    I worked at HelloWallet full-time

    Pros

    Amazing culture that you cannot find anywhere else.

    Cons

    No longer a startup, so there's bureaucracies that hinder progress, but not too bad

    I have been working at HelloWallet full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great working environment.
    Leading edge technology.
    Many opportunities with Morningstar.
    Amazing exposure to work with some of the biggest companies in the world.

    Cons

    None really. A little shaky when being integrated into the Morningstar organization after acquisition - but that's a normal thing when these situations occur.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing.

    Pros

    Casual work environment was great. Company has good benefits.

    Cons

    Management is very fake. It seems as if they do not care about employee moral one bit. My former coworkers and I were overworked and not supported. Gave this company lots of time and energy and did my best for them, but they give nothing in return for good work.

    Advice to Management

    Employee morale is important. You should not be happy with only with your own successes.

    I have been working at HelloWallet full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I have been working here for 4 years. I worked on different projects and witnessed the Hellowallet fast growth. Now at hellowallet, it is full of opportunities and challenges. Tons of open questions and open projects can be done. I really enjoy working with the co-workers, solving problems while having lots of fun.
    No rigid process, people cares more about results.

    Cons

    The team is too lean to handle so many works.

    Pros

    The community at HelloWallet is truly committed to the mission of providing a Financial Wellness solution to employees. Helping people achieve better financial outcomes is something that drives everyone at HelloWallet

    Cons

    Things move quickly and if you are more of a process driven person it will take time to address. If you are not looking to help innovate then you might struggle with working here.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to motivate and reward employees for their good work. Morale is very high right now and people truly believe in what the company is doing. I truly believe this is what makes this company great.

    I have been working at HelloWallet full-time

    Pros

    You'll team up with a core group of exceptionally bright people. No politics. It's just about how you can contribute to help others make sense of their finances. Lots of demanding work and room for achievement.

    Cons

    The startup environment can be very daunting. There's a ton of work and everyone is expected to take on a large amount of responsibility.

    Pros

    You get to work with some exceptionally smart and talented people. Ideas are cherished, your voice will be heard. We all love being here and it shows.
