    I have been working at TransferWise full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Still a strong culture of ownership and getting stuff done - People genuinely care about each other - very little internal politics - Clear mission/vision of where company is going

    Cons

    - Leadership quality is generally strong, but can be uneven depending on function - Bit more process / "structure" starting to creep in given a large company - Given flat structure, advancement opportunities vary widely depending on function. - Pay generally at middle of market, rather than towards the top.
