Former Employee - Digital

I worked at LEWIS Global Communications full-time

Pros

Good PTO work life balance

Cons

Poor executive leadership, old school values, poor HR

Advice to Management

Very interesting you would put up job postings after furloughing and cutting hours to a majority of your US team without being communicative. For a CEO that has two leadership books, their has been... poor leadership in regard to the COVID-19 situation and overall communication skills. There are a few leaders at this company that are amazing but unfortunately the bad outshines to good. If you are looking to work at a place that values diversity and inclusion, this isn’t the place for you. In today’s climate it’s important company’s are working towards representation and a inclusive work culture. This company won’t even make a statement on the BLM movement. They need a serious overhaul of leadership and a lot time is needed to be reflective of this companies values.

Current Employee - Customer Support

I have been working at Kraken Digital Asset Exchange full-time for more than a year

Pros

At first playing around with cryptocurrency was my hobby, then it became my passion, but when I started at Kraken it also became a career and an all encompassing lifestyle. The entire company is... fabricated around the crypto ethos. When I started at Kraken it was extremely obvious that this company was different than anywhere else I had ever worked. First off, I work from home. That might not mean much to everyone out there, but it means the world to me. I’m watching my child grow up first hand. I can take a 10 minute break to read some books with them and it’s just absolutely life changing. Secondly, it’s so casual! Not in an “unprofessional” way, but in a way where no one is talking down to anyone else and it's super easy to send anyone a message and introduce yourself (then immediately ask for help of course =D). Third of all, I’ve noticed that the entire team wants to hear people thinking critically. Management wants you to call something out if there’s a better way to do it. It’s a startup! All of the answers haven’t been found yet because a lot of the questions haven’t even been asked! With a team of almost 800 worldwide agents, someone out there has something to contribute on every subject. Lastly the team. If you’re online there’s someone else online. Any day of the week, any time of day. That’s what a truly worldwide team looks like. It’s strange at first to wake up and feel like you’ve missed a 12 hour work day, but you get used to it. Crypto never sleeps. Neither does the Kraken. The team here is extremely diverse, with so many different backgrounds, experiences, countries of origin, languages etc. It’s truly amazing to work for Kraken. I bleed purple.

Cons

It can be hard to manage your own work-life balance. Usually the brick and mortar building you work in takes care of that when the lights are shut off and the door is locked. You need to be able to... turn it off yourself when working remotely. Not everything is documented because the company is so new. Learning is mostly done via word of mouth or reading, so it can be hard for a visual learner (although that's already being fixed). Things get done a little slowly sometimes. The understanding is that it's because the backend has so many security precautions but in an ideal world something would be recommended, done up and implemented in a few weeks. Instead it can take weeks or months.

Advice to Management

You've got an amazing team behind you. Don't be afraid to delegate much more than you already have. Now that we've bigger, communication is even more important than ever. Any notice for big events... is better than finding out after the fact.
