    I have been working at Travelex full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    MNC Culture
    No delay in Salary payments
    Various Bonus scheme

    Cons

    Unachivable targets set by higher management
    Unprocessed area and very slow progress in process adoption
    Head of department is filling his own men in different areas of senior management
    No rewards and recognition for Hard working and dedicated people.
    Only talking tom get rewarded.
    Less salaries compare with Market
    Contract employees are values than full time resources.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start Valuing old resource before pampering new people.
    Start thinking in professional way, wasting lots of cost in unwanted contractors in various projects, who are doing nothing and not adding any values.

    Pros

    Provides training, but on weekends, so if you want to lear need to sacrifice personal life a bit.
    Nice people to work with, specially my team.
    Transport facility is there.

    Cons

    No proper management in the project, requirements keeps on coming even if the testing is in UAT phase. Everything is urgent.
    Did not try to retain people.
    Proper management is still under construction, no proper processes.
    Management did not stand for there employee, if some one from UK says something they just blindly follow ask you to stay late even if it is of no use.
    Promotion policy is not at all clear, one of my friend is still Software engineer even after having exp of 5 years.
    Cafeteria is not good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please try to retain employees, at least those who work.
    Improve the cafeteria, food is not all good.
    Vehicles in the transport are not good.
