I have been working at Western Union full-time (More than a year)

Pros

My hours at Western Union are far more reasonable than previous places I've worked. The pay and benefits are highly competitive.

Cons

The firm does not adequately distinguish between high and low performers. Employee development is not emphasized. There is no mechanism to hold managers responsible for developing their people. Frequently individuals are brought in from outside rather than developing current employees into needed roles. A very top down, very change-resistant culture.

Advice to Management

Place a greater emphasis on distinguishing performance. The focus on shoehorning performance outcomes into a standard distribution in practice means that vastly differing performers end up getting treated as equivalent.
