Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Englewood, CO
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Englewood, CO

I worked at Western Union full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Good salary and benefits. Flexible work schedule with opportunites to work from home. Very good mid-level management. Nice office and cafeteria on site.

Cons

Always reorganizing, outsourcing and sending jobs off shore. Upper management concentrates on customer satisfaction and has forgotten about employee satisfaction. Moral is very bad. There is a strong fear that the goal is to phase out Denver office and move to LA and NY and leave a small operations office in Denver.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to employees and try to bring back some stability. Moral is so bad everyone is in constant fear of losing their jobs. Your performance reviews don't matter. Nobody is safe.

    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

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

    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.
