    I have been working at Revolut full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - You work in a very energetic and dynamic environment. Things are happening fast here.
    - Everyone is really passionate about the company. It's not a 9 to 5 kind of job. People love it and are giving everything to drive the changes
    - You have a real impact and consistently have a feeling of accomplishments. This is different from working in huge corporations.
    - Direct and honest culture. People raise issues when they see it, are honest to give direct feedback. So things actually move faster here, people are not afraid to speak up.

    Cons

    - Work-Life Balance. Well, no one is making you stay longer. But as you get so enthusiastic about the work, you tend to do that on your own. Also, you're always overwhelmed with the ideas about your job, so you simply don't want to delay it.
    - Direct Culture. It works great for me, but some other people feel pressure and are not used to that style.

    I worked at Revolut full-time

    Pros

    You may get some stock options if your performance is deemed as "good" by senior management / founders

    Cons

    Everything else.

    Founders don't understand the value of experience.
    Work / life balance is non-existent.
    Senior management is unprofessional.
    Culture is hyper-political (but founders don't seem to understand that).

    I worked at Revolut full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great exposure and involvement in many different projects
    Full accountability in many projects from day one

    Cons

    - Work life balance is poor but if you work in startups you should be fine with it as it happens in most of them. Good to mention that KPIs are more difficult to meet due to management high expectations so you will be working longer hours than in other startups.
    - Too many projects going on at the same time and all of them are urgent for management. This situation brings lots of pressure on employees not making days enjoyable at all.
    - Employee benefits don’t exist
