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

    Pros

    Multiple autonomous teams with cross team collaboration that leads to big things happening. It feels good to be part of something this good. Fun work environment and you work with only the best people :)

    Cons

    As with any startup, you always do more than perhaps is expected from you, and work-life balance therefore can suffer. Some days you wish you got paid more for the amount of work you put in daily.

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

    Pros

    There is loads of freedom to exercise your creative potential and to really develop yourself as a person. The company is growing and changing constantly so you have to grow as a person and develop yourself to stay ahead of the curve. TransferWise gives you pretty much all the tools you need to do your job and basic instructions on what the expected outcome is, but aside from that you get to make your own fun. There aren't any set benefits (aside from share options), but you can pretty much come up with your own benefits if you pitch it to Human Resources. The atmosphere is very entrepreneurial, but very supportive and positive at the same time. The collective is really global/international, so the variety of people who work here is massive. Being surrounded by people who are smarter and better then you definitely helps you refine and develop your A game. Whatever your field, you'll likely be doing things that no one else has ever done before - and that's pretty exciting as well.

    Cons

    If you have been working in a place where your boss gives you daily instructions and if you love stable rules and strict settings - then this place is not for you. So far the hiring has been focused on getting people who are responsible adults and people who do not need any babysitting. Coincidentally sometimes these responsible adults are also workaholics. So there is a small chance of TransferWise swallowing up your entire life - unless you have kids or a really exciting personal life. Obviously the people make the company and if you're looking to join, then remember that you are being measured up to people who have already established a reputation of being industry heavy hitters - be it business, design, customer support, engineering etc. So the barrier to entry can be a little intimidating sometimes.

    Pros

    Every day I drive to work with a smile on my face, because I get to do one amazingly challenging, and rewarding job, and to be around a bunch of so many inspiring and smart people. You are loved, supported, and heard at all times. It's like a second family you will gain when working here.

    Cons

    Absolutely nothing to add here.
