An Insider's view of MeUndies

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The MeUndies vibe is gracious. Employees take time to thank co-workers - from saying thanks for helping with a big project to washing each other’s silverware. Our “Shoutout” slack channel is always pinging with thanks and praise. I love that the team shares “thank you” moments. It’s not forced or cheesy; but authentic, genuine gratitude.

Lauren

Senior Recruiter

What projects are you most excited about?

My favorite part about working at MeUndies is that the opportunities are endless. We’ve learned that our customers are just as excited about new and innovative products as we are, and this year, the product team is ready to bring the innovation! While underwear will always be the foundation of our brand, the sky is the limit.

Britney

Merchandiser

How does the company support your career growth?

Aside from an annual learning & development budget, our team utilizes a platform called CultureAmp. It tracks everything performance based; from 30/60/90 day check-ins, continuous feedback, 360 reviews, to annual reviews and exit interviews. This is to make sure your time at MeUndies is always spent learning and growing along the way.

Bree

Senior People Operations Associate

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

The most innovative ideas tend to come from the team when presented with high-level goals such as business outcomes to drive or problems to solve. It is often helpful for leaders to facilitate conversation by creating some structure and ensuring everyone contributes, but to increase creativity avoid being prescriptive.

Andres

Chief of Staff

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

The amount of collaboration that takes place in a normal day is truly something special. Teams recognize the importance and benefit of learning from each other and that can be seen constantly. I feel incredibly lucky to be apart of such a collaborative and sincere environment.
