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

    Pros

    Great company with clearly defined goals. There is always clear direction on what needs to get done and leadership is pretty well organized. Lots of opportunity for growth and a ton of support if needed. All the perks that you expect from a company in bay area; tons of free food and catered lunches, flexible hours and work from home options, over a month of paid vacation, etc.

    Cons

    Tech stach is a bit dated but there is a lot of work being done to switch over to newer technologies. Honestly, for a company of this age and size can't really complain all that much about the stack. Office is also a bit cramped but we are slated to move into our new office Q2 of 2020 so only a temporary issue.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing.

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

    Pros

    Great place to work at, their system architecture kept evolving and was extremely interesting to see how better things kept getting. It was just a incredible joy to work on projects & tasks and with other departments (including non tech departments).

    Cons

    None, if you're hesitating whether to work here, then stop and go for it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing, you know your product well and you're going dominate this space.

    I worked at WePay full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The co- presidents are great!

    Cons

    The people that have hired in 2018 - are poor to say the least. In engineering - they will hire kids right of college and do not speak english too well. HR - is poor - and the most loud month group - not confidential at all. Finance has a turn over - due to hiring poor management - the latest person - lasted a year at last company - did HR check why that person left?? Background checks - are a joke.

    Advice to Management

    Co- presidents buy back the company from Chase - before it is run into the ground.
