Great Benefits
Good Salary
Good middle management

Cons

First Data management is awful. All my customers, Fortune 50 companies, were angry and looking for alternatives to First Data.
No customer focus.
Top Down, no leadership.
They took an big box mentaility and tried to apply this to a service company.
No respect for work/life balance.
You will get no benefit for working 70 to 80 hours a week while your peers work 30 or 40.
No accountability.

Advice to Management

Fire yourselves. If there is a C in your title leave.

    Pros

    Able to move within organization.

    Cons

    I can't really say anything bad about it, it was an ideal starter job out of college and prepared me for the position I ended up taking with another organization.
