do not project the companies objectives Parking is pretty pricey - $180 a month If an issue does arise, it isn't taken very seriously Changes can be expected to be completed overnight
