Does Wise provide assistance to those with physical or mental disabilitiies?

Pros

I had an opportunity to learn a lot about financial services around the world. There were a lot of surprises on how it all works. The office is one of the coolest and came along with very good perks right before the pandemic. The onboarding process is fun, difficult and crazy at the same time. It really helps an employee to reflect themselves and look back see the growth. It offers opportunities to take action and resolve problems and that it's also okay to fail. I like the general happy and positive attitude with fellow colleagues and opportunities to pump into others and have a chat. It's possible to do it on all levels including bumping into a CEO for a quick chat. There are endless possibilities on how to improve your working conditions like extra office and IT equipment. The team is on top of their game and when quality levels go own action will be taken. I feel like most wisers really encourage you to learn and when you fail, it's accepted but not discouraged. There are trainings and workshops for mental health and allowing everyone to speak (and sometimes even their mind).

Cons

The feedback culture can get overwhelming at times, especially when people don't know how to do it. The biggest change was switching to WFH environment where we communicated on Slack. I'm sure I can say that almost everyone suffered from mental health issues when working online. As teams are growing with the new hiring the whole atmosphere turned into sometimes I experienced in high school. There's a lot of comparison to other colleagues which is not subjective in any sense at all. It kinda felt that when I shared feedback it didn't go down with our team. So the whole process of working here can be quite confusing as it's not a startup environment and there's a mix of all different cultures and people.

Advice to Management

I'd advise working on how your employees share feedback with each other and take that into account how people grow in this company.

How is race or ethnicity talked about at Wise?

Pros

-Wise is a super diverse and fair company, giving equal opportunities and salaries to different nationalities and genders. Wise is liberal, deeply against discrimination and racism, which is super great -The community is amazing, everyone has a superb attitude; everyone helps each other, everyone is open to feedback (both negative and positive), and we all work together, as a team to achieve something big and make both our customers and employees life better. -There are great benefits, like a monthly office lunch credit, company shares after some time, generous salaries, paid travel benefits etc -Growth and improvement is highly encouraged, with separate budget for relevant courses and learning; working towards promotions is always supported, salary benchmarks with raises happen every 6-12 months, and rewards are given based on performance.

Cons

-The company is becoming more and more corporate-style, meaning that the "lower levels" and positions have less and less power to change everyday work; expenses are cut from the places it's most needed (like recruiting to lower level positions, to ensure that those teams have enough people to ensure a positive work mentality); money is gaining more and more importance in the company, leaving less space for family-like atmosphere, working together, regarding everyone equally etc. -As we grow, more and more people around the world uses us, but the staff doesn't seem to grow equally -Customer Support Agents have to work more and more every month and it doesn't seem to change greatly...

Advice to Management

Enhancing corporate style and the importance of money might result in bad employee morals > bad services provided to customers, plus Wise becoming a less tempting place to work at, which in the long run might cause more damage (mostly to the company's yet still really great image)

Wise is liberal, deeply against discrimination and racism, which is super great
