    I worked at Klarna full-time

    Pros

    Sold as a fast paced company full of opportunities.

    Cons

    Klarna insanely overworks people and burnout cases are plenty. If you fail, because you've been working at 200% capacity, the management takes it hard on you, without even appreciating your hard work. There is no work-life balance.
