I worked at First Data as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

-Stability
-You know exactly what you're doing day to day
-Comfortable location and amenities

Cons

-Corporate gives managers little support, so they're too stressed and busy to make time for you... be prepared to answer your own questions, or wait weeks for follow-ups or needed materials

Advice to Management

-Treat your managers better. They're not robots. They're overworked to the extreme and it takes a toll on the entire office.

    I have been working at First Data full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Salary is on par with the industry

    Cons

    The company is continuously reorganizing at all levels. Once structures are in place and teams nearly learn their new focus and responsibilities, upper management is replaced and they start all over again--often moving back to where they started.

    Advice to Management

    First Data need to focus on innovation and stop killing the company with endless politics. Top talent is leaking from the company.
