Current Employee - Associate Consultant

I have been working at Lab49 full-time for more than a year

Pros

Great place to grow- projects are constantly changing to keep up with newest tech trends so you are always learning new skills Head of EMEA is a great leader and has set an inspiring vision for the... team Nice team which is very collaborative management makes time for all employees Business is growing a lot which is very exciting- lots of room to move up Flexibility to work remotely on occasion if needed CEO and Founder is very smart and well respected in the industry

Cons

No cons- though there is lots of work so if you are lazy and do not like to work hard and learn, Lab49 is not for you!

Advice to Management

Continue hiring people like new Head of EMEA who are passionate about the business and cares deeply about employees

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.
