    Don't drink the Klarna Kool-Aid... it's not that great.

    Pros

    - 20 weeks fully paid parental leave for US employees - Regular small appreciation gifts/fika - Possibility to travel to Stockholm or other international locations depending on your role (pre-pandemic, anyway)

    Cons

    - Below average pay. The company I moved to pays 30% more for the same job. - Extremely dogmatic and micromanaged "agile" ways of working, even for teams where it makes no sense to work that way. - No raises for employees during the pandemic, even though earnings were amazing in 2020. What a slap in the face. - So. Many. Useless. Meetings. At least 60% of my calendar was always booked with mandatory meetings that could've been emails. - The promotion system is weirdly and confusingly separated into a promotion period and a salary review. It requires an enormous amount of justification on your end in the form of constant detailed self-evaluation based on vague "leadership principles" and sending lengthy surveys to colleagues who don't actually have any idea how you're performing but will fill them out anyway because they want you to do the same for them later. And even then, raises and promotions are still not transparent or consistent. - Absolute chaos and disorder. Products going live without impacted teams knowing about it, bad products being released, "high-priority" initiatives that demand whole teams to immediately drop everything else only to get abruptly canceled halfway through, hiring then suddenly laying off entire teams... it was a mess from top to bottom.

    Pros

    Klarna moves quickly and if you have a good idea you are able to move forward with it, which allows you a unique opportunity to showcase your skills and move up in your career more easily than at other workplaces. I have great work/life balance. Klarna is very inclusive and really celebrates success well.

    Cons

    Because Klarna moves so quickly, it can be difficult to stay on top of what is new within your workstream.
