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

    Pros

    - Fast paced work environment teaches skills that may otherwise take much longer - Young people of promise are given a chance to take on important projects and ownership of tasks traditionally filled by older employees, in other companies - Opportunity to be be autonomous in achieving company goals - Opportunity to travel - Platforms to express ideas and discuss improvement areas - Opportunity to be involved in a fast-growing company that is pioneering a niche in the market - Dogs in the office - Working with highly talented and motivated people - Internal mobility to grow and change direction

    Cons

    - Workload and pace can be a challenge for some. This is never going to be a walk in park, whatever position or team you work in - Building processes and systems as we go can mean those desiring a structured workload can struggle - Requires a lot of dedication on an individual level - A lot is expected from each employee. Will be difficult for those with lots of commitments outside of work

    Pros

    Culture is extremely strong and you can feel it around in the company every day. If you are a fit culturally, you will enjoy it very much. Mission statement is clear. Would recommend if you want to work for a company with clear mission, youthful employees and where work feels impactful.

    Cons

    Sometimes feels like a cult :)

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

    Pros

    TransferWise is an amazing employer. The company goes out of its way to make sure its employees are happy and have opportunities for both professional and personal growth. People here are smart, down to earth, friendly and ambitious. It really feels like being a part of a family. We have the same values and share the same mission. There are countless opportunities to learn and grow, it is never boring here! Definitely the best place I have ever worked at (compared to big corporations, banks etc.).

    Cons

    After 1,5 years of working here, I would not say that this place has any significant cons.

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

    Pros

    * The company's culture is great - people feel valued and are expected to share their opinion and thoughts. * Growth opportunities - opportunity to learn new things and acquire new skills. Possibility to move to different teams and different roles.

    Cons

    If you are not a fan of changes, then TransferWise might be too much to handle, because company keeps growing and things are at constant change. If on Friday you used to follow one procedure, on Monday you might already have a new way of doing things. You need to keep yourself up-to-date.

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

    Pros

    Very people oriented company. Both for its employees and its customers. The values of the company are there not only on paper. People are driven to work good because they are being taken good care of: starting with on-boarding process, mentoring system, team-events, free snacks and great coffee, as well as comfortable work environment and freedom . The "autonomous teams" working style was very new to me, but it allows for a quicker problem solving and development.

    Cons

    The "autonomous teams" has its downfalls too - mainly the communication between teams during different projects. Mistakes happen when 2 teams are working on similar issues and solutions end up clashing and creating more issues. That will get resolved of course. The personal development is seen more in a movement between teams rather that up-scaling your positions.
