    I worked at One Kings Lane full-time

    Pros

    Really motivated and hard-working folks in the early days, tight-knit teams, strong corporate identity and sense of belonging, opportunity for middle-managers and below to step up and take charge of things.

    Cons

    Singular focus on growth, not on bottom-line health of business. Insulated management team who felt far removed from the day-to-day operations of the business.

    Advice to Management

    More regular all-team communication, transparency into corporate objectives, focus on healthy business economics.

    I have been working at One Kings Lane full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Passionate, kind co-workers. Dedicated, humble leadership. Palpable creative energy. Autonomy and freedom to get your work done where/how you wish as long as you accomplish your goals. Lateral and upward mobility. Competitive pay, great benefits and perks (solid health care plan, discretionary time off, summer Fridays). Transparent communication philosophy. Beautiful, inspiring office space.

    Cons

    Would like to see a stronger philanthropic offering and more continuous education/training opportunities.

    I have been working at One Kings Lane full-time

    Pros

    Being new to the team after being acquired, it feels like the team is really retooling to do some cool stuff. As I've been getting started, the people couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. Seems like a good time to be joining.

    Cons

    I'm sure I'll find them, but haven't yet.
