I have been working at Wise full-time (Less than a year)
-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.
-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)
I applied online. I interviewed at Wise (Budapest (Hungary)) in February 2021.
It was through HireVue, I got 7 pre-recorded questions, then I had to answer 3 questions from customers in writing.
When I got a question I had 30 second to think, then I had to start answering. Between the questions I could take my time, and I could decise when to go on with the next question.
