    Great company to work for

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsMoneyGram 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.

    ConsAs 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.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    decent company with many positions given you have the education & experience

    Help Desk Analyst (Current Employee)
    Minneapolis, MN

    Prossemi relaxed environment , work with decent people and do not mind what i do

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

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

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Best Money Transfer Service Worldwide

    Software Engineer IV (Current Employee)
    Saint Louis Park, MN

    ProsProvides much needed competition for Western Union by offering superior competitive services at a lower cost. Without MoneyGram, Western Union would surely be able to have nearly a monopoly and would charge higher fees for its services. The ability to work remotely can save money on gas. I like that my desk phone is a direct number so I don't have to give an extension like I have at some companies I have worked for in the past. Having an attached parking ramp to park in for free is definitely a plus. While I might miss the skyway in downtown Minneapolis and St. Paul, I do not miss the high priced parking they have.

    ConsBenefits could be better as health co-payment are higher than any place I have ever worked before. There is way too much management and not enough people to do the real work in IT. Too many people in too little of space as they are moving people from other floors to one. Cubicles are inadequate for some jobs for the work involved.

    Solid company with good management

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Saint Louis Park, MN

    ProsWork-life balance, flexibility to work from home, free work out room and covered parking, competent co-workers, many different tea selections in the break rooms. Great top-level management.

    ConsCommunications can be a challenge when dealing with outsourcing companies and workers. Volume of work can be tough to balance at times.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNone.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
