    I worked at Western Union full-time for 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 have been working at Western Union full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great place to grow international financial services experience. Lots of opportunity to move laterally and explore different areas of the business.

    Cons

    Company is going through a huge transition but without a well communicated vision of the future. A lot of the changes are to undo what the previous restructuring did. Management has no idea what it is doing. They are constantly talking about cutting costs but fail to waste money in the silliest things like unocuppied offices.

    Favoritism runs amock. No merit based promotions or pay. If you are friends with the right person you can get a pretty sweet upwards career track, otherwise, be happy to stay in your spot of move laterally non-stop.

    Not a good place for women right now. We used to have a lot of female VPs and above until early 2012. Not any more.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees more than the Street. You have hard working, passionate people who do not have the right resources to do great work. Loose the fear to fire the underperformers.
