"Very political culture. Nepotism and promotions go hand in hand here, causing a lot of chaos and incompetent leadership, which senior leadership turns a blind eye to. There is no concern for the employees as humans, only the numbers they produce and most managers don’t coach up, they will deliberately coach out. As you can imagine the turn over is absolutely out of control with both voluntary and involuntary terminations. The average tenure has decreased significantly over the years, with the current average tenure being less than 8 months at best. I have worked her for 8+ years. The company used to be great and very employee centric. With changes at the director level the company has lost sight of the core values they still seem to preach, lacking the action behind them. A company that I absolutely loved has turned into a place that I dread going to. After years of being here and holding out for the light at the end of the tunnel that never seems to come, I’ve decided to part ways and find a company that values human beings. "

"The culture at this organization is interesting, though managersseek to make changes, senior leaders are set in their ways. There is high turn over amongst the staff as they are overworked, underpaid and not appreciated in any way. "

"Wayfair is an interesting company but its culture is lacking. There are few women in management roles, there are few minorities in management roles, there are very few older (45 plus) workers anywhere in the company. Managers are young, very inexperienced, and focused more on how to get themselves promoted, all of which leaves dedicated workers disheartened and disengaged."

"Wayfair promotes gender equality. That aside, it is a very intense, competitive environment. It's also very collaborative. These competing entities create a tricky line to walk, especially during calibration, twice per year."

"Your job satisfaction will be very dependent on which team you are hired into. I've seen wide ranges of culture between teams even within the same department"

"Wayfair creates a collaborative environment where everyone has the seat at the table they earn. There are many women in leadership positions and as they continue to grow benefits continue to improve."

"Not a bad place to start as an entry-level. You will be given a lot of exposure and responsibility right away. That allows for you to get a better idea of your next job/move. However, you will not be compensated accordingly for the level of accountability given, you will likely be micro-managed with changes in scope constantly taking place, and need to log a lot of hours to appear to be making progress against an impossible to-do list. Promotions are becoming harder and harder to obtain, as you are required to demonstrate progress in your currently role AND acting at the ability of THE MIDDLE OF THE PACK of the next tier, for at least 6 months. Senior manager roles almost always require an MBA, yet the company's policy of supporting folks to get their MBA is laughable. Often senior manager roles are filled with new MBAs from select schools (Ivy), regardless of experience, vs promoting tenured and capable managers that don't have their MBA. Having gone to B-School, I can assure you that it doesn't automatically guarantee you'll be successful. Assoc Directors and above need not apply unless you are from a tier 1 business school and worked for McBainGroup (McKinsey, Bain or BCG). My department was almost all women (expect for the male director sitting at the top) so one would have thought there would be comradely and support, but mostly just ppl trying to climb over each other for visibility and ratings (Wayfair uses stack ranking and required bell curves during reviews so there can only be one #1). The company claims diversity between genders, but pull back one layer and that goes amiss. The engineering group is nearly all male, while the merchandising or HR teams are nearly all female. If they did that report based on salary, it would most likely be quite skewed as engineering salaries are quite a bit higher than other teams. Lastly, no women in the C-suite (maybe will change with the COO and CTO leaving - not holding my breath), and only 2-3 female VPs from about 16 in the company (this could have changed since I left).

"Wonderful parental leave policy; 3 months for main caregiver and 2 weeks for secondary caregiver. Up to 40K in fertility assistance."

"Women are treated and considered equally up until the director level- then you see massive imbalance in gender diversity up from there. "

"Before joining, please do your research about the team and the hiring manager (look for their background, experience, do some research if they have families). Your experience is entirely dependant on your manager. My boss, boss's boss, & boss's boss's boss don't have families and hence my work life balance suffers. The culture promotes drinking and outside office hours socialization. "

"Flexibility depends on your role, but can be very good. Maternity leave policy is fine. Good for your average company, not good for a technology company. "

"It's a boy's club. Multi-billion dollar company without a single female on it's executive team. 9-10 dude running a company where the customer is 70% female. "

"There are good benifits, however the work life balance is challenging. While the hours can be flexible, the expectations are unreasonable and unattainable on a normal 8 hour day."
