Great work life balance, often non meritocratic work culture

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 Management

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

    Typical back stabbing get ahead type of atmosphere of a finance company

    Cons

    you can get ahead if you are willing to put in the schmoozing work.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out which direction the company is going in but try to remain current

    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.
