I worked at Western Union

Pros

Colleagues were great to work with.
External Customers were great to work with.
Good Life/work balance - depending on your boss.

Cons

Not the right people in the right position.
Not innovative.
Western Union PILLARS are just said not followed.
Lots of "Word Spinning"
If you "TALK THE LOUDEST" you are heard the most even when wrong.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Put the right people on the right seat in the bus.
Performance is key not promises.
Actions speak louder than words.
Keep the talented and get rid of the mondane "word spinners"

    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.
