    I have been working at Wayfair full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    It's a great place to learn, be challenged, and develop your career. There are endless opportunities to lead projects, learn from intelligent colleagues, and develop new skills, all in an exciting, very fast-paced environment. You feel supported by senior leadership who actually want to see you succeed and grow and will give you opportunities to lead and drive strategy for the business. Wayfair also has a fantastic company...

    Cons

    Leveling/titling at Wayfair is a little interesting and doesn't always seem to match with years of experience. Most people seem to come in at the same level, regardless of the prior years of experience they have, and they tend to down-level people quite frequently from where they were at previous companies. That being said, you're given the support and tools to build your career and move up the ladder pretty quickly.

    I worked at Wayfair full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Wayfair is a fantastic company if you're a software engineer who's looking to keep quiet, and not speak up when management treats you like garbage. And it excels at finding leaders who are willing to go the extra mile to be untrustworthy and make you feel like your job isn't safe (and for real, it's not).

    Cons

    Let's talk. The company has been growing like crazy, and one thing that was never thought about was "can we actually hire at a sustainable rate, and scale accordingly?" The answer was no on both counts. Software engineers at Wayfair have a history of disappearing. People who enter labs have an especially low success rate (70% make it through, and less than 50% last a whole year). It's basically their way to run...

    Advice to Management

    There is literally no hope for this company unless the board decides to fire most of the C-level executives and directors. This place is a lost cause.

    First, I wanted to thank you for providing feedback. Second, I am very sorry to hear that your experience was far from ideal. I know it can be hard to give feedback if you feel management is the problem, but leadership would love to learn about these issues to refine the Wayfair employee ...

    Pros

    - Constant opportunities to seek and take on challenging work - Culture has a high focus on career development through both real-time feedback, weekly check-in's, and professional development conversations - Failure is not considered negative, but instead celebrated if you are able to articulate you learning - Peers are invested in making the business succeed, creating a great x-functional dynamic - Results and...

    Cons

    - Some voice the fast pace as a concern, but for those energized by change this is actually a pro - As we grow, scope for each individual role becomes more specialized…again, could be considered pro/con to some

    Advice to Management

    - Continue to find outlets to mentor and maintain top talent - Keep a high level of transparency

    Pros

    Effective and trustworthy leaders, competitive salary, outstanding benefits, transparent from top to bottom, incredible access to data/tools, filled with driven and intelligent people.

    Cons

    Becoming such a large player that there is more bureaucracy than before, change and shifts in strategy are consistent, team structures can evolve quickly and difficult to settle into a groove.

    Pros

    Fast paced environment, excellent benefits, opportunities to grow and learn

    Cons

    Some disconnect between main office and satellite offices. Not always aiming to be on the high end for pay.

    Advice to Management

    With rapid growth, ensure newly hired managers take time to learn the culture and engage with their teams before attempting to make changes needlessly.

    Smart people, invested in creating the best work. Very collaborative.

    Cons

    They are not known to be the highest paying. You could probably make more somewhere else, I probably could, too. But I can't put a $ value on enjoying going to work, each and every day or believing so wholeheartedly in the owners, their morals and their drive.

    Advice to Management

    Raises for everyone!

    I have been working at Wayfair full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    I've been at wayfair almost 6 years now. I've seen a lot of changes - mostly rapid growth. There's no other place to fast track your career. There is so much to do all the time and a lot of people to learn from. Work environment is positive and leadership listens to issues and genuinely cares about employees

    Cons

    Transparency is big at wayfair but feedback isnt given as frequently as it should be. Only top performers get real substantial pay increases.

    Advice to Management

    With the company scaling as quickly as it is - its important to put the right leadership in place to support employee growth.
