Fast Paced company with too many unknowns

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Atlanta, GA

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

ProsIf you work in corporate, you will not be bored as there is barely any dull moment. Challenges are common and changes happen on a daily basis

ConsManagement is cut throat and they are not loyal to their employees. Too many unknowns ass to whether you will be working the next day or not! Changed management so many times in 5 years... Compensation is not great and people who are full of BS get promoted. Too many VPs and SVPs don't know what they are talking about. Been stripping all the benefits off. No matching 401K, poor medical coverage (blaming Obamacare, PLEASE give us a break!!!), taking away all the incentives just to take the company public. In a nutshell, workforce is not valued as it should!

Advice to Senior ManagementHow do you expect people to stay in a company that doesn't seem to value them at all????

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
