Freelance Writer in Remote
on October 5, 2022

Had a good gig doing some freelance work. Was bad well and on time, though the project more generally seemed to a bit disorganized. Pay dropped and then the job disappeared when the market crashed. Would work for again.

Pros: - Fully remote - Crypto experience - Relatively well known brand in the industry Cons: - Very poor leadership and management who are inexperienced - Toxic culture - Complete lack of transparency - Non-existent HR team for a company of the size and the recruiting team is an absolute mess - Rather uninteresting work with no innovation. The company was one of the first but mainly mimic competitors have already done years ago

Client Engagement Specialist in Remote

I was super excited to be given the opportunity to work for Kraken. Very honoured, at the time. But as the time goes by, it was all promises but no show. Pay was low, no weekend rates, no public holiday rates, poor management, long processes to be promoted, requests take ages to resolve, eg; missing payment took me 4 months to be compensated. Can’t forget about those last minute meetings, and last minute cancellation of meetings. I think they forgot that we all have a life. They would make you learn other departments and multi-task between 2-4 different roles, but not increase your pay. I was promised to be given a permanent position after proving I was worthy and committed, but that never happened.

Went from basically minimum wage, to salary, pretty quick. That's the good. As for the bad and ugly, I went from being one of the most productive and best workers (spoken of, highly, by senior management in a public setting, and advertised that everyone should treat clients the way I do) to being let go with no warning, despite being told repeatedly that everything was going well in terms of my productivity from my supervisor at the time. Don't reccomend working for them if you respect yourself, or if you want to express yourself. If your manager believes that you don't fit the "culture" suddenly (a lot of these cases were high school levels of petty drama from a supervisor to those under their supervision), you can be let go.

I have learned a lot through the time I work at Kraken. How to work as a team and especially how to keep your personal information safe. A really good place to work.
