The purpose of a performance review is to give impressions and feedback on an employee’s work. They can also be used to coach new skills, motivate, resolve conflicts, and create future goals. Although performance reviews were created with good intentions, they are the source of widespread dissatisfaction across most organizations. According to a Workforce Management survey, 218 HR leaders reported that only 5.1% of the respondents were satisfied with their performance management process. Gorilla is fortunate to be one of the 5.1% thanks in part to a performance management system that not only is incredibly effective but also fits our culture.
At Gorilla, we continuously look for ways to share our expertise within the Magento community—and beyond. Recently, we published a thought leadership piece on Magento site performance.
Site performance is fundamental to the ecommerce experience. Optimizing your site can lead directly to increased online business results and higher rankings in search engines.
Gorilla’s Creative Director Ethan Smith, Lead Front-End Developer Bryan Herhold, Senior Magento Architect Michael Grosser, and Director of Technology Igor Rafalovsky discuss the pivotal roles of design, front-end and back-end development, and hosting in Magento performance optimization.
Specifically, the whitepaper gives insight on:
• Design considerations that directly impact site performance
• Front-end development best practices to boost page load speed
• Integrating 3rd party systems, such as ERP systems, that should be addressed from a back-end development perspective
• The critical role that hosting plays in site performance

Gift registry is usually a rite of passage of sorts for those preparing to get married or have a baby. The in-store gift registry experience—walking down store aisles, shooting a barcode scanner at boxes—invokes a “got to have it” feeling. What’s even better for shoppers, of course, is the thought of not having to actually pay for the products they are picking out.
Joining the Gorilla team has its perks. You will be able to enjoy a work-life balance, a dynamic organizational culture, and the opportunity to work with experts in the ecommerce industry. We strongly believe in giving our people the opportunity to grow and develop in their career.
Choosing a platform that best fits your business can be challenging, but, if done correctly, can lead to significant increases in revenue and cost savings. The following are 9 tips and best practices for selecting a platform that meets your business objectives and supports your channel’s long-term growth strategy.
Experience of your internal team
The most powerful software, built by the best agency in the world will fall flat if a company doesn’t have internal buy-in for the required resources. The implementation of an ecommerce platform will require time from your executive team, marketing, merchandising, customer service, operations, and IT departments. A team that has previously faced and solved a range of problems can help to reduce risk throughout your project. If your team lacks experience, it’s important to have a level of trust that allows you to lean on your partner for the necessary support and collaboration required during the re-platform.
