    I worked at zulily full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    -If working in the photography studio, good work/life balance -Fun atmosphere -Fun Holiday events -Used to be opportunities to move up quicker (depending who supervisor was) -The people

    Cons

    -Very underpaid comparing to a lot of other companies -Company would give fun events to have you forget the low wages (Have to live though...) -Some supervisors in Columbus had less of an idea of what was going on in the daily schedules of teams -Communication was not the best coming from team leaders -After my first year of working there, it seemed they made it harder to move up in the company (stopped allowing people to shadow other positions in our downtime) -Always say Yes mentality (while this can be good, don't constantly drain your team to keep up) -If you do not use your ACCRUED PTO and get let go, they don't pay it out...even when there is a pandemic and let people think for months that they are getting their jobs back, then say they have been looking at numbers for a long while...
