    Engaging, fast moving, lots of room to make an impact -- my favorite job thus far

    Pros

    Intelligent colleagues. Benefits of working at a startup with the scale of resources of a larger company. Interesting problem space. No shortage of opportunity for impact. If you show passion management will seemingly always try and support you. If you like to move fast, want to work in fintech, and like what you do, this is the place to be.

    Cons

    Coming from big tech / bulge bracket banking / big 3 you will likely take a pay cut. For younger hires, there is a risk you won't learn best practice because there is only time for execution. For mature hires, there is a risk you won't be given ownership.

    Good, not great

    Pros

    • Great work life balance • Get to work with a group of super talented/smart people • Full-time WFH. Office is not mandatory, but is available if you like going in • Fun brand to work on with lots of creative opportunity • Benefits are good. PTO is pretty generous. Starting time off is 20 days, and you can get up to 35 I think.

    Cons

    • If you're in the US, there is an expectation to flex your working hours to the European teams, which often means early calls. And during the summers when the Swedish office is on holiday, US is expected to pick up the slack. • BNPL is a newer industry, and, after the mass layoffs, feels somewhat uncertain for the future success of the business. • Constant change. Within the span of 6 months, your team, your KPIs, and the org structure could change multiple times. It's difficult to wrap your mind around it, and when you finally do, there are more big changes. • The more flat structure at Klarna is not ideal for upward growth • Promotion process is bad. You have to apply for your promotion, and try to convince people that don't know you why you deserve a promotion or raise (beyond the yearly inflation raise). Something like 25% that apply will get what they applied for. • Not very diverse. Being a Swedish company, it is overwhelmingly white. Much of the senior leadership is male, in some cases with no female domain leads or accountable group leads.
