    Pros

    Great company, great people. Overall an awesome place to work. I was a contract employee and I really enjoyed working there.

    Cons

    The commute wasn't great. I didn't like the staffing agency that Western Union used. Some of the people I did work for left out a lot of details about what I needed to do so I had to frequently ask questions.
