Great company to work for

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at MoneyGram International full-time for more than a year

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
