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

    Pros

    Open Banking is revolutionary and TrueLayer has a huge opportunity to have a massive impact both in Europe and globally. We've tripled in size in the last year and it's been cool to see that we keep hiring driven and passionate people to help us reach our goals. Through this incredible growth, the culture has evolved a little bit but remains great. The company values really resonate with me. I particularly like they value people and give them ownership while encouraging everyone to enjoy life.

    Cons

    Start-ups/Scale-ups are hard. Although the vision/mission has never changed, there is often ambiguity that comes from changing priorities. Not a lot of process for such a growing company.

    I have been working at TrueLayer full-time

    Pros

    I've worked in numerous startups. Every company says that they have a great product, a good culture, a huge market opportunity - few actually do. Happy to say that TrueLayer is the exception. I've worked on some genuinely exciting projects since I joined. I learn new things all the time. The people are great. The product is going from strength to strength. I look forward to coming to the office each day. TrueLayer has the goods.

    Cons

    - There are a lot of big, interesting projects in flight which makes it hard to prioritise work - Areas of the company lack process which is normal and I expected from a company of this size/stage

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

    Pros

    - Work with brilliant people - Everyone is encouraged to have ideas and work on side projects. This means we're always challenged and work is interesting and fun (but you have to want to progress, no spoonfeeding). - Possibility of having a say in almost everything: engineers can help in the recruiting process, Salespeople can give suggestion to the products, etc. - Flexible hours and holidays - I never countdown the hours to leave work because I'm usually very involved and don't pay attention to that - Coworkers are super friendly and go out together - They put people first

    Cons

    - The usual startup challenges: internal documentation and communication processes could be improved as we grow in order to become manageable - The expansion to Europe is slowly happening but it should've been here already - Working with super-smart people could be intimidating as everyone has a say and some of them might be a bit reluctant to hear your ideas

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

    Pros

    Insistence from the top down on maintaining a healthy work-life balance. Initiative and entrepreneurship mixed with ownership. Have a good idea? Get it done. More besides, a group of motivated, caring and fun colleagues who I regularly spend time with outside the office.

    Cons

    Startup growing pains. Offices are getting a bit crowded but solutions are coming.

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

    Pros

    Cross team collaboration and company culture. Chilled but rewarding atmosphere. Lots of great socials (hence the beers) to get to know everyone and get people working better together. People genuinely passionate about what they do. Management encourages you to get things done without micro managing you. Lots of career progression possibilities and a decent L&D budget to match

    Cons

    Some small start-up/scale-up teething problems but this comes with the territory and nothing that can't be overcome.

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

    Pros

    - Company with big ambitions and challenges ahead, very motivating - The time is now to be part of a firm in the open banking space! "why now" has a good answer - Genuinely high integrity, nice people all-round - Get as much responsibility as you can handle, no toe-stepping here - Focused on building great product with great technology and great design, and some really innovative features - Increasingly international locations, sense of being part of something big - Some of the best, most tech-forward customers - get to work with the best! - Despite the competitive sector we're in, management want people to enjoy life & work: focused on long term retention and performance - Very honest and mature and transparent sharing of information, we trust our colleagues

    Cons

    - If you like to be told what to do in a very structured way, then this might not be the place for you - We're scaling rapidly in terms of team size, which means we sometimes have lots of cooks (on the upside, everyone is collaborative and debates this stuff honestly) - As the team grows in other offices, we need to improve our video conferencing setup
