      Current DS culture is toxic. Territory fights between directors (think VPs at most companies), one even threatened to leave with his entire org if he couldn’t report to the CTO directly. Mounting losses make the stock grant questionable. I’d much prefer Walmart TBH, even if it paid less (which Walmart generally pays more than Wayfair).

      Culture comment should be a red flag for all those who are looking.

      On the other hand, politics is normal. Reorg happens at Wayfair frequently - we've had two major ones in engineering already in the new year.

      I'd interview to get practice and determine market value.
