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

    Pros

    - Opportunities to work on exciting projects in a rapidly expanding company - Mission driven culture where everyone is working hard - Amazing co-workers (who bring well behaved dogs to work!) who are drama free - No silly rules or mindless bureaucracy that you find at large financial institutions - Leadership and career development opportunities for those that pursue them - Regular open performance feedback - Great benefits package and stock options - Generous leave and holiday policies - Zero deductible health insurance option in the US - Work travel (depending on your role)

    Cons

    - Salary compensation is not competitive for many roles - Feedback heavy culture requires a growth mindset and isn't for the thin-skinned

    Advice to Management

    Raising compensation levels would make TransferWise a more competitive employer for talent. Benefits and culture only go so far to attract and retain talent.

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

    Pros

    - Friendly environment - Opportunities to lead great projects - Working with people from different cultures - Lots of perks and benefits in addition to your paycheck - Pet-friendly office

    Cons

    - Not many opportunities to keep growing - There's barely any higher positions to get promoted to - Pay rate is not too competitive

    Advice to Management

    Bring more management position to Tampa. Otherwise people don't have possibilities to keep growing and stay in the company for the long run.

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

    Pros

    The culture here is so supportive and amazing, it is a totally different environment then probably anywhere else you have worked at before.

    Cons

    The only downside might be the starting salary for some positions but there are many other benefits that make up for that

    Pros

    So many amazing opportunities with this company, and amazing co workers to go along with it. If you are looking for a job working with passionate individuals, this is it.

    Cons

    What cons? Honestly though, the only con for me is the drive to work, but even then we do have the option to work from home!

I'm excited to come to work and learn more and grow within this amazing company.

    Cons

    NONE, None, zip, zero, zilch.
