    I have been working at WePay full-time for less than a 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 worked at WePay full-time for more than a year

    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.

    I have been working at WePay

    Pros

    open vacation policy, free lunch/snacks, emerging company

    Cons

    High turnover lately which makes me question if I should start looking for another job.

    Competitors are out innovating them. But thats not even the biggest problem, the bigger problem is having a product that doesn't work as it stands now. There are a lot of reliability issues and bugs with it.

    We're in a situation where we don't have enough of engineering resources which means we can't simultaneously fix whats broken and focus on innovation and expansion

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I love our founders, they are great people. However, it may be time for them to step aside and allow more experienced leaders to step in to take the company to the next level.

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

    Pros

    WePay is a really fun company to work for - that's because the company spends a lot of time on two things 1) pushing the envelope to be innovative and 2) listening to employees and focusing on a great culture. I'm always encouraged to be creative. Moreover, executive leadership is always open to listening to me and they are very transparent. Plus, you get the excitement of a fast growing start-up and while we work hard, people are pretty respectful of work/life balance as well - which I didn't expect in a start-up.

    Cons

    Payments is really interesting but just a complex and sometimes challenging space. You have to be ready to constantly be thinking about risk and regulation - whether you are in product, support, engineering or marketing.

    You better work hard, which is not a downside to me.

    I have been working at WePay full-time

    Pros

    Company: I joined WePay a couple years ago as an unpaid intern. I've quickly risen the ranks and have learned more in the last 6 months than my entire college career. I'm also blown away by the tenacity, drive, and hustle of the entire company (especially management). We have an awesome product, now-famous customer service, and a well thought out execution plan. I also work with the smartest people I know.

    Perks: New macbook air, 3 free meals a day, huge snack-room stocked with whatever you want, and a young, "work hard, play hard" culture. We also get a discounted gym membership and have company off-sites every quarter.

    Cons

    Building a company is hard. The entire WePay team works long hours (10-12 hours per day) and is constantly pushing themselves to be better. As a result, you might feel inadequate your first few months but that goes away with time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep innovating, keep moving.
