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

    Pros

    Breakfast in the mornings (cereal, toast, avocadoes), free soda/coffee throughout the day. Team lunch ordered in on Fridays and open bar with beer/wine on Friday evenings. Plenty of events organized such as speakers, yoga sessions, comedy nights, Halloween/Christmas party, summer days are great.. If you want to take on more responsibility, you won't be stopped. Very open culture, people are friendly. Strong feedback culture, people will tell you if you're doing something wrong which is great for personal development. They will also tell you if you're doing something right. Not hierarchical at all (which isn't ALWAYS a positive when you need someone to do something for you..). Liberal work from home allowance. People team cares about the employees. Nobody checks what time you're in/out of the office. People are keen on you not working too much, very healthy approach to work-life balance.

    Cons

    Mid-level compensation. Analyst career progression is very unclear. Analyst compensation motivation is very unclear. TransferWise analytics are not particularly rigorous, do not expect to develop more intense data science/stats skills on the job.

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

    Pros

    - Still a strong culture of ownership and getting stuff done - People genuinely care about each other - very little internal politics - Clear mission/vision of where company is going

    Cons

    - Leadership quality is generally strong, but can be uneven depending on function - Bit more process / "structure" starting to creep in given a large company - Given flat structure, advancement opportunities vary widely depending on function. - Pay generally at middle of market, rather than towards the top.
