    Pros

    There are some good, smart people here. Unfortunately, they don't stay long because they are chased out by immature behavior and the obvious favoritism from the leadership.

    Cons

    Favoritism runs rampant, and it starts with the CEO. The CPO does nothing to stem this behavior, and engages in it herself. The HR Business Partners in Boston lack the knowledge and experience typically required for the role, leading to behaviors that have led others in the company to refer to the HRBPs and CPO as "the mean girls". RGG claims Kind and Collaborative as core values, but they rarely actually lives up... to these claims. RGG operates in a rash manner, constantly reacting with short-sightedness and a complete lack of willingness to invest either time or money in long-term solutions. Innovative is a company value, but the company doesn't practice it; innovation is an original or new method or approach - but the product produced is clearly a reaction to the market rather than leading it. They confuse being scrappy for being innovative, and employees are forced to be scrappy because of the refusal to invest in long-term strategies or solutions....when you don't have the right tools to do your job, you're forced to slap together solutions with whatever insufficient tools are available. Aka scrappy....not innovative.

    Advice to Management

    Start actually living the values. Invest both time and money in long term solutions. Stop chasing the products and initiatives that competitors are coming up with and actually BE innovative. Stop promoting based on favoritism.

    I have been working at Rue Gilt Groupe full-time

    Pros

    The break room has cereal, milk, soda, coffee, and cold brew. Employees love free beverages.

    Cons

    Cereal is great, but it would be great to have additional snacks such fresh fruit and fresh vegetables.

    Advice to Management

    Keep serving cold brew all summer long.
