Is Klarna a good company to work for?

Pros

There are a lot of great people working at Klarna and there are many opportunities to advance or change path within the company. They also arrange a lot of events, guest speekers etc. that are really interesting.

Cons

The management is not working, at least in the lower levels. Most managers/team leaders are quite inexperienced as managers, they get close to no leadership training and there is a culture of micromanaging. From what I have seen many team leaders seem to point fingers and blame their team whenever something goes wrong, rather that owning up to it themselves and taking actions - something very different from normal Swedish work culture. My team leader treated people in postions below her terribly, really a bully rather than a manager. That said, there are good managers there too, but until the company culture changes and they start valuing good leadership I would advice people who value competent leaders to think twice before joining.

Advice to Management

Look over how you educate your managers and team leader and what kind of culture you are promoting.
