      -Sometimes they have mandatory overtime up to 60 hours especially during the holidays, but if you like money that should'nt be an issue.

      Pros

      I'm on week 3 at Zulily...they have a really in depth training program, benefits start as soon as you start and my boss is great!

      Cons

      Since I'm just starting no cons yet. I'm working remote and getting used to the time difference between working with co-workers 3 hours behind.

      Pros

      Until this company realizes the value of their employees at all levels, they will continue to lose great team members, especially in the creative department. Pros: - one of the best teams I've gotten to work with. Great people, gear direct manager, no real complaints on that front. -if you are based in Ohio they are fully remote for the copy team, no office to work at there. This is easily their only good perk.

      Cons

      -upper management suffers from a severe disconnect between the results they see on the site vs. the amount of grind and burnout it takes to get the site where it is every single day. They also have a disconnect on how little they pay, with the CEO once casually bringing up $200 jeans as though everyone buys apparel at those prices. -the pay is a joke compared to the other retailers in the same city who offer similar jobs. Other places start at 20/hour minimum for copywriting, zulily started me at barely over 15/hour and I'm pretty sure it's not much better by now. Might as well work for target or Costco at this point since they're starting around the same pay and don't require a degree. -no sick days. You must choose: longer vacation, or save up time in case you get sick. -the level of responsibility and consequences for the merchandising team is not nearly the same as what's expected of copy. Merchants are able to ignore or rudely respond to our simple questions with no consequence from leadership. If the copy team acted the same way we would be reprimanded. This overall imbalance creates a somewhat hostile work experience for the copy team. -whatever they tell you the goal is, expect to only do that for 1/3 of the year or less. Most of the time it's elevated. Why? Because people keep quitting and the company can't ever keep the copy team fully staffed for all the reasons listed above. The amount of work also keeps increasing. The team suffers from burnout on top of the low pay. Other places pay more for a more sane workload. -there is not enough diversity on the merchandising team, leading them to try to push to sell offensive items with excuses like, "this is a best seller" or "this wasn't an issue in the past". Copy ends up having to possess legal knowledge, IP knowledge and cultural/racial sensitivity knowledge all while being underpaid.

      Pros

      Good salary for a single person with no kids... The culture is amazing. The structure is decently consistent.

      Cons

      There isn't much opportunity for people of color to work in the office areas (area manager, operations managers, senior operations, etc). It's funny though because there is plenty of diversity on the floor, in production and support roles.

      Pros

      Pretty good middle managers in tech, chill teammates, great collaboration environment

      Cons

      Asks from internal stakeholders can be a bit ridiculous, and often they don't really know what they need. That doesn't stop them from randomizing engineers and demanding immediate satisfaction.

      Pros

      Used to have a fun office pre-quarantine. Used to be a positive and inspiring place to work before original CEO left. Gets you a QVC discount, but doesn’t make it worth the job. Some employees and teams are professional and engaging.

      Cons

      As a company that serves women, it doesn’t value women in leadership. Countless female managers have left in the last two years as Zulily continues to hire male, former Amazon leaders. CEO is former Amazon so he doesn’t recognize the toxic environment he continues to perpetuate. The female leaders in place are either just as toxic, or don’t have the voice and influence to enact a cultural change. This company has sucked the life snd happiness from a lot of people. There are always folks who are willing to do battle in these atmospheres, but as a person who gave them four years of my life as a manager I can confidently recommend looking elsewhere for employment. Sorry to say. It was great while it lasted.

      Collaborative and committed to improvement

      Pros

      Supportive and collaborative working environment, clear focus on customers, leadership team committed to listening and improving based on feedback. I’ve found a real commitment here to supporting work/life balance as well, key for working parents — no late night or weekend demands or emails from managers which is the norm at other tech companies.

      Cons

      Can be a bit siloed — but that’s to be expected in a remote environment; over-rotation on homegrown platforms and systems that aren’t efficient.
