    I have been working at Western Union

    Pros

    Excellent benefits and time off
    Pay is decent

    Cons

    The way people talk to each other and treat each other here is abysmal, not to mention the lack of internal communication when someone is unhappy. Make sure you have an email thread for every conversation of it never happened. I'm new and I've been told to go fix an application that I didn't know how it was set up, where it was, what system is was on and when I asked basic questions I was ridiculed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat people like adults, get rid of the dead weight,

    Great work life balance, often non meritocratic work culture

    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.
