Does Mollie offer massages?

Pros

The Mollie office is super nice, free lunch, breakfast and drinks. The equipment is up to standard, which makes working from home feel like a nice experience.

Cons

There are almost no processes and vision is lacking. I notice that especially the workforce is generally not happy with how things are being handled by management. There's a lot of people leaving currently, Mollie is going through massive change. Overall I wouldn't advise stepping in at the moment. Your not treated like a human being, but like a robot by the management team. Never heard 'thank you'. They're not looking at opportunities within the workforce for cross functional teams on running projects. It's all over the place. If you want to work in a organised Agile environment Mollie is not the way to go. I would even go as far that it's going to result in a toxic environment very soon if management is not taking comments and concerns of employees serious.

Does Mollie assist with or provide childcare?

Pros

Warm welcome, fun young team, lots of good care for the employees in both benefits and activities! I could also tell that the managers really tried to facilitate a comfortable work environment for the employees.

Cons

The system is quite complex, so you'll always be busy trying to figure it out yourself too (which could also be a plus!). The company has really grown a lot, which also made it a fair bit more corporate.

Advice to Management

Please make sure you keep in mind what effect your decisions have on the employees at the very bottom, or if you do make sure they know that and elaborate if necessary, I did not always feel like being taken into consideration.

How are the career development opportunities at Mollie?

Pros

One of the best things I like about Mollie is that only very few people are leaving. I think this says a lot about the work and culture. Over the past years I've seen Mollie grow from less than 20 employees to over 120, but it definitely doesn't feel out of control or too fast. In the engineering department you notice that the company is more a tech company than a financial company. We are encouraged to work with cool and new technologies. Developer happiness is a valid argument to start a project. There are lots of interesting technical challenges, like keeping all processes working with the growing business or building new products.

Cons

The growth of Mollie gives a lot of opportunities to all employees, but I feel like you really have to push yourself forward to make steps in your career. Still junior developers becoming team lead because they want it, but very skilled employees staying where they are because they aren't taking any initiative to take a next step. You also have to create your own next position, instead of someone higher in the organisation thinking about how to structure the departments and then trying to find the best person for the position.

Advice to Management

Try to make clearer plans for the future, not only product wise but also for the organisation. Communicate these plans with the rest of the company, and give everyone the opportunity to show interest in a certain position. Keep showing appreciation for all employees, with nice parties, good snacks and enjoyable workplaces. I think you're doing great already, but sometimes it's difficult to scale this with the growth in employees.

What kind of career opportunities exist at Mollie?

Pros

Mollie is a fascinated company in the stage of “hyper growth” on the European market, so as an employee you are not limited by your job title which gives the opportunity to excel in varied tasks. Within Mollie you can get an opportunity to think big and small. On the one side, to think strategically by taking a step back and see the overall company goals, or the industry as a whole, then apply it to your work. On the other side, to deep dive into the details.

Cons

Company can benefit from a little bit more stable and more rigorous internal government processes.

Does Mollie have any sort of mentoring programme?

Pros

Engineering plays a vital role in the company's success since it's mostly a technical product. Your voice as an engineer counts at this company. The engineering teams feel like family. You are surrounded by talented, helpful, and positive engineers. People at Mollie often hang out together outside of work as well. There are ski trips and such being organised by the people regularly. With the rapid growth of the company there's a lot to learn for engineers with regards to product scalability, security, maintainability and tooling. The engineering team leads are focused on helping you grow through career frameworks, personal coaching and such.

Cons

As in any fast-growing company, there are some growing pains such as board indecisiveness.
