Pros

New CEO Hikmet promises a return to productivity and efficiency after a consulted said workers were on the lazy side. Looking forward to opportunities that may come from restructuring in 2011.

Cons

Most of our business is overseas. Huge satellite location being formed in Lithuania. Most employees guess that that Denver campus will become a skeleton in 3 years.

    Pros

    Working at Western Union was one of the best experiences I ever had. The corporate culture is very tight and supportive.

    Cons

    Management in Sunrise office is top notch. Denver management is very territorial and not to par with their Latin American division counterparts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Letting go of top quality employees isn't going to position you for the future. Be careful with your strategy on this respect. Your company has a lot of potential, don't shoot yourselves in the foot. What happened to "Surfing the waves of change"? Right now, you're drowning in them.

    Pros

    Co-workers, work is not overly difficult, Western Union looks good on a resume.

    Cons

    No adequate HR support at department level; no opportunities for advancement or career pathing; bad employees were left to continue to harrass others and not addressed or removed from situation; lack of qualified managers in place. If you could breath and had friends in high places, you were promoted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get with the program and take care of your good employees. Otherwise, you will continue to spend money replacing them.
