    I have been working at First Data full-time (more than a year)


    A company totally focused on changing from being a back office utility to being integral to helping their 6 million clients grow their business. The changes are reflected, too, in how the company treats its owner-associates as just that -- owners. Everyone gets stock in First Data, and the path toward that stock being a very valuable part of your personal wealth is becoming clearer every day.


    First Data is a big, complex, global company with many different businesses in many different areas, so it naturally takes some time for that message to sink in to all of its 24,000 owner-associates. Still, CEO Frank Bisignano joined First Data in the middle of 2013 and has already become longer-tenured than his predecessors since the 2007 LBO. As each month passes, his message about helping clients grow and building a meritocracy is getting through.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep communicating the message, keep sharing client success stories, not just from senior leadership, but from among all of the owner-associates who are working directly with clients to help drive the economy.
