What is the work environment like at Klarna?

Pros

- Lots of opportunities/freedom to try different roles and problem spaces - Very young and energised company - Trust is built on results and motivation, more than on seniority - Fun product

Cons

- Extreme top down micro-management, including from executives - Extreme parallel "top prio" projects, which results in all lot of people being overworked, from managers to individual contributors - A lot of managers became managers because they have a good network in the company. This results in a lot of managers who are very incompetent or unfit for people management. - Very scattered work and responsibilities among team members. This means you are likely to only work with a fraction of a problem space and competence (as opposed to a holistic end-to-end problem space, as you would in other companies). This can affect your personal competence development

Advice to Management

- Stop micro-managing managers - Trust product managers to know their product - Stop being the ones designing the products: you do not represent at all the Klarna average end user. If anything, you are the opposite of the end-users - Define what "priority" means - Be patient and let products grow, instead of immediately shifting decisions if a product release to not meet targets after the 1st month of a release.

Very scattered work and responsibilities among team members.
