    I have been working at Western Union

    Pros

    *Good benefits
    *Competitive Salaries
    *Flexible work schedules
    *Good training opportunities

    Most people are friendly and willing to help. Good employee reward program.

    Cons

    *Company moves slowly
    *New ideas are generally rejected unless they come from the top

    Too many chiefs, not enough workers. Lots of directors/VPs with no direct reports.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good people are hard to find. Consider that when closing a facility and offering "relocation" versus "migration". We didn't fall for it, and neither will the others in the future "reorgs".

    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"
