    Overall good experience, but outsourcing led to too many issues.

    I worked at First Data

    Pros

    First Data has great benefits for employees, including medical and 401k. The employees are generally friendly and the environment in Houston was great to work in.

    Cons

    Constant downsizing and outsourcing resulted in employees constantly worrying about their jobs. As more sites were consolidated and outsourced to contract work, employee layoffs were common.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management often seemed out of touch with the lower level employees. Decisions on directions were not usually made on the merits, but on who was in the position and what they got out of it (i.e. kickbacks). Listen to your employees, as they are the lifeblood of the organization.

    Pros

    Not many at all really. tenured staff and good pay, decent benefits, great vacation, good sick pay, flexible schedules, good people

    Cons

    Lots and lots of issues. don't promote from within, good old boys network, don't treat everyone equally, lots of poor leadership

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    pay for performance, give opportunitities, give accountability, let leaders solve problems, give freedom in budgeting and staffing, promote when due
