Pros

easy to get time off
flexible work hours
downtown DC
Gym in the building
coffee maker (although the coffee tastes awful)

Cons

compensation
HR department sides with Management
Managers who are in their position due to friends and family
biases that carry over between departments regardless of ones work ethic.

Advice to Management

Try and retain your top talent by paying them a competitive wage and get rid of some of the people who are barely competent enough to correctly complete their day to day responsibilities. This would help morale and show others that you respect and admire hard-work.

    I worked at Travelex full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Travelex is a unique company to work for, combining the retail and banking world into one dynamic MSB. The spirit is friendly and entrepreneurial, willing to take on new risks and adventures and see what lies around the corner. The people who work there are generally great, and I was able to develop long-lasting connections during my many years in various roles. They strive for excellency and work together globally as a team. It is not uncommon to report to a boss in another country, or be in regular communication with people from around the globe.

    Cons

    The pay is not excellent in many cases, however their willingness to train and advance employees as well as the unique opportunities afforded makes up for much of this. There are very limited opportunities for advancement though - you could be there several years before changing roles. There also tends to be a lack of communication when dealing with structural changes and possible role eliminations - these are sometimes not communicated until the last minute. Changes in vision sometimes come with the departure of many tenured employees, which can potentially make things more difficult in the long run.

    Advice to Management

    Loyalty to long-term, knowledegable employees might serve the company better in the long run.
