    I worked at Western Union full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Was a great job and place to work at one time, before it all went overseas and everyone lost their jobs. Worked with the best people, and many gave a large part of our lives to help the company grow and do well.

    Cons

    Moved overseas, putting many people out of work, while the company was doing fine, all in the name of greed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing left to say that would matter at this point.

    I worked at Western Union full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Their new digital venture may bear fruit. Good cash flow. Nice, driven people at the middle management level.

    Cons

    People often not empowered to do what needs to be done. Ultimately WU needs to decide whether to move into the 21st Century or not. The management seems like a parody of Fortune 500 companies at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Decide that you're really going to care about your customers. Weed out the products that are predatory. Build back the love for the brand that the Telegram WU had. There is a huge opportunity for building these feelings back, but your products are at odds with the public's trust.
