    I have been working at Western Union (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great compensation/benefits. Company is starting to truly transform and stock price is reflecting progress. Outstanding global opportunity and focus on philanthropy through the WU Foundation is excellent.

    Cons

    Sometimes WU can be slow to change. Senior leadership should drive more innovation, quicker, to compete with the marketplace.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the focus on transformation and building leadership capabilities.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Western Union in June 2015.

    Interview

    not bad, not great. Manager was pleasant and happy to see candidates. Human Resources person not the smartest.It took a while to get back to me. I finally had to ask what the stautus of the interview was as they did not communicate with me
