Growing startup

Software Engineer (Current Employee)
New York, NY (US)

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

ProsThe people are amazing and there are a lot of interesting projects to work on. From an engineering point of view, it is open to new ideas and you get to learn very quickly about fashionable new technologies.

ConsCareer development has not quite been thought through in a meaningful way. While there would be Director and VP openings once in a while, upper management usually hires from outside.

Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on developing talent and leadership from the people you already have. A lot want a bigger role in the company and are forced to find this elsewhere.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

A lot of good and potential struggling under lack of vision

Director (Former Employee)
New York, NY (US)

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


Pros: The company has a great start-up, entrepreneurial energy which is inspiring and invariably forces you to learn and adapt quickly. The name alone is… Cons: Very little to no structure or vision. There is a stated matrix-like structure but in reality it almost feels like a fend for yourself structure.… Advice to Senior Management: Spend more time in the office, craft a clear vision/direction and reward innovation… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More

The perfect place if you're motivated and under 25. Otherwise, you must have that energy.

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


Pros: Intelligent peers, and demanding of excellence. Great experience. Cons: The job takes over your life, in reality and on social media.… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
