    I worked at DFC Global full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Work with great part-time people who are just trying to get by. They did pay the MSP for only working 20 hours, this was okay.

    Cons

    Some leaders I found to be very good and others were simply horrible. It all starts at the top and rolls down. It also sucks having to take money from those on CPP....like they are already not broke enough.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ask for more frontline opinions and trust they know your customers better than you think they do.

    Pros

    None unless you want an education in politics

    Cons

    Politics and a very slowly evolving culture that is taking the company away from the ol' boys club; however, it's too slow

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked at DFC Global as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Liked the work, location and nature of technical involvement.
    Kept me busy and was close to my home.

    Cons

    Horrible business model, payday lending is very predatory

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't treat IT staff like used toilet paper, people actually liked working there
    and did a great job. They threw IT staff to the street in the blink of an eye to
    save a quarter.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    It's no longer 1995 (or even 2005), your approach to things like 'work from home' is outdated.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.

    Made to work in ways that were not customer, but profit centric

    I worked at DFC Global

    Pros

    It's easy to shine or keep up as many of the staff lack basic business skills - right up the ladder

    Cons

    Profit is the only focus and the profit gets paid to a small number of people. In a year when record profits arrived, staff got a 2% pay rise, but the UK MDis reputed to have earned $1m according to reports on the net...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you plan and actually have, and share a 5 year plan, customers might feature as being important and so prop depuis be proud of best they do

    Rapidly Expanding Company with Good Prospects for Growth

    I have been working at DFC Global

    Pros

    Expansions bring with it good opportunities for personal development and also travel internationally.
    There is minimal management interference in your day-to-day work load and you just left to 'get on with it'. While this may not suit most people it is a refreshing change for me.

    Cons

    Legislative changes may kerb the current business model and things cold change overnight.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less meetings....more doings.....

    Pros

    great benefits and flexible work schedule

    Cons

    no structured training and no feedback from leaders

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    High turnover rate is due to the fact that the persons in leadership positions do not possess great leadership skills.

    They taught me many things, and some I am able to use outside of work.

    I have been working at DFC Global

    Pros

    You are able to fine tune your customer service skills and develop your evaluative and analytical skills. Benefits are good. You must work with cash all day.

    Cons

    For security reasons, you are unable to leave until your shift is done, your schedule changes week to week, many stores are open 7 days a week and you must be available in many cases and two shifts per day, except Sundays, usually.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I thought leadership made many good decisions over the years. Their strong focal points were on profit, security and people, and rightfully so.
