    No Opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    - Great place to learn to build a product. Great place to work if you want to open your startup in the future. - Very flexible in terms of holidays, working remotely (from home or in trips anywhere around the globe)

    Cons

    - Apart from a few engineers, most are quite poor. Lots and lots of tech debt which is hard to pay up due to lack of concern for quality. - Low salary. Pays quite below the market

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to be more present in guiding the direction of teams
