    I worked at TenX full-time

    Pros

    - 5 Star Staff Benefits (especially the health insurance) - Flexible working hours

    Cons

    Despite all the good stuff, management does not appreciate our work and the nasty politics causes a lot of turnovers.

    I worked at TenX full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    * There (was) a good office. * There (were) nice people. * There (was) a good product. * There (was) a good vision.

    Cons

    As with any train-wrecks, they're coming unexpectedly and they're disastrous. And by the way, the company will make sure to rob you out of any single penny that you would've had when you leave to make sure you left with nothing.

    I have been working at TenX full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great team to work with. Awesome people who care about each other. Experiences have been excellent and strong relationships and knowledge has been gained.

    Cons

    The CEO has stepped down and parachuted in an inexperienced and unproven executive team that has not proven themselves in previous roles, and have in fact failed in their prior endeavors. The (ex) CEO has made a rash and un-thoughtout decision that will cause the company to fail long-term, as he has proven he does not care about the people working for the company and only cares for his profits. After multiple failures as CEO he finally made the correct decision to step down, but unfortunately brought in the wrong people in a stupid way. Over the next few months it is without a doubt that a large majority of employees will resign and look for new opportunities where they get the mutual respect they deserve from their boss. Pay cuts and layoffs are abound and morale of the team is at rock bottom.

    I worked at TenX full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I joined TenX when it was a small team of not more than 12-15 employees and I’d seen the company throughout different stages, struggles, challenges, and accomplishments. After over two years we’d grown by 5 fold. We were trying to figure out things together as we go and I’m glad I was able to contribute to different areas i.e. branding, product management, project management, quality assurance, company key values and principles (aka culture), hiring, processes, HR, etc. - An overall friendly environment with quite a few really bright minds to learn from and to work with. - Relatively open to dialogue and changes work ethics. Although, there’s some getting people on-board and some holding hands into it. - Resilient in nature, TenX went through a lot of challenges and rough patches and strived through. - Well-funded startup with a big fan base. Which can be both exciting and stressful due to responsibility for their expectations. - You can contribute to the company in different ways, not necessarily directly related to your job scope if you choose to. - Beautiful office with all imaginable perks and full package with insurance and all.

    Cons

    TenX is a young company that is on the verge of figuring out things so it might feel a bit chaotic. It has both worlds of freedom (and flexibility) and policies. The two can clash at times but if you find a way to balance those and manage expectations you can enjoy the benefits of freedom and can feel the impact. - Clashes of product, startup, corporate, and engineering mindsets. - Many changes, not all of which are well thought or for a good cause. - Incompetent management, leadership, and no direction. - Juggling between corporate policy ethics and flexible results-oriented ethics. - Lack of experience in product development. - Some individuals are overtly protective and can get political. - Poor hiring, stay, exit process. Hiring wrong people, letting go the right ones. - Poor people and product skills.

    I have been working at TenX full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I wanted to write a review after a few other posts , we are all guessing it’s by the same negative toxic ex-employee. Brother , go find something else to do. TenX has faced it’s share of troubles over the past two years. When we lost cards in 2018 it was devastating , especially after the success we had! A founder departed earlier this year but it was the right call to remove him. he made it chaotic. It’s now calm and slowly getting more structured. we have cards back and are launching in new countries nearly every month. It’s cool to see our vibe on the upswing again. Smart people who work hard 99% positive people and vibe in the company Nicest office I’ve ever worked in Fun Fridays and other events Catered lunch where we all really do like to eat together Benefits that cover anything you would possibly need CEO is really smart , friendly and eats lunch with us everyday Passion for crypto in most people Company events 2 times a year for workshops and training New industry and so many learning opportunities Flexable hours and remote work is allowed unlimited annual leave

    Cons

    Engineering & Product teams need help and leadership 1% of the toxic people remain , intent to destroy a good company Crypto industry is a tough space , hard to get used to the trolls inside and out Smart people but should share more and teach others

    I have been working at TenX full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Provides lunch. Flexible work hours. Total lack of product adoption results in a laid back work atmosphere

    Cons

    Company internals are ravaged by politics, intimidation, threats, employees fired, disappeared, leaving, and forced out... there is no business strategy or product development Management and C-level is totally incompetent and only cares about their personal enrichment. Completely corrupt. Internal censorship is commonplace and employee communications are monitored and controlled total lack of accountability can be a plus because employees enjoy free food and income for no work for months or years.

    TenX Response

    TenX Team

    Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback. I am sorry to see that your experience at TenX has not matched our intention of being one of the best places you have ever worked. We are happy that you enjoy our flexible working hours and daily catered lunch. From our most recent workplace study, 82% of your colleagues enjoy it too and in fact, we have a higher ratio of employees who love to come in to the office to collaborate with each other; more than the average company. In our recent values survey, 73% of our employees said they are proud to work at TenX because they are surrounded by smart people. We are very proud of our employees who are self motivated to achieve even and aren’t pegged down by structure, which is normal for a startup. With our flexible work hours and unlimited annual leave, we put full trust in our employees to have integrity, honesty and positivity in themselves and their work at TenX. We are sorry this is not the case for you and we hope you take personal care for yourself by taking time to reflect on your work and contributions. We also note your Product feedback, we have just come out of a three-day Product workshop which helped to rally our teams and give us a more defined direction with the launch of Squads. The feedback from the workshop was amazing and we are thrilled to see people stepping up and working on projects far outside their job description. We will also be re-launching OKR’s later this year to give us more guidance and increased company communication and transparency. We applaud all of our hard working, dedicated employees who work tirelessly to help make TenX a success. Thanks again for the feedback, it helps to make TenX an even better place to work. We wish you the best of luck in finding professional and personal happiness.
