No opinion of CEO

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 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.

    I have been working at Western Union full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Smart, friendly people passionate about the company's purpose Career growth opportunities The industry is challenging and is continuing to evolve Very collaborative environment

    Cons

    Sometimes the collaborative environment (a true strength) elongates the decision-making process It is important to be in the corporate headquarters to advance your career to the fullest (not atypical of other big companies though)

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing -- it will pay off if you stay the course.
