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

    Pros

    Generally nice people, very good office location and office perks (free food, coffee, arcade games, table tennis, and a lot more), good tech stack, lot of freedom, top-level tools, good brand in the CV.

    Cons

    A lot of things depend on which team you are in. There are managers who provide everything to their teams: good raises, offsite events (even abroad), extra tools, easily granted money for conferences etc. But then there are the others, inexperienced, often consultants, who are afraid of making decisions and taking responsibility for them. They have no clue what is going on, they are not even interested, they are too busy...

    Advice to Management

    Please, do your best when hiring managers and train them. Create equal opportunities for everyone. Instead of compensating with higher incentive plans the old employees, give them fair raises. Make the job-grades transparent, who is on which level and how to reach the next one. Make the career path clear. Make the compensation really fair, same salary and perks for the same position. Also if you were serious about being...

    Pros

    They are racists and do not encourage progress

    Cons

    They are so fake when it comes to diversity, it's the worse company ever! They are pure racists and only favour English and Swedish people.

      Pros

      Colleagues become friends very fast due to colleagues are the only ones you turn to for help and advice instead of management

      Cons

      Poor management - Managers are usually inexperienced in their territory and not people persons. They are mostly junior people for senior roles. Management likes to separate themselves from the rest of the company and you get a "high horse" feeling. When numbers aren't delivered, managers usually try to chase people out of the company to save their own reputation. Poor salary No training No development possibilities...

      I have been working at iZettle full-time for more than 5 years

      Pros

      Product teams are independent to a large degree, the tech organisation is agile, pretty flat and everyone is free to take ownership and drive initiatives. Even though the company recently has had a large influx of more corporate structure, managers, coaches and whatnot, the tech organisation within iZettle is still a very nice place to work at. The culture is very much focused on freedom in conjuncture with taking...

      Cons

      - Company structure has gone from a delightful flat organisation to a more manager-heavy corporation - Management transparency has gone down recent years - It took way too long for the company to give something back to the employees when it comes to stock options / RSUs. - No clear career path's for the career hungry coders. You basically need to give up coding and become a manager to climb the ladder above a certain...

      Advice to Management

      - Keep the original iZettle culture, protect and nurture it if you want to keep us long timers. We're still here because that culture was and is the best thing about the company and we'd hate to see it disappear. - Please, pretty please, make sure all managers that are recruited from the outside fit within the iZettle culture. We've had a couple of hit and misses, although they're mostly gone now.

      Pros

      Lots of very intelligent people, very helpful and yet super humble. CEO is very transparent,

      Cons

      The cons have to be seen as challenges as we are growing fast and need to learn with each other

      Advice to Management

      iZettle could benefit from having smaller team, up to 10, anything above should be split into 2

      Pros

      iZettle is a progressive company, with positive momentum. Every colleague seems to be friendly and nice. They are always eager to help out. You also get generous benefits and compensation from the company, with great resources to help improve your efficiency.

      Cons

      I not experienced any major con, but once in a while things can take some time. I guess that's what every organization with a large size faces.
