Embattled Company with too many ongoing corporate risks and overstretched management

I have been working at MoneyGram International full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Dynamic industry with lots of potential, especially for a 2nd player to a much larger leader.

Cons

Management is unprepared to lead company strategy and employees, proven by many of my colleagues leaving, many shareholder lawsuits, $100 mil fine, DOJ Monitor for 5 years, over-reliance on WalMart, disbanding of departments with no consideration for employees....

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Reconsider the quality of the team and the way it approaches business on all scales, not just patching up symptoms.

    I have been working at MoneyGram International

    Pros

    Rapidly growing company, helps many people. I have awesome coworkers and a great relationship with my department leadership. Talk to a wide range of customers every day.

    Cons

    Not much opportunity for advancement. The company seems to be moving away from an emphasis on customer service toward company-wide cost cutting. It is a shame so many people must lose their jobs in the next year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Moving jobs outside US can't be the only way to cut costs. I predict fraud and chargeback rate will skyrocket. Keep MGO operations in US.

    The Management is not interested in their employees at all. If you have any question, idea, issue they do not want it.

    Pros

    Vacation, a lot when you first start.

    Cons

    No leadership, No communication, No flexibility, No employee interest, a lot of "leadership" talking behind employees backs with other employees and promotions are given to cover quota not filling with employee's by qualifications.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start listening to your employees. The ones who do the day to day are the ones you should be getting advice from. Be more involved in their personal lives you have a lot of good people who have everyday issues just like you do but because they are not at your level they do not have the flexibility you do.
