    Pros

    great culture; interesting business model; potential for lucrative profits if they can figure out how to streamline activities and focus on core profit making

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    give employees more room to do what they are paid to do and ask them for their opinion

    Lots of misdirection and miscommunication. Approvals are often put off, which impedes the workflow, and causes every-changing deadlines.

    I worked at EZCORP full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The financial pockets that they have allow them to purchase smaller " mom & pop" businesses and turn them into thriving stars.

    Cons

    They are primarily a pawn based business and when you step away from what you know and try to reinvent the wheel, that's when you will fall

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stick with what has made you successful. When you take over smaller businesses, get to know that model before you try to change things.

    I have been working at EZCORP full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    - They pay on industry standard for the IT group any way.
    - Change in management has moved the company forward to getting back on track.
    - The company has a huge interest in the community and allows for volunteer opportunities.

    Cons

    - Though there is a full suite of benefits, they are pretty lack luster. Had to pay the same amount for an emergency visit, that we did for an emergency hospital stay with another insurance.

    - Executive management does not allow for enough positions in the IT department and spreads the admins way to thin. Infrastructure is a heartbeat away from permanently crashing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Beef up your IT department before the infrastructure crumbles and business comes to a grinding halt.
