      I have been working at Cambridge FX full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Great learning experience for those interested in exploring risk management solutions and hedging.s

      Cons

      1.) Company culture is non-existent. (No cohesion between upper management and C-suite.) 2.) No clear vision or Sales Targets. Consultative selling approach is highly flawed. (Most of the time you're not even clear on what you're selling or why.) 3.) The company is in disarray, very disorganized. (Toxic work environment) 4.) Outdated technology. No real resources (Like an updated CRM or logging system) 5.) Commission...

        Pros

        If you are a go getter and have experience in FX or Treasury Sales this is the place to be. Been in the industry for 20+ plus years. Cambridge has the best technology and service of anyone hands down. The payment process works well. When a customer service issue occurs it is handled quickly. Advice for any position: There are a few comments about salary and benefits. You have the opportunity when you are hired...

        Cons

        Cambridge is a great place to work but you are required to work. If you have experience in FX and Sales you will immediately see the benefits. If not, you should be prepared to work at learning about Cambridge, FX and Treasury. You will be selling primarily to people who have business backgrounds. This does take effort on your part. There are many experienced people to help you. Just don't expect to have classroom...

        you finish at 5pm- that is the best part

        Cons

        company does not match your 401K, don't give you salary raise, have the lowest salaries in the finance industry, and gives you 10 days vacation per year. New employees will pay 50% for their health insurance plan.

        Pros

        Not really many pros. some people are enjoyable to work with. Others are not.

        Cons

        It feels like there is little to no upward movement. Eventually you realize that this place is just a stop till your next job.

          Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

          I worked at Cambridge FX full-time

          Pros

          If you work hard, you will make a lot of money. Best online system in the business. Top non-bank provider outside of Western Union as far as compensation and corporate solutions go

          Cons

          Typical company politics can prohibit career growth as well as sales. Way harder to succeed if you are younger and not a management favorite

          Advice to Management

          Do internal interviews with front-line sales employees without their managers knowledge. You will be surprised to hear some honest feedback that could help the company have better management practices
