    • Senior Management
    Former Employee - Summer Intern in New York, NY

    I worked at iZettle for less than a year

    Pros

    The autonomy, structure, atmosphere. Intern is respected and a part of the iZettle family instead of only being considered as a temporary intern.

    Cons

    Not being able to have any joint problem solving and team work.

    Pros

    Fun, young and vibrant work culture. Great products, autonomous teams, freedom to innovate, lots of hack weeks and bright future since we are now part of the PayPal family! Good work life balance.

    Cons

    Not much. More engagement from senior leadership could be helpful in certain areas / projects.

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

    Pros

    I have to say, I've been reading some of the recent negative reviews on iZettle and they absolutely do not gel with my experience working here in the Edinburgh office. So I decided to jump on and post my thoughts, as a someone who is not a disgruntled former employee, but rather a very happy current employee. You know that "Sunday" feeling you get, when you know that you have to go to work the next day, and you get...

    Cons

    No workplace is perfect. In terms of working conditions, I wouldn't change a thing. There are some benefits that they could do better, like a more generous holiday allowance, equal parental leave for men/same sex couples as for mothers, enhanced pension contribution matching, and a more comprehensive private health care plan.

    Advice to Management

    Consider a less flat management structure - as we grow, think about whether a person can be an effective manager with 15-20+ people directly reporting to them. And the managers that you DO appoint? Give them the opportunity to take management training courses, which doesn't come out of their training budget.

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

    Pros

    Generally nice people, very good office location and office perks (free food, coffee, arcade games, table tennis, and a lot more), good tech stack, lot of freedom, top-level tools, good brand in the CV.

    Cons

    A lot of things depend on which team you are in. There are managers who provide everything to their teams: good raises, offsite events (even abroad), extra tools, easily granted money for conferences etc. But then there are the others, inexperienced, often consultants, who are afraid of making decisions and taking responsibility for them. They have no clue what is going on, they are not even interested, they are too busy...

    Advice to Management

    Please, do your best when hiring managers and train them. Create equal opportunities for everyone. Instead of compensating with higher incentive plans the old employees, give them fair raises. Make the job-grades transparent, who is on which level and how to reach the next one. Make the career path clear. Make the compensation really fair, same salary and perks for the same position. Also if you were serious about being...

    Pros

    They are racists and do not encourage progress

    Cons

    They are so fake when it comes to diversity, it's the worse company ever! They are pure racists and only favour English and Swedish people.
