      Pros

      Wizeline is a company that cares about their employees. You will find here a lot of talented people with a great culture and a company that helps you grow as much as you want. If you want to increase your tech and business skills you may look to this company.

      Cons

      The salary is not as high as an US company but it is competitive in the region

      Pros

      - lots of room to apply your ideas and work with talented people - access to the whole org to get advice. you can openly talk to the CEO, CTO, etc.. and get advice or ping pong ideas - many things to do since this is a startup both for customers and for cowokers - certifications/ training. wizeline invests ALOT on your if you are willing to put the effort - collaboration - you dont get stuck working for 1 customer

      Cons

      (Disclamer this is 100% my personal opinion) this section I will write for people who have never worked in a startup before. Many of these are things that are work in progress and you can help make better. - Processes and policies are not always defined or change soon. - Company goals/ will change rapidly, due to incoming opportunities to make the company grow , - You need to speak up, if you want something to change you will need to speak up and/or initiate the change 99% of the time you will get a change towards improvement of that "thing" you didn't like - Your growth depends on you. Wizeline helps set the environment but you have to take advantage of it( not a lot of hand holding to get you where you want to be) - When working with a customer 100% of the time you sometimes feel you like you dont contribute as much to the company growth

      A company that falsely prides itself on its' people

      Pros

      Wizeline offers solid benefits and from what I understand pays well for the Mexican market. Upon hire employees receive a MacBook, enjoy a fully stocked kitchen with 1-2 meals per day (depending on the office you work in), a stock plan, etc. Something I like about Wizeline is that their recruitment process seems solid. They hire talented people, which is the best part of having worked here. I learned a lot from your peers.

      Cons

      When Wizeline first started out there was a lot of opportunity for growth and advancement for hardworking employees. Now that the majority of the higher-ups are based in San Francisco and the majority of the employee population is based in Guadalajara, it is difficult to be recognized for your work. My perspective is that promotions have become much more scarce in the company unless you are 1) based out of the San Francisco office, or 2) close friends with someone influential. In my experience, managers have been quite self-interested, and not genuinely dedicated to mentoring or helping their direct reports advance. Of course, this does not apply to ALL managers, but there are enough to make it a notable "con". There is a very gossipy culture that struggles to give employees feedback and generally prefers to discuss the negativity and form judgements amongst themselves... Transparency as far as business goals are concerned has improved over the years, but and honest communication is a constant battle.

      Pros

      Wizeline has grown dramatically for 2 years now, and the expectation is that this will not only continue but increase in the years to come. This is reflected not only in revenue, headcount, or offices but in the number of amazing projects you have the chance to work on. The company has brought some of the most talented people from several different countries and has assembled a team that takes the organization to its full potential. Having the chance to be part of this, learning, contributing, and facing new challenges every day, are the main things why I decided to join Wizeline in the first place. The executive team recognizes that people are the most valuable asset of the company, and Wizeline makes sure the employees have anything they need to excel at their job.

      Cons

      Hyper-growth brings a variety of issues to the structure, the processes and the organization itself. The exec-team works hard to mitigate and prevent this though.
