    I have been working at Transact full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Strong support in terms of personal and professional development
    Company functions such as summer and tax year end gatherings
    Secondments and further learning are encouraged
    The open and honest feedback environment
    Committed to changing whatever necessary (internal and external) to provide the best service
    Cares about its employees and offers a variety of discounts and benefits
    Rewards hard work and ambition

    Cons

    Top level can be slightly disillusioned with the COPS employees
    Bonus is one size fits all rather than performance based

    Advice to Management

    More face to face meeting opportunities with COPS and advisers may make the company more appealing with a personal service
