I worked at First Data full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Large Market Share in Transaction Processing, Very well known with many influential partnerships. There are many opportunities to improve processes and procedures. Worldwide presence and lots of opportunities to grow. They have a great set of values and corporate vision.

Cons

Cultural change is very difficult as there are many competing priorities and many silos. Like with many companies, there are many cross functional support departments that are not necessarily aligned with their goals. This frustration makes change and priority alignment difficult at times.

    Pros

    Great benefits and great people!

    They were open 24/7, so you could be working overnight. I never had to but it was still a possibility.
