    I worked at WorldRemit full-time

    Pros

    The office is nice and modern and well located in Victoria Made some good friends Core benefits were pretty good

    Cons

    The company lost it's way when they replaced the founder as CEO and brought in an 'all stick no carrot' character from the gambling sector. People fear walking past him in the hallways. WR completely lost all heart they had at that point. Many of the leadership team who truly cared were replaced by tyrants. Shouting in the office became common place. Staff turnover across the business became the norm - in some cases whole teams were let go with no warning or explanation. One day the whole recruitment team and HR were gone, other days it's finance or engineering who have had whole team's positions offshored to Poland or the Philippines. Little to no remote working opportunities No flexibility with start and finish times.

    Thanks for your review - we're glad that you made friends during your time at WorldRemit - we believe we've got a great culture for that. We're a growing business and that sometimes means changes. Careful consideration however, is always given to changes that involve redundancies. If anyone is concerned about conduct in our offices we'd encourage them to speak to their manager or HR. Over the last three months all of our people have been working remotely while continuing to serve our customers - we're really proud of the way the team has continued working together through a challenging time, demonstrating how effective remote working can be.

    A lot of change through growth, office hours are longer than most places, 9 to 6
