    I have been working at Wayfair full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    - Finally back to massive growth mode after the re-branding
    - Growing, dynamic industry
    - Fast pace
    - Tons of responsibility and autonomy
    - Salaries competitive with local market
    - Equity/stock for everyone

    Cons

    - Limited formal learning and development programs
    You have to fish around for good mentors (in addition to your immediate manager) and really need to drive your own career path

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more in people. You’ve made good strides the last few years but have a ways to go. Get a real learning and development team in place. Also, while most departments now earn market rate compensation and enjoy great benefits, weed out the pockets in the org where comp is still low relative to market. If you can’t afford to, then move those jobs out of Boston to somewhere where cost-of-living is lower.
