Producer, 1385 Broadway, 3rd Floor, New York, NY - October 22, 2015
Ideel, was once called Ideeli, before it was acquired by Groupon. While working for Ideeli, I gained a tremendous amount of knowledge regarding the E-commerce process. I have done everything from receiving samples, to full fledged producing. One of the many things I loved the most about Ideeli, were the people. The work environment was so much fun, yet we all were hard working, intelligent people whom got things done, and done extremely well. Ideeli also, truly believed in their employees, and wanted everyone to be successful in their career paths. They gave me the opportunity to prove myself, and advanced me after doing so. From seeing Ideeli reach the Fortune 500 list in my first year of its employment, to moving studio locations, losing investors, seeing sales drop due to an over saturated market, to lay off after lay off, then finally being sold to Groupon, has been not only a learning experience, but also, an educational tool. You can never take things for granted, and things change- you just have to be willing to adapt and take the challenge head on. Which is what I have done, and thrived at doing so. It is just simply time to move on.
