How are promotions handled at Wise?

Pros

The benefits are amazing There is home-life balance

Cons

I was hoping TransferWise would be different than my last job, but this has turned out to be just another office job that's disguised as a fun place to work. There are little to no promotion opportunities in the Tampa office. They do not punish people who are sexually offensive or who commit some kind of sexual harassment-- A simple 'I'm sorry' is enough for a long time employee here to keep his job since he's got tenure it seems he's protected. Most frustrating though is that you have to be friends with someone/dating someone in another department to get promoted otherwise you'll be stuck in customer support. They don't hire based on skill but rather social clout and how many 'side projects' you do which is up to preference and luck as to whether your 'side project' is taken seriously enough to land you a promotion. The work culture is not maturing at the same pace that the company is growing it seems.

Advice to Management

Improve internal hiring practices to avoid favoritism. HIre based on skill and not just friendships. Post internal jobs for everyone to see and avoid just allowing departments to hire friends. Have harsher punishments for sexual harassment.
