Featured Review

Former Employee - Client Relationship Specialist

I worked at Grow Financial part-time for more than a year

Pros

The people and environment are very friendly. The pay is good, and there are many opportunities to move upwards or laterally within the company.

Cons

Internal communication is not great, and the company uses third parties to handle much of their business. This means customers sending payments to places thinking it's coming straight to grow, then... being confused when this isn't reflected in their account. On the employee side, it means constantly signing in to different applications to search for things like a check deposit or mobile transfer. And don't get too used to any one system, because as soon as you do it will be replaced by something "better".

Advice to Management

Talk more to the people on the floor handling the day-to-day problems before making sweeping changes, and be honest with your staff about what changes are coming, and how you plan to implement them.

Current Employee - Copywriter

I have been working at TransferWise full-time for more than a year

Pros

I've worked in at many companies, in many different industries. This is far and away the best place I've worked. We provide a legitimately helpful, beneficial service to our clients, with no downside... to anyone. My colleagues are some of the most intelligent, dynamic, kind people I've ever met. The culture is open, inclusive, not rigid at all.

Cons

Every medium-large company has a certain amount of bureaucracy. TransferWise is no different. But it has less of it than I've experienced before. People who need a ton of structure — who... need to be told what to do to do their job — might struggle here. Being a self-starter is rewarded. Also there is not necessarily a steady, prescribed path to moving up. You move up if you do good work, but there's no formula (years + KPIs, for instance) that guarantees it. At least not that I've seen. I actually like that. I understand why some may not.

Advice to Management

Try to keep doing what you're doing.
