I have been working at Western Union full-time (more than 10 years)

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 ManagementAdvice

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.

    Losing out opportunities to competitors

    I worked at Western Union full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible hours, nice office, free snacks and drinks

    Cons

    Conservative corporate culture and low-tech nature causes the company to lose its competitive advantages and market shares. High turn-over rates – talented employees are de-motivated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Modernize the company's technologies bottom-up. Outsourcing does not always save you money in the long run.
