Hi everyone, Got a few offers that I would love some input on. Have offers from Visa, PayPal, Affirm, and Wisetack (series B start-up). Visa is in office while the other three are remote friendly, which is important to me. Visa comp is also about 30k lower than the other offers (tc from the other three companies are at around170, yoe 2.5). Normally I’d go with Wisetack or Affirm for the growth potential but given what happened to Klarna, I’m a bit hesitant. Which option would you go with

    Great team and atmosphere, not so great compensation

    Mar 24, 2022 - Service Delivery Specialist 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Great atmosphere and culture - communication and feedback culture - inclusion and equality are being tackled - colleagues are wonderful - some leads are, too :)

    Cons

    Compensation below average - structures for development and promotion are often nontransparent and depend on too few people who decide whether someone gets promoted/a higher salary or not - which contributes to our team being understaffed and overloaded with work - some leads value numbers/efficiency too high and quality/effectiveness too little - those also sometimes like to keep their folks down, selfishly prohibiting them from developing and being promoted

    The worst experience from Leadership

    May 26, 2022 - Marketing Manager in London, England

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    The Klarnauts people were great but they sacked 10% after an announcement in less than 24h.

    Cons

    Leadership made a clear discrimination of my nationality and origin, this was shocking and the most violent experience I had from any employer in my career. They disrespectfully dismissed people over a pre recorded video without any human emotions. They followed no process nor any legal procedure.

    Great place to work

    Sep 28, 2021 - Service Delivery Lead in Sydney
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    The people at Klarna are all fantastic. I can't recall ever having worked with such a talented and inspiring group of people. I love how every employee is encouraged to own their problem space and how you can really make a change in this organisation. Things move fast when there's a good opportunity. It's a growing company, with great future prospects.

    Cons

    Can't really think of much negative. There's a lot of flexibility to control your own days and we have a hybrid approach to home/office-work which is great. With the flexibility comes that you might also be invited to some late afternoon meetings to collaborate with HQ if your role requires.
