    I worked at Travelex part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Meeting 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.

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have 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.

    Pros

    Got in contact with many people who I helped very good

    Cons

    • I have trained, coordinated and inspired employees to do a better job in a shorter amount of time, thereby expanding the reputation and income of our organization.
    • Revitalized communication between upper and middle management.
    • Studied the company’s vision statement so I was better prepared to carry it out in my daily tasks.
    • Took a communications class on my own to improve my my skills with coworkers and clients.
    • Presented the company’s products and services in an honest and above-board manner, thereby drawing new clients and building the bottom line.
    • Learned from (and shared with) others new and innovative ideas that helped broaden our clients base and increase revenue.
    • Initiated an idea for expediting processes that was adopted by the company and subsequently credited to me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advice because everything was good organized and they tread there employers very good
