Always Changing

Applications Developer (Current Employee)
Omaha, NE

I have been working at First Data full-time for less than a year

ProsComfortable Atmosphere; Flex Scheduling for my Application; Cafeteria in the 6855 building; Employee rewards system that allows you to acquire a variety of items, or donate the rewards to charity.

Cons401k Match program is going away on Jan.1 2014, being replaced by internal stock options; Constant Company Reorginizations, meaning layoffs are always a looming threat. In the financial business, therefore you can possibly be on call for emergencies on the weekends and nights.

Advice to Senior ManagementMy management always seems to do a good job keeping us informed and fighting battles for you if needed. I can't say anything bad about the managment at this point.
