    Pros

    It's a global company with a trusted, 160 year old brand which commands a lot of attention. There are terrific people who work very hard everyday and it is a fabulous way to work with people of every nation, race and creed. There is a sense of teamwork.

    Cons

    IT infrastructure is like a dinosaur. Focus is only on the core business which has been in decline, so company is in denial and won't take risks to escape into a new horizon. It takes forever to launch new products.

    Advice to Management

    Stop bowing to the monitor or we will never bounce back. Embrace new products with serious funding. Scrap the IT and start over--it is the weakest link!


  2. "Diverse place to work"

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

    Pros

    Being a massive global company, you work with people from all over the world and learn a lot about different cultures and people. There are great opportunities to travel and salaries are generally very reasonable. The product offering is brilliant and helps people all over the world transfer money quickly and easily.

    Cons

    At times you can feel like your contribution isn't making a difference as there are so many moving parts to such a big company, but if you take responsibility for your role and keep working hard you can make it far.
