    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.

    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.

    I have been working at TransferWise

    Pros

    Excellent culture, great pay, fun and challenging working environment. Plenty of opportunities for growth.

    Cons

    There are hardly any cons. Growing too fast takes its toll but the company is managing the growth well.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up good work. You've managed to do it so far. There is nothing bad to say.
