    I have been working at TransferWise full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Fast paced work environment teaches skills that may otherwise take much longer - Young people of promise are given a chance to take on important projects and ownership of tasks traditionally filled by older employees, in other companies - Opportunity to be be autonomous in achieving company goals - Opportunity to travel - Platforms to express ideas and discuss improvement areas - Opportunity to be involved in a fast-growing company that is pioneering a niche in the market - Dogs in the office - Working with highly talented and motivated people - Internal mobility to grow and change direction

    Cons

    - Workload and pace can be a challenge for some. This is never going to be a walk in park, whatever position or team you work in - Building processes and systems as we go can mean those desiring a structured workload can struggle - Requires a lot of dedication on an individual level - A lot is expected from each employee. Will be difficult for those with lots of commitments outside of work

    I have been working at TransferWise full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Strong compliance program, collaborative work environment, high opportunity for self- and career development, smart coworkers with great personalities

    Cons

    Not really a con, but I'm required. Environment is fast-paced--mastering work requires subject matter expertise, good problem-solving skills, great communication skills, instinct for process development, and facility for relationship building. Challenging, but very engaging and fun.
