Current Employee - Director in Englewood, CO

I have been working at Western Union full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Pockets of really good folks, currently has solid revenue. Very nice campus in Englewood. Some really sharp technology (some not). Decent Pay

Cons

Lack of solid vision. Good slogans but disjointed action. Many changes recently so we seem to be in a perpetual "this could be the year" state. Overly dependant on some antiquated technology and practices.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The term, Senior Management Team, really really needs some more emphasis on TEAM. If everyone has thier own checkbook and plan, how can you be surprised when the account is empty and you have not made any progress. Lots of changes so hopefully "this is the year" this gets better

    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.

    I have been working at Western Union

    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!
