    Pros

    Company is growing fast and all processes are tools are evolving and maturing at a rapid pace.

    Cons

    Things change fast, you won't notice how fast your first 6 months have passed.

    Advice to Management

    Think about the overall career plan so people can grow between roles in Transferwise. Since the company is growing so fast, everybody counts - a person that already understand how everything works from the inside should have a high value.

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

    Pros

    - great office environment - supportive colleagues - dogs in the office - awesome mission - flexible working hours - opportunity to work from home - lots of events and hobby groups - career opportunities and opportunities to show your talent

    Cons

    - danger of burning out - slowly getting more corporate (inevitable considering the size and it’s growth) - salary should be higher considering the responsibility what info is provided to customers (but it’s arguable as you get stock options. So it’s your own call what you value more)
