I have been working at Western Union full-time (more than a year)

Pros

My hours at Western Union are far more reasonable than previous places I've worked. The pay and benefits are highly competitive.

Cons

The firm does not adequately distinguish between high and low performers. Employee development is not emphasized. There is no mechanism to hold managers responsible for developing their people. Frequently individuals are brought in from outside rather than developing current employees into needed roles. A very top down, very change-resistant culture.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Place a greater emphasis on distinguishing performance. The focus on shoehorning performance outcomes into a standard distribution in practice means that vastly differing performers end up getting treated as equivalent.

    Pros

    Compensation and benefits are generally good.

    Cons

    Company constantly restructures with heavy toll to business and employees. Management doesn't seem to find the right formula to drive profitability in a highly competitive environment. Career opportunities are few especially when employees are not in Denver.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize that an engaged workforce means happy customers and increased profitability. Truly care about employees, it will pay off.

    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.
