    Pros

    Office culture is unique. People for the most part are trying to do what is right for the company. Benefits are ok.

    Cons

    Lack of communication and clear direction from the leadership team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There needs to be more clear direction from leadership. Seems to have a lack of ownership on projects. Lack of agreement among leadership on what the priorities are for the business.

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

    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.
