    I have been working at Cambridge Global Payments full-time for less 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 Outdated technology.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 structure is convoluted and unfair, KPI's on which you are judged are calculated indeterminately.

    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 to accept or reject the base salary and benefits packaged offered. You should only accept a position if you are happy with the offer.

    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 training. This is a job that requires the ability to learn and grow. If your plan is to be here for under 18 months then you are wasting your time.

    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

    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
