  • Most of my co-workers were great team players and really good people (in 5 reviews)

Cons

    Pros

    With just 2700 employees, this is not a huge company but it does have a massively global footprint. If you're a go-getter who thrives in a non-structured environment and can figure things out for yourself, this is a GREAT place to work. For those who need strict processes and structure, this may not be the place for you. I absolutely love it because I feel I can be part of the creation of structure and processes. It is definitely a start-up type company, but has been around a long time. They are looking for people to help them innovate. There are many great leaders who are here to help effect change and progress which makes it an exciting place to be.

    Cons

    The company is in an aggressive change mode which can be challenging at times. We are moving very fast and it can be hard to keep.

    Advice to Management

    Communication has improved - keep that up! We have great senior leaders across the globe who are striving to make the company the best it can be.

    Pros

    I have been working at MoneyGram for around 2 years, and have to say that there are a lot of smart, friendly and dedicated people working there. It's fun working at a company this size - it gives me the opportunity to be an expert/point of contact in one subject, while also doing a variety of things day to day. In a previous role I worked for a much larger company, where I was responsible for doing a lot of the same thing 80% of the time, and felt far removed from org leaders or people of any real influence.

    Cons

    They have recently gone through a reorganization, which means there is some "storming and norming", but I really enjoy the new people they brought in. I'm ok with change - it keeps things fresh!

    Advice to Management

    Continue to hire more good people!

    Pros

    - Work-Life Balance - opportunity to work from home, as appropriate
    - Business Process Improvement focus - many global projects, with opportunity to work directly on change management initiatives
    - Personal Growth - opportunities for advancement, if you perform well
    - Benefits - Great improvement in total Benefits package this year (2015) - inexpensive medical premiums, with a lower deductible than last year; 4 weeks for vacation/sick/personal; 10 paid holidays; nice company 401k match - definitely stronger than 2014!
    - Communication - New employee intranet site - increased visibility into organization, more direct communication to employees

    Cons

    Multiple legacy systems for employee information. However, company is getting new global platform in 2nd quarter 2015, so that will be changing soon.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to communicate with employees, and to listen to employee feedback. It is working!

    Pros

    MoneyGram is TRULY a global organization. I get the chance to work with individuals all over the world. It is a place that if you are willing to roll up your sleeves and work hard, your efforts are rewarded. The people at MoneyGram are fun and dedicated to the cause!

    Cons

    Because it's a global organization, I have had to adjust my 'waking up' schedule. Sometimes we have early morning calls, but it's worth it to get to work with my peers abroad.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to share what is going on with your leaders and ask them to make sure it funnels down.
