I worked at Western Union full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Their new digital venture may bear fruit. Good cash flow. Nice, driven people at the middle management level.

Cons

People often not empowered to do what needs to be done. Ultimately WU needs to decide whether to move into the 21st Century or not. The management seems like a parody of Fortune 500 companies at times.

Advice to Management

Decide that you're really going to care about your customers. Weed out the products that are predatory. Build back the love for the brand that the Telegram WU had. There is a huge opportunity for building these feelings back, but your products are at odds with the public's trust.

    I worked at Western Union full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Was a great job and place to work at one time, before it all went overseas and everyone lost their jobs. Worked with the best people, and many gave a large part of our lives to help the company grow and do well.

    Cons

    Moved overseas, putting many people out of work, while the company was doing fine, all in the name of greed.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing left to say that would matter at this point.

    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.
