    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.
