    "Engineering excellence ruined by toxic product culture"

    I have been working at Revolut full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Engineers are experienced and genuinely interested in building a good product. If you don't have a technical background, you will pick up a lot of new knowledge. The product moves very quickly and your work can have an impact of millions of people who use the product every day. Everyone is very motivated and hard-working, even if that motivation is driven by fear.

    Cons

    The company is only interested in making money. There is zero interest in understanding or solving customer problems, even when those problems are caused by our product. The approach to problem solving is totally top-down and backwards from the rest of the industry. You will not learn anything at Revolut about product development that will be applicable at other companies that are customer-oriented. You will only learn how to survive at Revolut. On a personal level, it really is a toxic workplace without trust or mutual respect. I think a lot of my colleagues are happy with their jobs because they believe the compensation is good and the experience will further their career, but I do not know a single person who enjoys their work whatsoever. Diversity is also a major issue. Less than 10% of managers are women. Fix this. Finally, the equity compensation system was changed recently and new hires should understand that it is much less beneficial than before. If you are considering taking a job at Revolut, read the fine print carefully and push for cash.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Revolut full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Base salary is above average. - If you are lucky you are involved in interesting projects. - Some microservices have been well designed and tested.

    Cons

    - Overall culture in Revolut is at the same time chaotic and toxic. Once you join the organisation you are labeled as "B player" and the first day the HR and manager put on you already high pressure by saying that it's not for everyone to be promoted to "A player" by the end of probationary period and if you fail you are not going to be confirmed in the company. - You are evaluated on the basis of unrealistic KPIs decided by unexperienced managers that have been long enough in this company to be promoted and the company expects that you work 24/7 to accomplish these KPIs. So expect to work 12-15 hours every day and during weekends with no extra pay for overtime hours. - Technical decisions are taken in a rush most of the time taking short cuts which can be risky. - This company pretends too much from yourself and this has affected negatively my private life and I accepted the first offer on the table.

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

    Pros

    + exceptionally technically strong engineering team, you can learn a lot + scalability challenges to solve + international experience with business travel between offices (pre-covid) + competitive salary + some teams have a lot of greenfield projects

    Cons

    - engineer's career growth depends highly on CTO's personal decisions, process is unclear - management (C-level) is pushing their ways of doing things, employee's opinion does not matter much - if you're unlucky you might get moved a lot between teams (and line managers) - in some (not all) teams PO/LM is pushing tasks without considering team's capacity so either you need to overtime or push back and get low performance scores - retention is low, nobody cares about whether you enjoy or not your work until you decide to leave - stock option bonuses are not really that good - there is no clarity on when and how much of those you'll be able to actually sell and company almost deliberately makes it hard/unclear for employees to sell their shares - performance review process is still unclear and is constantly being changed - work life balance highly depends on the team and LM but overall is low in the company - management is always trying to push for extra KPIs regardless of limited resources
