    Pros

    Medium-sized company not bogged down with excessive process/bureaucracy. Every employee has the opportunity to make a positive impact if they chose to take the initiative. Great place for people who like to build new things. Competitive compensation. Global company with opportunities to work with people all over the world.

    Cons

    As a medium-sized company, there are not always resources to provide the same level of employee support/training as larger companies. People who are not self motivated and driven to excel may not do well.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the investments in training and development. Support initiatives to help the entire organization understand customer experience.

    Pros

    I have only been working at MoneyGram International for 9 months, but it has been a very positive experience to date. There are smart, energetic and enthusiastic folks working all over the world. If you want to work in a global organization, MoneyGram is the place to be and the Information Technology organization is a great place to experience the full global spectrum.

    Cons

    MoneyGram is interesting because in some areas, it is an older company, and yet in other areas of the company, it acts and feels much more like a start-up or younger company. While not necessarily a con, it does create some interesting challenges and opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to empower your employees to do the right things, at the right times, for the right reasons.

    Pros

    Great opportunity for self-starter. Those who are able to navigate through ambiguous situations and possess a drive to seek answers and solutions will be successful at MoneyGram. Industry regulations are constantly changing and it is a great place for those who want to improve processes and make a difference. The company is seeking to improve their benefits in order to attract talent. I feel that MoneyGram does encourage work-life balance. The environment is friendly and makes you want to come to work.

    Cons

    The company is adjusting to a lot of changes due to relocation strategy and regulatory requirements. Benefits are currently not up to par with larger firms, but they are improving.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work in hiring people who are the right fit. MoneyGram promotes a positive work environment driven by qualified, pro-active, creative, diverse, and compassionate individuals.

    Pros

    MoneyGram is a great company to work for. They offer competitive salary and outstanding employee benefits. The company is technologically savvy and incorporates the latest and greatest when it comes to this area. The leadership at the top is competent and the company is growing.

    Cons

    As in most very large companies communication is an issue.The department I worked in was very high stress due to frequently changing priorities. I think the departmental leadership tries to accommodate other departments too much instead of either saying "no" or at the very least, "not now, but in a few weeks". In this regard they create some of their stress.

    Cons

    management lacks the experience and know how to properly lead the company in the right direction

    Advice to Management

    dont look at what things will save you today , they will cost you more than what you save up front in the long run.
