Very Challenging work place.

Workings hours on average is 9 hours a day. Target and quality driven environment with quick turn around times for investigations and enquiries. Planning and organizing of work is extremely important. Selling yourself, your expertise and knowledge to the different Departments and to keep their confidence is difficult but challenging. Consistent progress feedback is of the utmost importance. Training of employees in other Departments of your capabilities as fraud specialist, winning their confidence and identification of fraud and/or red flags indicating potential fraud, keeping them informed of the latest trends and is very important. Keep the Departments satisfied with your product. The best part of the job is the freedom to do what you do best, with minimum interference from Management.

Pros

Job security and satisfaction.

Cons

Office politics, favouritism.

Controlling, unhappy and stressful environment and quick staff turnover

Emotionally draining, stressful and unhappy. How to deal with clients Unsatisfied, controlling and emotionally abusive There is a very quick staff turnover, but the staff that I have had the opportunity to get to know were very pleasant The emotional abuse and the fact that the Boss is never satisfied and a total control freak, I have never worked in this type of environment Knocking off in the afternoon at normal knock off time

Pros

No pros

Cons

Working till 8 or 10 at night without appreciation

Exciting and stressful

This position is commission based so it is stressful when it comes to not having a stable income however, it is exciting when you present to clients, there is a nice culture within the company and the company is dynamic.

Pros

Commission structure

Cons

No basic or benefits
