    Pros

    DTLA Office, ability to Work from Home, Employee Discount, Great people. I appreciate how HauteLook creates social events, and do little things such as bagel Friday.

    Cons

    Pay is below standard, constant turnover, low morale, benefits are standard, loss of identity ever since merging with nordstrom.

    Advice to Management

    Create more incentive to create better morale. There's not much to look forward to on a daily basis, and hard work goes unappreciated.

    Pros

    Feel appreciated, nice people, cool employee perks

    Cons

    very mundane working system. They have it set up and organized where you do the same exact thing everyday. Also I don't know why it's necessary to get the whole departments emails. It makes it harder to stay on top of my emails when I get 800 a day. They hire a lot of employees so you have a lot of help, but that contributes to the low pay.

    Advice to Management

    Pay better, maybe people would stay there longer.

  9. Great atmosphere, fun environment, super fast paced - fast fashion.

    Pros

    Great work environment, good vibe, young professional coworkers. Good atmosphere. Workload is always challenging but never boring.

    Cons

    Very fast paced. Surprisingly low rates compared to industry standards.

    Advice to Management

    Try to involve your employees a little more, they would be more than happy to help.

    Pros

    Nordstrom owned, great benefits, great working environment. Everyone works hard and the company is always sponsoring fun activities to balance out the fast paced work. They promote growth opportunity within the company and want to help you grow with the company.

    Cons

    Poor communication between the different departments. Although every dept constantly works with one another, there is a sense of hierarchy. One dept thinking they are priority than the other which often cause tension. There is also long hours especially Fridays or before holidays, which can be understandable but just mentioning as a heads up.
