Big company that acts like a big company

Sales (Former Employee)
Houston, TX

I worked at First Data as a contractor for more than 3 years

ProsAble to build good internal network with peers
WFH environment
Good base pay and benefits plan

ConsUpper management delivers unclear messages regarding the "vision" of the company
Favoritism for people/divisions causes obvious rifts
Confusing compensation plan
Biggest $8b company you've never heard of - constant question: Who is FD? What do they do?
Cut travel budget for sales engineers to support in-field, customer facing presentations

Advice to Senior ManagementGet a single platform, update technology, better promote the company, go public already... get out from under KKR, maybe you'll make better decisions and not walk on eggshells all the time.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Pay attention to upcoming technologies. (Handheld devices, mobile device… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
