    I have been working at WePay full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I joined last year as the first female engineer. It has been a great ride. I have learned so much in the last year that I learned in four years at Harvard. The people that work here are probably some of the best people I have met in my career. Such patience, such tenacity, such passion, and such intelligence. I wake up every day looking forward to work (and let me tell you, I have been at companies where that was definitely not the case). Everyday comes a new challenge at work and new opportunities for me to grow and expand my reach. You get to grow, grow, grow. They will push you to go beyond your potential in a good way.

    Cons

    I would say the food for sure. It is sooo good. Haha. But if you can learn some self control, you will be fine. :)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We need more engineers especially female ones!

    I have been working at WePay full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The culture is "relaxed". If you stay in the office after 6:30 pm, you usually have the place to yourself. The two co-founders are genuinely nice guys. Awesome snacks and game room!

    Cons

    The flip-side of the laid-back atmosphere is a low level of desire for success. Sure there is frantic activity after a site outage, but only until the site is back up again, then everyone seems to forget it even happened.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please stop being so complacent. We are begins slaughtered by competitors much newer than WePay. Our engineering infrastructure is horrible and everyone including the founders know it. Add to that the fact that the frequency of negative customer reviews has increased dramatically over the past year. Just about every payments review site we have looked at recently includes numerous reviews referring to WePay as a "fraud" or "scam" WePay is a legitimate business, there are honest well intentioned people here, but the company is broken.

    Pros

    Nice people, especially the 2 founders. Some $$ in the bank from a recent funding round.

    Cons

    Very poor engineering infrastructure. Outages occurred regularly and nothing was ever learned from them.

    WePay.com has been around 6 years is still unprofitable and no sign that will change anytime soon. The founders are trying to encourage optimism from another pivot but still with the same rotting engineering foundation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at the competition in this space; WePay is getting killed by younger more aggressive competitors.
