I have been working at Western Union

Pros

teamwork, leader in industry, fairness and employees treated respectfully and ethically, great benefits, innovative, great branding strategy, top performer, work life balance, amenities

Cons

fast paced, sometimes the communication between upper management and the "doers" is lacking, not always clear career development and advancement paths

Advice to ManagementAdvice

get out and about and visit with employees more, get to know the people that work for you and those that are on the "front lines"

    Management Does not value learning or education

    Current Employee - Compliance Manager in Denver, CO
    Current Employee - Compliance Manager in Denver, CO

    I have been working at Western Union

    Pros

    Management is flexible with time off requests. The work is not intimidating or overly difficult. Western Union is a recognized Money Services business and looks good on a resume. Tuition reimbursement benefits are great.

    Cons

    Benefits are just fair compared to other financial services institutions in Denver as they have chosen the least expensive Aetna plans available (Dental coverage is poor). Management in the compliance group does not value education or learning. They will not support most individuals in obtaining an ACAMS license or any leadership training. We do not have adequate HR Generalist support and therefore no one to oversee the operation. Compliance has a dark mark at Western Union and this might not be indicative of every other department. No bonuses, except for Directors and above. No one ever gets fired; bad apples never reprimanded.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Western Union claims to be concerned about employees but we are yet to see that is the case. We give millions of dollars to foreign countries, our major customers. However, very little is given back to employees.

    Good place to stay but no loyalty for employees. Stock price dictates everything

    Former Employee - Regional Director in Denver, CO

    I worked at Western Union

    Pros

    Great benefits, International enviornment, Good place to learn. Great place to stay if you are part of the good ol boy network

    Cons

    No set hiring standards, promotions are set for close friends of hiring managers, unethnical practices. Stock price will decide every major decision on a daily basis like employee retention which leads to less loyalty among employees. Executive team is from non financial service background ( some one from radio shack) who has no understanding of the ground realities and basic consumer profiles.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get to know your consumers. Christina is great as a macro manager but other EVP's and SVP's need to improve communication and product/market knowledge.
