    Pros

    - They are so forthcoming with everything, really make you feel appreciated and valued. - So many opportunities to progress and make a difference, pursue the path you are interested in with side projects. - Free food and company events! - Working from home if you wish to.

    Cons

    - As they're still a relatively new company, not everything is set in stone which is a good thing if you're keen to make a difference and help progress and grow the company. It can also sometimes be frustrating if you like structure.

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

    Pros

    Employees are empowered to work independently and to be creative in their problem solving. There's no such thing as 'we've always done it like this'. Ideas get challenged continuously, meaning that innovation happens constantly. Credit is given where it is due, as well as helpful and constructive feedback where needed.

    Cons

    Due to the very autonomous / decentralized way of work, sometimes teams work on overlapping projects without knowing it. This is not necessarily negative, but it can be frustrating sometimes.

    This is a really good workplace, plenty of opportunities and challenges to keep people interested and engaged.
