A constantly improving, open workplace

Analyst (Current Employee)
San Francisco, CA

I have been working at One Kings Lane full-time for less than a year

ProsAs we grow, the company has adjusted to growing pains referenced in other reviews. Our new HR team (which we didn't even have a few months ago) is implementing new compensation systems, our facilities team is catering free lunches and providing other perks, our day-to-day work is not as hectic as it once was as we scale our workforce, and our management team is TOP NOTCH in making sure our voices are heard and advice acted upon. I've worked at one of our competitors as well as a few other companies and while OKL is not perfect, slick oiled machine yet (like Google), it is getting there and improving every day!

ConsManagement makes a lot of top-down decisions without seeking feedback from employees at the ground level. I normally agree with their decisions, but it would be nice to be included more.

Also, it can feel like an "older" company compared to internet companies like Google that are geared toward a 20-something workforce. OKL feels more like a 30-something workforce.

Advice to Senior ManagementRamp up the employee perks and listen to lower level employees more.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
