    I worked at First Data full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Over my 11 years there, I worked with so many wonderful people across the company. Most everyone was eager to help and provide info you needed - definitely a strong sense of team work! I can't say enough about the people, especially in the Denver office.

    Cons

    Direction of the new CEO and his treatment of employees ruined it. Was quite verbal that employees were not valuable (I hope that message has changed over the past couple of years).
