A month in the life of Warby Parker
We create an environment where employees can think big, have fun, and forge ties with the community.
Black Tie and Burgers
Employees dress up in fancy duds and eat dinner at the office (cheeseburgers) while a string quartet plays. Next: we head to Grand Central for a scavenger hunt.
A pair of master caricaturists come to the office. Everyone gets a caricature drawn. Day ends in laughter and tears. (Just kidding! Only laughter.)
Wine Awesomeness comes to school us on wine during our weekly happy hour.
We learn what to pair with our favorite office snacks—from a spoonful of
to ClifBars (a tasty Malbec).
Bagel Me Up, Scotty
Our weekly all-team meeting is accompanied by breakfast from Murray's Bagels. (It's important to carbo-load before meetings).
We launch a capsule collection with one of our favorite designers. Launch party ensues.
So Much Lunch
Lunch is catered at the
office three times per week.
Vietnamese! Cajun! Thai!
Speaker: Dan Viederman
Our speaker series brings the best and brightest right into the offce. Dan Viederman, the CEO of international fair labor firm Verite, stops by to talk about corporate responsibility and labor rights.
We shoot a mini-film featuring our new core collection
Land of Eternal Spring
To celebrate their third anniversary with Warby Parker, a group of employees flies to Guatemala to visit our non-profit partners.
Served Family Style
Warby Parker employees are happy employees. One reason? We offer great benefits.
Straight from the newsroom
Want an outside angle? See what the rest of the world is saying about Warby Parker.
“Started in 2010 by four friends at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, Warby Parker keeps prices low by designing its own geek–chic frames, cutting out licensing fees, working directly with suppliers and eliminating markups by selling directly to consumers online, who provide their prescriptions.”
“It would be shortsighted for an eyeglasses company not to think of its four–legged customers. That's why, on April 1, purveyors of hip eyewear Warby Parker unveiled their newest line of glasses: Warby Barker. Now, man's best nearsighted friend can finally take advantage of low prices on classic frames.”
“As co–founders of Warby Parker, Neil Blumenthal and Dave Gilboa shake up the eyewear industry to provide affordable, stylish, high–quality glasses for people all over the world.”
“Undeterred by menacing skies that culminated in a thundery downpour, family and friends of the eyewear enterprise Warby Parker trekked to SoHo last night to fete the opening of the company's first flagship store.”
“Warby Parker sends an electronic welcome packet with the company history, core values, press clippings and what a new employee should expect the first day, week and month. The night before starting, new employees get a call from their direct supervisors to make sure they know here to show up and when.”
