    I worked at DFC Global full-time

    Pros

    Good IT management team, a lot of collective experience

    Cons

    Losing people at a steady clip, and a lot of these people are 'the good people' not the dead wood

    Advice to Management

    It's no longer 1995 (or even 2005), your approach to things like 'work from home' is outdated. Your approach is creating (or created?) a culture of clock watchers.
