I worked at First Data

Pros

I loved working at First Data. There was an excellent fun, yet professional culture, always striving for excellence, providing fun social events on behalf of the company, and a strong leadership structure. Employees really were rewarded fairly, and First Data always encouraged opportunities to progress throughout the business.

Cons

Not everyone was necessarily university educated, the structure changed so often, there is a high rate of people resigning... and then coming back.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue trying to retain employees by offering competitive salary packages, but more importantly, by managing and promoting brand awareness throughout the industry. Everyone wants to work for a company with a reputation they are proud of.

    I worked at First Data

    Pros

    Decent compensation, good experience to work for a large corporation. Great place to learn structure and the correct business processes.

    Cons

    It's also a con to work for a large corporation, however I think it should be something everyone should have the experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leadership team has innovative ideas, they should work more closely with those that can implement those ideas. I believe it will make them more successful.

    I have been working at First Data

    Pros

    People are good and once we are hired, stay there for a long time. I am with the company for over 6 years, but I am the newest in the team!! (except outsource contractors).

    Cons

    Promotion freeze for last 3 years; this year, no raise for all employees. Many of IT is outsourced to cut the cost, and I see no place for advancement.
