    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 Management

    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.


  2. Relaxed atmosphere with innovative workers.
