    Pros

    The company and work culture help you build your vision & deliver the best. Everyone has a passion to learn more & has a hunger to do more.

    Cons

    Lack of policies in many area, HR has to go long way

    Pros

    One of the few organisations which gives horizontal as well as vertical exposure and an opportunity to lead.
    One of the best placed GDC/GIC (500 odd employees) to offer varied roles and opportunities
    Teams can decide everything except few nuances which is great cause if you invest, put efforts, nothing stops you here.
    Good potential is recognised across the board
    Organisation is adopting latest delivery standards fast, though change implementation is bit chaotic but it is happening
    If I am serious and concerned, so is the organisation

    Cons

    Bit perception based and typecasting but that's obvious as it's everywhere

    Advice to Management

    Invest in breadth of services, BAU is always critical in captives but we need to treat change, transformation and BAU with different yard sticks and approach

    If you are really talented stay away from people who spreads negativity.

    Arrange the bus facility till andheri rather than individual cab home drop.

    Pros

    Work Culture is good !!
    Flexible Time!!
    Admin is really good!
    Good salary!

    Cons

    Too much politics and favouritism

    Upper management blindly trust managers and doesnt verify if information received is correct or not & takes decision on them only.

    None of managers are leaders , instead of motivating they keeps you demotivated.

    Managers doesnt want to manage people they want to rule

    Managers doesnt take responsibilities and ownership if something goes wrong and always ready to blame others

    Appraisals are done on basis on how much time you spend or how good you are with manager not on how much you have worked.

    New opportunities are given to only Manager's Pet and those deserves takes back sit.

    Advice to Management

    HR and Upper Management , Verify feedback you get. 80% of time its not true what you get from managers.

    Face of travelex should be those people who deserves and not people who are closed to managers.

    Pros

    On-time Salary, Good collaborative environment, Decent travel opportunities if you are in Managers good book.

    Cons

    Pathetic Top Management, Favouritsim, Yes Sir culture. People are not allowed to do what they were hired for. Rather they are made to do things which are inconsequential and irrelevant. Too many and too frequent meetings consume most of the productive hours. No one bothers to find the rot and address it, rather they turn their eyes away from the problem assuming nothing is wrong. Centre is on the verge of collapse due to faulty decision makers.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of your non performing Sr Management.

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

    Pros

    Good office interiors - at least the new one
    Home drop facility
    Descent overseas travel

    Cons

    Poor management skills. I really doubt if any of the heads of functions are even capable of getting job elsewhere. No culture of meritocracy and only favorites prevailed.
    Some of these members are not even full time graduates leave aside trained managers

    HR, which should be face of organization is only bothered for her looks and personal gains and position rather than what is right for broader organization.
    Policy changes cost cutting is prevalent since last few months
    Lot of people are leaving for better opportunities and career progression elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Get some professional and outward looking management. If that is not possible at least don't let someone of that statue leave the place
    Understand difference between cash flow management and cost cutting
    Wearing suite or tie is one thing and having a view as well as voice for something is other.
    Seek some substance in leadership instead of people who would say Yes Sir or mimic your actions
    Realize attrition pain rather than treating this as an outcome of policy change
    You cannot solve problems with same thinking and people who have created it in first place.
