    I worked at Monese full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Amazing culture and diverse staff. Opportunities to learn and expand beyond your existing skills.

    Cons

    Empty promises and culture of fear from leadership. Things could be great one day with celebrations of how well the company is doing and promises of pay increases and becoming millionaires from your share options to shutting entire offices the next day and sacking key members of staff. Then CEO goes from sacking half the remaining staff to having a company meeting about future of the business seemingly hours later. No empathy or remorse. If you speak to anyone at risk of being fired you could be fired. Very ruthless. No one feels safe. If someone mentions glassdoor reviews, there are threats of legal action. Company has been unable to stay competitive and is shutting down any innovative ventures in a bit to stay alive.

    I have been working at Monese full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Work environment is great, passionate colleagues to work with every day. Variety of tasks that make one's days different and challenging. And there are dogs running around in the office.

    Cons

    It's open office, so it can get noisy and difficult to find a quiet corner if you really need to focus.

    I worked at Monese for less than a year

    Pros

    Well the company has few good things such as free snacks and you get to work on a mac. Besides that company is a complete mess when it comes to management, benefits and culture. Also you'll be able to meet so many talented people and get to learn with them. Product is nice but no one knows which path to follow when it comes how to improve it.

    Cons

    Managers do not really know how a company should be runned and how to keep people happy. There are no perks at all, the salary is all you get. CEO keeps saying the same things repeatedly week after week like if he was a great motivator. He's not. Promises are never kept. Company handles a collective dismissal with a 5 min videocall from the CEO and the next thing he does is inviting everyone to another meeting where he is talking about the company's direction. Completely unaware how to deal with a issue of that size. Salary gaps between people on the same function.
