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

    Pros

    Company seem to be growing and they continue to implement new ideas to grow in a competitive e-commerce industry. Culture and people have been great for me so far. Offer many avenue to improve your skills via training.

    Cons

    Compensation in tech seem to be ok. Benefits especially 401k can be improved, 50% for 4% is really low these days. A fitness center at work also would help with workers health and busy lifestyle.

    Advice to Management

    Improve the employee benefits and perks to match market standards.

    I have been working at Rue Gilt Groupe full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - good work life balance for some roles - Bagel Friday's - Decent benefits, health care is a bit expensive. 401K match is non-existent.

    Cons

    - Company is so focused on saving money to be profitable that the pay is far below industry average across the board. Buyers get little to no bonuses. Tech is severely underpaid and overwhelmed. - Company claims to always give employees the best benefits like unlimited vacation. This seems like a nice perk when you first hear it. But was another example of RGG saving money instead of having to payoff accrued vacation...

    Advice to Management

    - Pay your employees more. It should be obvious by now that this is the number one reason for turnover. The inequality in pay between management and associates is astronomical. Tech and other positions are leaving every month for hire paying roles in the industry. - HR needs to start listening to employees complaints instead of worrying about the next company lunch party - Need to stop running the same brands and offers...

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

    Pros

    Great people with common interests, laid-back office and no strict dress code. Occasional free food and parties.

    Cons

    The BP department is what I would consider the workhorse of the company (they basically coordinate the flow of info between all of the other departments on their respective teams) and yet they are not treated with such importance. Most employees come in as contractors, making pathetic wages with no benefits and management keeps them on as temp employees for several contracts, stringing them along with no transparency...

    Advice to Management

    Stop investing in side projects until you can reduce the egregious employee turnover rate by paying your employees what they rightfully deserve.

      Pros

      Rue Gilt Groupe is an amazing place to work. They put their employees first in everything. We have so many fun food days, family days, catered lunches, and special events to show their appreciation. They are forward thinking, always looking to improve and drive us further. There's tons of growth happening now and will continue into the future.

      Cons

      We've recently merged two great brands and we're still working to iron out our processes.
