Warby Parker Reviews

Warby Parker is an innovative company that is prides itself upon providing people with prescription glasses and sunglasses at more than affordable prices. I am a senior keyholder advisor at Warby Parker, working here for a little over a year and a half. The friendships I've made through working day to day at the Newbury Street store location here in Boston have been one of a kind. Warby makes it very easy to connect with your fellow employees and customers since the encourages friendly interactions and letting you show your true colors without sticking to the script of a business persona. However, Warby does lack diversity. It is very LGBTQ+ friendly, but the same treatment is not given to minorities. I am the only minority woman at my job currently and many customers treat me poorly in comparison to my non person of color employees.

I enjoyed my first couple years immensely. As the company prepared to go public I do feel that the NYC stores began to feel a shift in the employee experience. The HQ is also greatly lacking in diversity, it's very sad to see such a monochromatic office!
The company culture is focused around doing the right thing and treating others well. I worked in tow stores and found that this philosophy went beyond treatment of customers (e.g. 'always presume positive intent') and into the management and corporate. Working here helped me learn to treat others well, because that's a requirement of the job and the store culture.
