Pros

Great people, pays well, opportunity exists for lateral movement. If you like Compliance this has great job security

Cons

Reorgs 1x a year EVERY year. Sticking to a strategy has been a challenge. Lack of focus stretches resources and leads to professional frustration.

Advice to Management

Congratulations on a positive work environment. Continue to search for that one idea that can take WU to the next level or pricing will continue to consume margin.
