I have been working at Western Union full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Enjoy the people I work with.

Cons

Pay is below market value. Benefits that used to be above market (which made up for the pay) are now at market are below.
Moving more and more of the company out of the US to "cheaper" locations.

Advice to Management

Start treating your employees like they are the valuable commodity you say they are.

    I have been working at Western Union full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Smart, friendly people passionate about the company's purpose
    Career growth opportunities
    The industry is challenging and is continuing to evolve
    Very collaborative environment

    Cons

    Sometimes the collaborative environment (a true strength) elongates the decision-making process
    It is important to be in the corporate headquarters to advance your career to the fullest (not atypical of other big companies though)

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing -- it will pay off if you stay the course.
