    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Product is really good and with a clear value to customers. People is very honest. Great colleagues. Opportunity to have an impact in whatever you want, it's up to you to decide where your responsibilities end. Most of the projects are challenging and fun. You and your team will prioritise and decide what to do each quarter. Very team oriented, lot of amazing people.

    Cons

    - Salaries for Software Engineers are bellow average for a Fintech; value added by the engineering work deserves a better compensation. - Not for you if you just want somebody to tell you what to do/build

    I have been working at TransferWise full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Strong compliance program, collaborative work environment, high opportunity for self- and career development, smart coworkers with great personalities

    Cons

    Not really a con, but I'm required. Environment is fast-paced--mastering work requires subject matter expertise, good problem-solving skills, great communication skills, instinct for process development, and facility for relationship building. Challenging, but very engaging and fun.
