    I worked at DFC Global full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Invest in technology, listen to employee opinions, group atmosphere, very helpful people, not too much pressure. Pretty Good Place :)

    Cons

    A bit strict with time of coming in and going home. Pay is ok but could be better with bonuses, days off also ok but could have more personal days, need more vacation days.

    Advice to Management

    Let your employees come I and go home at a more flexible hour. Otherwise a good place to work. Throw in more vacation days please.

    I have been working at DFC Global full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great support from managers, allow to make mistakes and hold accountable for success. Distance work, sometimes from home is appreciated.

    Cons

    For some manager the salary does not matches the level of responsibility.

    Advice to Management

    Thanks for the great support and opportunities for developing professional skills. Think that in the long run you get what you pay for, and it wold make sense to develop compensation schemes that will retain valuable employees. If you look around you will see that "the good ones" leave after some time.

    Pros

    DFC has many different brands in their portfolio. There are lots of opportunities for growth. Anyone who is good at their job and are prepared to work hard can feel challenged and engaged. I work with a great team of people who are positive and supportive of one another. I feel lucky to be working for such a great employer.

    Cons

    I can't think of any aside from I wish that there was more hours in a day to get everything that I would like to get done.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your staff and engage your team to get the most out of them. There is always room for improvement in any company.

    Pros

    The manager I had was the best. This company also recognizes its employees with employee appreciation week and christmas party. It is a fun place to work and meet new people

    Cons

    This place does not pay enough for all of the work they do. When I worked there I did so much and put up with so much from the customers that I know I was very underpaid

    Advice to Management

    Don' worry so much on making the Managment in P.A so happy. Focus more on the customers

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at DFC Global full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    For me it is the commute.
    Pay is decent and competitive. I have done the same job for significantly less pay for bigger companies.
    Smaller size allows one to wear many hats.
    Holidays are generous
    Teams are cooperative and flexible with each other, making it a decent work environment.
    Flexibility to work from home as the need arises

    Cons

    Benefits including 401k not as generous as other companies.
    Vacation time accrual.
    Big/frequent layoffs ( though that seems to be the norm for a lot of companies)
