The Culture at Gilt Groupe is one of the most inspiring and creative environments an individual can grow, learn and work in. I learned the very complicated execution of daily flash sales and the importance of recognizing a product's life cycle once introduced to the e commerce market place. I had the pleasure of working with some of the most innovative and culturally intelligent people on the planet. Unfortunately, because the company is so new there is always an arc of trial and error and not having past metrics to evaluate so that good decisions are made, I found people placed in management positions would often come to naught because of lack of experience in specific areas. However, I loved the fact that everyday was a new path on the journey to perfection.
