Wayfair provides a great opportunity to enter into a booming industry, even if you have little to no experience in the past.
Career advancement is readily available, but you have to be able to speak openly with your manager and other teams in order to get there. Management works really hard to check in on team members and make sure they have an understanding of where they want to go, etc. The thing is, there's no set path. You can move laterally, you can move up, but YOU are responsible for making it known you want to, so you have to find the time to check in with other teams, etc. It can be hard, but it makes it more fun. Getting to direct my own career advancement has been fantastic and a great opportunity to move between teams.
The growth of certain areas is really exciting - particularly the growth of the Virtual team (working remotely). I expect there will be continued growth in this area.
The hardest part of the job is just how much change and how fast the company works. The EU is a growing market, so it's constantly changing and developing. It can be hard to keep up with policies and procedures.
Lots of opportunity to advance
