I’ve personally heard some negatives on Wayfair. I think there was a thread discussing it somewhere here

40% though. The money is telling me yes.

funny

Well if the money is calling then go for it. Given you’re an SM, you’d prob be able to boomerang back if things don’t work out

smart

What role allows you to work on true growth strategy while also having P&L ownership? I’d make sure you’re doing DD on time spent on growth strategy (more marketable and interesting IMO) vs. something resembling brand or category management. Brand or category management can work for you too, just realize the type of companies that would headhunt you would be Walmart, Amazon, Target, Chewy, etc. vs. FAANG.

Really good points to consider, thanks that makes sense.

Is this a SM or associate director role at Wayfair? What team? Worked there for a year out of college

Associate director role, how is the work & work culture?
