    I worked at One Kings Lane full-time (more than an year)


    -Very lax wfh policy; which is what discretionary time off actually is
    -Awesome team members; great family feel
    -beautiful office and great commuter location off of civic center bart
    -recent improvements in tech infrastructure have made it feel much more seasoned
    -decent brand recognition for a mature start up; those who know OKL really love it (but since it only caters to high society women over 35, not many do)
    -great place for analytics technology and development
    -talent farm. Definitely a place with growing room for your skill set(s).
    -very relaxed 'sassy' atmosphere might offend some, but I found it consistently hilarious (it always felt like 'all in good fun')


    -sharing the building with Twitter. If you consider that the protesters and terrorist threats are solely for them, their huge sign on the building casts an ugly shadow over the 7+ other companies in it...
    -tenderlion location. Outside is grimy
    -dynasty-esque atmosphere, now that the excess talent has been cut off (20%summer lay offs) and or left (20% yearly attrition that I saw)
    -very little transparency into the politics of management--my manager was very open about it which is the only reason why I can mention it at all
    -there's so much fun going on during the day that it's hard to work (normal hours) which while being a great problem cuts into work/life balance
    -the loss of CEO Doug Mack, CTO Arun Rajan, and the hundreds of other quality talent over the years reflects poorly on C level staff and screams loudly "we don't have a unified goal" which, regardless of political transparency at the C/management level, trickles down to IC employees making scope creep, forgotten solutions and problems, and project 'do-overs' a consisent status quo

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Honestly most of my cons except the last bullet were easily ignored on a day to day basis and somewhat a pleasure to deal with, but it did make working there feel like having an affair on real life with a concubine. More importantly, the shift in vision from Doug really hurt and really changed the cultural atmosphere. It was a bad idea to focus on profitability alone; it's better to achieve it than to drive to it.
    Additionally, middle management needs to work on people development rather than progress towards a consistently changing goal. I think that's a primary reason why many, including myself, have decided to leave.
