I worked at First Data as a contractor (less than a year)

Pros

-Stability
-You know exactly what you're doing day to day
-Comfortable location and amenities

Cons

-Corporate gives managers little support, so they're too stressed and busy to make time for you... be prepared to answer your own questions, or wait weeks for follow-ups or needed materials

Advice to ManagementAdvice

-Treat your managers better. They're not robots. They're overworked to the extreme and it takes a toll on the entire office.
