I worked at Western Union full-time

Pros

The people who work for Western Union are bright, dedicated and truly care about the company. They are willing to share information and work as a team to better the company.

Western Union provided great work/life balance and flexibility and cares about its employees.

Cons

Constant change where the company cannot keep up with itself. Senior management changes major initiatives each year and employee confidence diminishes. It seems investments are not made where they are needed for the company to grow.

    I worked at Western Union

    Pros

    The people can be great to work with - very friendly environment. They do take care of their employees.

    Cons

    Very siloed environment. Difficult to do business with any other business unit other than your own. Unfortunately, the current atmosphere is trying cut their way to growth - no budgets for anything outside of a few areas, and frequent layoffs

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Plan for more than just the next quarter. You can't keep cutting all expenses and expect that to work as a long term strategy.

    Be more transparent in your compliance goals and how you intend to reach them. Try to be proactive in compliance rather than reactive. Improve the relationship between compliance and the business.
