Pros

Great career opportunities if you are hard working and can find your own path. Amazing work environment - everybody in the team is customer focused and people are always up for collaboration in order to make the customers lives easier. Stock options - A great way for employees to be invested in the company. Autonomous teams - It's kind of a double edged sword. When the team lead is good at their job the autonomous team is a super efficient way to work, but unfortunately due to our amazing growth some teams are unorganized due to the autonomous teams and could use a better lead. You can bring your pet to work!

Cons

The salary is still not the best when compared to the market, e.g in banking. Especially when taking into account the average salary rise within the last year and the consumer price index. Sometimes it does feel like older employees get better benefits for the same job. E.g better salaries, oldies protect each other and new positions are given to older employees even when someone else could be a better fit. More assistance could be offered to team members by the team leads in order to find the career path they are interested in. Not everybody can build their own path 100% and it's completely fine :) But these are just small things to improve on and overall the pros outweigh the cons massively.

Advice to Management

The salaries should be remapped in accordance with the market situation, inflation and average salary levels in Estonia.

Amazing work environment - everybody in the team is customer focused and people are always up for collaboration in order to make the customers lives easier.

Pros

- great office environment - supportive colleagues - dogs in the office - awesome mission - flexible working hours - opportunity to work from home - lots of events and hobby groups - career opportunities and opportunities to show your talent

Cons

- danger of burning out - slowly getting more corporate (inevitable considering the size and it’s growth) - salary should be higher considering the responsibility what info is provided to customers (but it’s arguable as you get stock options. So it’s your own call what you value more)

Pros

Cohesive and adaptive company culture. Caring about their customers, products, and people. Full transparency and meaningful values, not just empty words. Smart, creative yet approachable and friendly people.

Cons

You are 100% responsible for proactively building your optimal structure in a less structured organization. Easy to lost track of all the endless information at the beginning, which is kind of normal.

Caring about their customers, products, and people.
