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

    Pros

    Great location with beautiful views. Great people to work with. Relaxed dress code.

    Cons

    It's like working in a sorority. Promotions are based on friendships and being in the "cool kids" club. No appreciation for relentless hours of work. Minimum requirement is 60 hours a week. Pay is low with no bonus opportunity. Environment is negative and toxic, stress level is high.

    Pros

    Fun work environment, great people.

    Cons

    THERE IS ZERO COMMUNICATION. Nothing at all that pointed to being laid off. Last minute we get called into a meeting and to be alerted “some of you will be leaving without a job”. THANKS JEFF.

    I worked at zulily full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I loved the team I was on, great people and a fast-paced work environment. The offices are large and on the water, nice views, full kitchen's coffee machines, etc.

    Cons

    The pay for assistant buyer or account manager is less than other fashion and retail companies for the same type of work in the Seattle area (Nordstrom, Amazon, etc.). Getting promoted can be difficult, there are a lot of assistant buyers but not enough associate and buyer positions to allow for career growth. I hear that experience greatly differs depending on the team you're on, some people really didn't like the buyers they were paired with and it made for a tense work environment.

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

    Pros

    -great people to work with -lots of innovation -wfh 1-3x a week (depending on “business needs”) -sometimes you’re allowed to drink at work (that has decreased since zulily was bought out by qvc/qurate) -definitely a great starter job, learned a lot -collaborative team environment

    Cons

    -pay and compensation isn’t competitive -being over worked and underpaid. Assistant buyers are required to publish events/disable or enable products at 6am or log on at night/weekends if necessary. The low pay doesn’t compensate the on call nature of the job -TOO MUCH CHANGE. When upper management thinks that we need to go in another direction we are expected to drop everything (and the hard work we’ve already put forth) and flip the new idea out in no time. Upper management has no idea how much effort this takes. -favoritism. If you don’t kiss bitt and drink the kool aid, don’t expect upper management to take you seriously.

    I worked at zulily

    Pros

    Great people, management experience, problem solving, able to work with senior management.

    Cons

    Nothing really - there were just a few personal preferences that I didn't like. You are in the fulfillment center for the entire shift.

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

    Pros

    Met some great people, Sample Sale, office space is nice.

    Cons

    Management does not seem to care about employees. Only cares about the numbers. No work life balance. No raises or bonuses and paychecks/salaries are way below what other companies are paying. Management makes a lot of money but relies on others to pick up the slack with no recognition or reward.
