    Ich habe für mehr als 8 Jahre bei WorldRemit gearbeitet (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    There aren't that many. Most of what was good has gone now, as WorldRemit is under new management. There was free beer and snacks on a Friday, but that has been "voted" as unnecessary now.

    Kontras

    Where do I start. If you're based in London, and have the skills to work in a Fintech, go somewhere else. This job will be a stain on your CV.

    Rat an das Management

    You had a smoldering platform and then you hired an inept CTO who has poured petrol on to the smoke. The 1-day outage recently was just a taste of things to come. All the people who understood how thingsworked have left (or were pushed), and you now have a "team" in Poland who suspiciously arrived with the CTO and are now trying to rewrite everything, but can't even get the simplest changes in to the current... platform. Get real guys. You're spending millions on unneeded technology change, while all the talent that built the business is walking out of the door to go and work for your competitors. Nice job. Your competitors thank you for that.

    Ich arbeite seit weniger als einem Jahr bei WorldRemit als Vollzeit

    Pros

    Diverse workplace where people really do want to make a product that works for users. Nice office. New tech stack is moving in the right direction. Management are trying to change and improve.

    Kontras

    Previous poor management. A lot has change in the last year and this process has not been handled well. A large number of engineers have been off-shored to Krakow. There is a definite cultural split between senior management and more junior staff.

    Rat an das Management

    Spend more time thinking actually how plans will be actioned end to end. Break down large changes into more smaller pieces with clearer checks on progress more frequently. Take time to celebrate wins more often with employees of all levels.

    Ich arbeite seit mehr als 3 Jahren bei WorldRemit (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    * High growth - engineering team has a lot of new headcount * Ambitious plans - lots of effort being put in to modernise the platform and use the latest tech - docker, k8s etc. * Really high engagement with customers, good mission - helping migrants to send money home for healthcare, housing, education etc. * Relaxed office, friendly people

    Kontras

    * A lot going on, change in structure and projects * Some part of the stack are quite old now, there's projects to tackle them but they will take some time

    Rat an das Management

    * Do less, better. There are a lot of projects going on which has overhead in coordination and management. * Build bridges between offices - it's hard to keep culture and grow when there are multiple offices involved.

    Aim of the company and product is great People are nice Great office Great location

    Kontras

    Krakow office should be better organized. Communication should be improved.

    Rat an das Management

    Management's decisions should be communicated better. Don't get obsessed with GitPrime stats.

    Pros

    Nice office location, flexible working

    Kontras

    I joined WorldRemit because I was inspired by making a difference. But profit these days comes over people -- both customers and employees. It is a frustrating place to work as goalposts shift continuously, your title can change at the drop of a hat without input from you or consideration of your career ambitions, and emotional intelligence is sorely lacking. We recently went through a values exercise but in... principle only not in practice.

    Rat an das Management

    Pay attention to culture, invest in people's careers for the long-term -- they will be loyal to you. Consider the workload of junior and middle-management. Growing astronomically but compensation and benefits not keeping pace.

    Pros

    You'll definitely learn a lot on the job because their training is not conclusive. Overall, it's an easy job but management puts a lot of pressure for results, so this is absolutely about quantity not about quality.

    Kontras

    It always feels like there's an elephant on the room. The elephant may be the micromanagement that's going on in the background. So always keep in mind what you're doing and how it will impact your results. I mean it. Oh, did I mention that you need to wait for management to approve your 15 min break? Worldremit, seriously? It may be because I've never had to do this in the past but this is ridiculous. Also,... benefits start after your 3 month "probation" to see if you have what it takes to last on the job. So always cover your butt! HR doesn't explain how this works in the beginning so you have to do your homework and plan accordingly. Plus, I don't think they have 401k and such since nobody has told me... again Looks like company has lost a lot of money in the past so they're now taking action to make more money Relationship between Cebu, Denver and London may not be as good as they portray them to be, so keep eye out for this too. There's been high attrition lately so plan accordingly which is why I conclude... Worldremit has good people but it's not worth spending the rest of your life in it unless you like being micromanaged. So gain experience and move on!

    Care more about your front line employees! Because if you care about your people, your people will take care of your results.

    Pros

    The most multicultural company I've ever worked at. Above market salary for some developers. Some very interesting challenges made this a fascinating industry to work at. Some projects used very new technologies.

    Kontras

    My biggest complaint here is that the new management seems way too focused in becoming profitable. Even at the cost of losing very valuable people and systems knowledge. Also, communication with London is very poor.

    Rat an das Management

    If laying people off is necessary I understand, but a LOT can be done to make sure there's less of an impact after this happens. The other day there was a 4 hour outage for the main portal and no one did anything. Seemed like the guy on call had been laid off and the new chain of command hadn't been set. Very dumb, unnecessary problem. Finally, if the intention is to build all software in Poland I'd suggest to at... least have a Product Owner where the final customer is. Having the customer, scrum master, product owner and developers all in different countries is a recipe for disaster.

    Pros

    Centrally located offices Breakfast snacks/fruit available most of the time Some genuinely nice friendly people (although this number drops almost weekly)

    Kontras

    Borderline unpleasant/toxic work environment The nice friendly helpful staff are in the minority Such a terrible shame. It was such great place to work for many years The founder had a mission, make it easier, faster and cheaper to send money across the world. People first and foremost, you sensed it from the moment you joined, a real family atmosphere But then new management was installed, and the mission... became about profit above all else (echoed in other reviews), it became the only metric that mattered Staff morale has been eroded to almost non existent. HR attempt to fix this by sending out staff surveys, but they are uniquely identifiable to each staff member, so they either don’t fill them in, or answer that everything is great as they have mortgages and kids to put through school and cannot be certain about the outcome of being honest Many of the UK staff axed or who quit were replaced with staff in Poland The organisation now has all the charm and allure of a poultry battery farm I really hope they are able to turn it around, but I could not stay there to help them with it

    Rat an das Management

    Anonymise your staff surveys if you really want to know how people feel. Yes, you will possibly get a few vile, angry, juvenile responses, discard them. People will not tell you the truth if they fear repercussions

    Pros

    Nice Office, Central Location. Some people that still care about why the company was set up, to help people send money to their loved ones.

    Kontras

    New management has come in recently and there is now no Senior leadership are aligning themselves as quickly as possible to the new management team and in essence "throwing their teams under the bus". The culture has changed drastically where by everyone is out for themselves, mainly trying to protect themselves from the redundancies. Waves of redundancies are going round but never addressed, just rumours... floating in the office that people are going. I have watched whole teams be called into a meeting room one-by-one and "let go". Reasons being given vary but are clearly not well thought out. Cost cutting is the real reason. Currently going through a project to cut all costs no matter the effect. Communication could not be worse, nothing is communicated (especially decisions that effect the whole office) information just spreads through the office like a school yard.

    Think about what is going to be left of the business, people and culture after all this cost cutting. Seems to me like a shell of a company.
