    Pros

    Great benefits and company culture. They know how to look after their staff. Young and enthusiastic team. Additional pay if you work US hours. Plenty of transparency and exposure to senior management & the CEO.

    Cons

    Very heavy workload for the number of staff they employ. Booking time off can sometimes be quite difficult. Working US hours once or twice a month, so difficult to have work/life balance during these weeks (but you get paid more).

    I have been working at Currencycloud full-time

    Pros

    It's really hard to find a company that is big enough to be stable but small enough to be agile. With Currencycloud I think I've found that company. The technologies here are current so I won't be getting stale any time soon and the culture is second to none. It's a breath of fresh air to work with and for people who are class leaders in their profession. Without a doubt a great company to be a part of.

    Cons

    Not a huge fan of Apple Macs, would prefer Linux (or even Windows) on a MS laptop.

    I worked at Currencycloud full-time

    Pros

    - Lots of smart, friendly people - Decent compensation - Good work/life balance - Decent office and location

    Cons

    - Senior Management run the company like a dictatorship: dysfunctional disconnect between members of the exec and the rest of the company - Too many self-interested managers who pay lipservice to developing staff but are simply out for themselves, will throw you under the bus in a heartbeat and couldn't care less about career roadmaps or supporting their team - Lack of meaningful, job-based training - Very political atmosphere - too much perception is based on cosying up to key members of senior management and it's down to managers to filter up good performance, which so often they don't, rather than it being a true meritocracy - Strategic direction has the turning circle of the Titanic and members of senior management can't agree amongst themselves! - Lots of departmental silos - Too many people are overworked and under-supported

    I have been working at Currencycloud full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Currencycloud has a great culture. It’s supportive of people and has been especially good during Covid with weekly CEO meetings and lots of new online fitness and wellbeing benefits. It’s really nice to be surrounded by smart people who are solving difficult problems. Everyone cares about the company, the customer and each other.

    Cons

    There is a lot going on and perhaps too many meetings.
