Pros

Global experience that allows you to gain it if you know how to manipulate the system. Helping people all over the world eat every day.

Advice to Management

Change today or you will loose tomorrow. When will you wake up and realize you are bleeding good people thAt leave on a daily basis because of you.

    Pros

    Great pay, work/life balance, benefits.

    Cons

    Only concerned with the bottom-line, upper management has no clue about what employees are going through. Employees dedicated years with the company and what do they get in return.....LAID OFF and put in the unemployment line while their jobs are given to another country.

    Advice to Management

    Really get to know your employees, appreciate them for all their years of knowledge. Actually treat them with respect and dignity, don't just use that as the latest catch phrase.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Great benefits (401k no vesting period, tuition reimbursement, good health package), nice facility (cafeteria, gym), competitive pay.
     New leadership is enthusiastic and seems to care about employees. They started bonuses for US employee, ramped up company events, and increased employee training & development seminars.

    Cons

    Isolated culture doesnt support knowledge sharing and communication between groups & hinders professional development. I almost feel as if I have less experience than when I came here. New exec mgmt seems to be trying to change this, but old First Data lower mgmt are resisting.
    Terrible systems mgmt: crashes, slow downs, functions break and are never fixed, one fix breaks two more. Long time managers and directors are very political and only concerned with making themselves look good with the least amountvof work. Some managers that I dont report to seem really good, but they are complicit.. Others have to hire from outside because anyone in the company doesnt want them. Current employees are either the favorites, are new, or are looking for another job ( @ WU or outside).

    Advice to Management

    Open the culture to encourage knowledge sharing and communication. That will be key to your productivity initiatives.
    Get rid of old culure management that plays politics instead of managing employees. Be aware of managers who always blame employees and find excuses.
    Invest more in IT and systems management.
