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.

    I have been working at Western Union full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Flexible working environment.
    Good managers
    Technology is good though hardware updates are lacking
    Friendly co-workers

    Cons

    Incompetent executive leadership
    Highly politicised mid-level management
    Planning changes with every new CIO - and they have changed 3 in the past 6 years.
    No coherent plan - very inward looking. Lots of talk very little action.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Plan for the future and stick to it,
    Respect your employees and rewards them with money and recognition.
    Denver is not the only office - a lot of satellite offices have very competent employees. Visit those offices and talk to those folks and boost their morale.
