  1. Not the worst but needs improvement

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at DFC Global

    Pros

    Flexible work environment, some really good and knowledgeable people, it's a all-hands on deck kind of company but it allows for good experience and growth

    Cons

    every project is a top priority, company culture is relatively non-existent even though they are trying to improve it

    Pros

    Good IT management team, a lot of collective experience

    Cons

    Losing people at a steady clip, and a lot of these people are 'the good people' not the dead wood

    Advice to Management

    It's no longer 1995 (or even 2005), your approach to things like 'work from home' is outdated. Your approach is creating (or created?) a culture of clock watchers.

    Pros

    Open-mind culture, room for active participation, innovation is rewarded and welcome

    Cons

    Time schedules can be tiring due to differences in timezones if you work in a managerial position

    Advice to Management

    Focus a bit (currently inexistent) on perks and bonus as means to motivate profesional engagement and improve results. You will see what motivated people can do. Average reward cultivates average performers.


  9. Clueless top management, huge egos at the top all squabbling for position

    Pros

    Nice people in mid-lower management

    Cons

    Too many huge egos, too little financial services experience.

    Advice to Management

    The constant power battles at the top need to stop.

    Pros

    Work with great part-time people who are just trying to get by. They did pay the MSP for only working 20 hours, this was okay.

    Cons

    Some leaders I found to be very good and others were simply horrible. It all starts at the top and rolls down. It also sucks having to take money from those on CPP....like they are already not broke enough.

    Advice to Management

    Ask for more frontline opinions and trust they know your customers better than you think they do.


  11. The culture is changing, but was too slow during my era

    Pros

    None unless you want an education in politics

    Cons

    Politics and a very slowly evolving culture that is taking the company away from the ol' boys club; however, it's too slow

    Advice to Management

    Open your minds about change
