    I have been working at TransferWise full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Great working environment, strong corporate culture and super smart and passionate people
    - Very strong mission and customer focus
    - I am a happy customer myself, which makes working here even better
    - Super exciting hyper-growth, a lot of new people joining all the time
    - I definitely develop and I get all the support I need
    - TransferWise encourages business travel to other offices

    Cons

    - Some growing pains like limited office space, but everyone is making the best out of it until the office is expanded
    - Autonomous teams aren't always the best way to work, some leadership would to good

    Advice to Management

    Some more leadership would be great and help a lot of teams

    Software Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at TransferWise in January 2016.

    Interview

    Completed their developer challenge and received an email offering an interview. A few preliminary questions via email. Scheduled a phone interview. The recruiter didn't call me, and didn't respond to my email asking why they missed the scheduled interview. I am not sure what happened, but after scheduling the interview, there is no reason to not show up.
