      Technology and software used is a pro (very forward looking in terms of technology) Great team of data scientists with very good knowledge and experience. Office environment is awesome!

      Cons

      Team setup can get quite chaotic. One can expect to move between teams often for no clear reason. Can end up in team with no clear career development.

      "Fear driven corrupted culture, politics and lack of common sense in middle management"

        Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Stockholm, Stockholm
        Doesn't Recommend

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

        Pros

        Good atmosphere, office, people, location, highly professional approach to product development

        Cons

        Toxic culture in middle and top management

        Advice to Management

        Look for bottom-up integration, feedback loops etc. Currently important organisational signals are simply being disbanded because of the middle management protecting their own interests and playing politics.

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

        Pros

        None at all. Worst job I've ever had.

        Cons

        Rotten company culture. It felt like high school, but for autistic kids. People stabbing each other in the backs over minimum wage data entry positions, people socially snubbing each other, etc. All that nastiness when the stakes are so low. The company really tries hard to be cool and hip but it's just awful.

        Disapproves of CEO

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

        Pros

        Work side by side with amazing talent Culturally diverse Modern dev tooling Full-stack independent teams

        Cons

        The office is just crammed with desks. If you're lucky you might get your own. An increasingly number of teams now work in shared workstations, where you'll be all day pairing or mob programming with your team all day, every day, at all times. Of course that's great for productivity, risking your coworkers' disapproval, how can you get distracted? For the same reason the office is very noisy. Open workspace + mob programming...

        Pros

        Fast paced, quick decision making, exciting product, market leading.

        Cons

        Chaotic, inexperienced leadership team, quite political.

        Advice to Management

        Less micro management, trust your teams more to do the job they are paid to do. Build up the experience within the leadership team, hire some more experienced leaders.
