    Pros

    Visionary and inspirational CEO. Lots of flexibility and trust. Great community and awesome perks. Surrounded by smart and talented people.

    Cons

    Salary is below market rate but the benefits and stock options make it a good option Autonomous teams can leave me feeling like there's a lack of structure and support

    Pros

    Great Workplace, great people, awesome culture. In the interview process 90% you will be interviewed by the VPs and at least one of the founders. Don't get scared, be honest, direct, simply put: be yourself. The guys here are one of the most open environments i've been. As an employee you are highly autonomous and the people you work with are just great.

    Cons

    - the interview process was long - the

    Pros

    Great team, cool culture, product engineering: you're expected to think ahead how you're modifications will impact the value of the product, the work you're doing have a direct impact with the customers

    Cons

    The cool company culture, combined with the fact that you're directly involved with the evolution of the product, makes it a bit hard to switch off.

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

    Pros

    Plenty of opportunities to explore, as in the long run you are the one who sets the challenges and goals, not managers (that are mostly absent per se). Flat hierarchy, cozy working environment and outstandingly friendly atmosphere.

    Cons

    Limited vertical career growth opportunities, if you care about that.
