    I have been working at Warby Parker full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Extremely fast paced and dynamic work environment.
    Everyone is extremely motivated to build a 100+ year brand.
    We take our work seriously but we don't take ourselves too seriously.
    You seem to learn something new everyday.
    Unparalleled access to thought leaders in nearly every single business discipline from traditional/online marketing to supply chain to technology.
    Your co-workers will become your friends.

    Cons

    Loud and open workplace. We prefer it because it allows for more idea flow and conversation but there can be quite a bit of distraction throughout the day.
    Salads are served every Wednesday.

    Advice to Management

    Where did all the everything bagels go during the company wide Wednesday morning meeting? Also, we should bring back the book reviews!
