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

    Pros

    Great culture and working environment, incredibly smart people to work with and learn from. Support to develop and grow, numerous opportunities to take initiative. Very strong mission that is more just buzzwords.

    Cons

    Due to how fast the company is growing, there are issues with lack of available free (permanent) desks and meeting rooms. Cross-team efforts are not so easy to coordinate as all teams are autonomous.

    I worked at TransferWise

    Pros

    Really positive atmosphere in the office. Everybody has the same ambitions for the company and really strives to achieve them. No one feels themselves better than others.

    Cons

    Company is growing fast. I hope they will continue to keep their characteristics as a start up and their ambition to stop the bad exchange rate banks.

    Advice to Management

    Continue listening to all the ideas coming from everyone. This really differentiates this company to others.

    I worked at TransferWise full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    TransferWise has really cool working culture. The people here are nice, willing to help you out. Each and everyone takes initiative and their responsibility seriously: 1. No blaming: Whenever you make a mistake, accept it, fix it then tell everyone your lesson. No one is gonna blame you for that. 2. Absolutely no politics: You dont exactly have a boss, more like a mentor/guide/leader and normally they act like your...

    Cons

    1. Compensation is only acceptable 2. Learning curve stales after the first year, not much else to do, work becomes chores 3. The company is growing too fast, new comers and people keeps moving between department makes it hard to have a stable team. 4. People have to define their own career path since the company is not so clear on this.

    Advice to Management

    1. Catch up with market compensation. 2. Give clear career path.
