Pros

Enjoy the people I work with.

Cons

Pay is below market value. Benefits that used to be above market (which made up for the pay) are now at market are below.
Moving more and more of the company out of the US to "cheaper" locations.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Start treating your employees like they are the valuable commodity you say they are.

    Pros

    It's a global company with a trusted, 160 year old brand which commands a lot of attention. There are terrific people who work very hard everyday and it is a fabulous way to work with people of every nation, race and creed. There is a sense of teamwork.

    Cons

    IT infrastructure is like a dinosaur. Focus is only on the core business which has been in decline, so company is in denial and won't take risks to escape into a new horizon. It takes forever to launch new products.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop bowing to the monitor or we will never bounce back. Embrace new products with serious funding. Scrap the IT and start over--it is the weakest link!

    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.
