What Employees Say
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.

The company is trying to do something ridiculously hard and ground-breaking in record time. Many things are happening at once, and many bets are placed in the future of the company, so there is a lot... you could do. Leaders here lead by example: you do see Nik and Vlad working hard, getting their hands dirty and pushing to improve things. You can't hide behind titles or politics, either you can show results or you are not going to thrive here. People like the work they do, the perks are amazing. We get ridiculous amount of holidays, you get stock options as bonuses, and the office is amazing.
This is not for the faint hearted, people who don't take feedback well, or people who think that work is limited to your 9-5 schedule. The management is intensely aware of their problems: few... females in exec leaderships, work/life balance and burnout, improving HR, feedback, and communications within the company. I think things have improved positively since I joined, despite the press. If anything the articles have made the company more aware of their problems, and is beginning to double down in solutions and people to improve.
Advice to Management
Keep improving things and hire the right people to keep aligning people in the right direction. Be clearer with your expectations and communicate constantly what the goals and the vision are.
