    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    First Data needs to take a fresh look at it's business processes and systems. So many are outdated that other upstart companies may pass them.

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

    Pros

    Great place to learn the merchant services game. Laptop and Blackberry supplied.

    Cons

    Managers that all love to micro-manage. Unreal quotas. Poor customer service. FD should have never got unto the POS equipment business. The company is not equipt for install and service.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more open to new ideas coming from the field and not only from the product group.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
