A great corporation but too focused on the core products
Written by Business Development Manager (Current Employee) from London on 4 July 2018
The company is fantastic and it's core products have served them well for so many years which is great to see and I'm sure they will for years to come but the business has some really innovative business units that struggles to get the focus needed to take it to the next level. The cross border payments/FX Sales business is a specialized unit that has - more ... performed tremendously over the years, the founding GM of the department, Paul Hargreaves, was fantastic at growing the business and keeping the teams engaged but alot of that has been lost since the integration within the wider business units. - less
ProsWorking for a brand that is so well known and respected is a joy
ConsAlways re-structuring the organisation which causes distraction, It's fairly difficult to move across business units as they tend to sway towards product experienced
