What Employees Say
I have been working at Kobie Marketing full-time for less than a year
- Kobie Marketing isn't perfect, and by no means is it polished, but therein lies the opportunities. Kobie understands what it needs to do and move towards, and the opportunities that are available... to teammates are endless in terms of getting there. If you want to take on challenging assignments and learn from them, Kobie Marketing provides that. This was actually my main reason for coming to Kobie, as there's a lot that can be done to improve Kobie. Perhaps if you're set in your ways and are resistant to change, you wouldn't last here. - Work Life balance is as competitive as it gets. As long as you're getting quality work done, there's no problem in regards to you working from 'home' even though you may be in the Bahamas. - Whenever a new opportunity arises, it can be fun seeing the overwhelming positive energy everyone pours into it, such as a potential new client or a fundraising event.
- Sometimes it feels like there isn't nearly enough being done to address internal issues and inefficiencies. There is a lot that needs to be fixed and optimized within our internal systems and... databases. - Different information lives in different places and systems without any cohesiveness in how they're presented. - There's still more work that needs to be done in transitioning from a 'talking' culture to a 'doing' culture. We're great at identifying our problems, but the time spent in identifying the problems are wasted if we can't consistently create an action plan that everyone can get behind.
Advice to Management
- Senior leadership, keep up the great work in receiving feedback and taking it to heart. - Perhaps look into acquiring an business systems analyst and/or an organizational analyst to help set... up parameters on what workflows should look like, how organizational structure is managed, etc.
I have been working at TransferWise full-time for more than a year
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.
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.
