    Offering quality service to customers and staff.

    Travel Money Advisor (Former Employee)
    Llantrisant, Rhondda Cynon Taff, Wales (UK)

    ProsMeeting new people, developing new skills, learning a new trade, career development, being the face of one of the leading companies in the world. Excellent rates on foreign currency. Chance of career progression.

    ConsLack of support from upper management, unrealistic expectations from upper management in terms of role responsibility and staffing management.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHave clear procedures in place for staff management in the event of sickness etc. It is unrealistic to expect other staff members to pick up the slack indefinitely. Provide more support and contsructive criticism if targets are not being met. Negative attitudes and beratement are not conducive for staff morale.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    • Learned from (and shared with) others new and innovative ideas that helped broaden our clients base and increase revenue.
