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 Management

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.

    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 Management

    Nothing left to say that would matter at this point.

    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 Management

    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!
