    Avantages

    They try to do events geared toward employee engagement such as “surprise and delight.” There’s some flexibility to work from home as needed.

    Inconvénients

    The cons far outweigh the pros. Senior management is reliably disengenuous; there is little to no transparency, and the company is notorious for cannibalizing initiatives or departments that it randomly decides to write off as dispensable. There is blatant favoritism toward some tenured employees in cushy positions.

    Conseils à la direction

    Don’t just preach your values, learn to practice them with integrity. Treat your employees with respect and courtesy - not just your favored ones, but everyone (else) who continues to be overworked, underpaid, and under-appreciated.

    Avantages

    The culture overall is really great, to name a few of the good aspects: the people, surprise and delights, regular company parties, bagel Fridays, and samples sales (even though they barely exist anymore). However, they rely on this WAY too much.

    Inconvénients

    To name a few:

    1. The company has been focused on cutting costs since the economy came out of the recession and it has been harder to get good product. With this mindset the only piece that they focus on is how to save money and to be profitable. As a direct result, they pay far below industry standard. IF you ever get a promotion, it is less than mediocre and then you have to wait years for another promotion.

    2. I don’t think I fully grasped how little they cared about employee and career development until I came to a company that truly values it. I spent 3+ years at Rue and although I can say I did learn and grow at least a little, I felt like it stunted my career growth more than anything.

    3. HR is unreliable, the turnover that happens on that team is laughable. How can you expect anything to be improved when even they don’t stay on the team long enough to do so? Also, what is the point of exit interviews if you don’t do anything with the information. I have a lot of friends that still worked here long after myself and nothing ever changes.

    Conseils à la direction

    Even though I know this will fall on deaf ears, figure out a way to make your employees feel valued and empowered in their careers. If you do this it will be a lot less in turnover cost in the long run!

    Avantages

    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.

    Inconvénients

    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.

    Conseils à la direction

    Improve the employee benefits and perks to match market standards.

    Avantages

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

    Inconvénients

    - 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 days when there is heavy turnover. Good luck ever getting that time off approved anyway! Long time employees lost weeks of PTO with this change.
    - Next to impossible to get promoted. Don't come here to advance your career.
    - Middle management is awful. Instead of hiring management from outside look internally at your talent for those positions. Bringing people in who are not educated on the industry is a bad idea.
    - Heavy turnover rate because of pay and management
    - Unrealistic goals set for teams. Year over year numbers have been declining but goals keep increasing for teams.
    - The site needs to adapt to the time and become more intuitive. Obvious issues with operations that don't get fixed.
    - Internal tech systems very outdated.
    - Departments need to start working together. Too many teams out of loop
    - They'll sell you on their culture, but HR department doesn't do much to help when serious issues and complaints come up. I've known quite a few people leave because of their bosses

    Conseils à la direction

    - 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 every other week to the customers. Signs of saturation are becoming obvious.
    - Set more realistic goals for the teams.

    Avantages

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

    Inconvénients

    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 so the company can dodge paying people full wages and benefits. For the employees that are made full time, they are expected to work far beyond their job description would suggest. Nearly all of the people in my department (NOT just senior employees but even new ones) would bring their laptops home at night because there simply were not enough hours in the day to get everything done, and when you're working at a flash sale website, there are deadlines that absolutely cannot be pushed off. Most positions are not overtime eligible and managers *strongly* discourage employees who do take advantage of it (I'm sure upper management is putting pressure on mgrs to reduce overtime wages) Working in the BP dept at RGG overtook my life, gave me an unhealthy amount of stress, and made me miserable. For the amount they overwork their employees they don't match it in any sort of benefit or wage. Free bagels on friday are not enough to justify miserable working conditions and treating your workers as disposable. RGG becomes your life. There is no work-life balance in the BP department.

    Conseils à la direction

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