I worked at Western Union full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Very supportive and motivating managers who are able to create a wonderful working environment. A lot of possibilities to develop professionaly and take part in various projects which may interest you.

Cons

Probably as in all big multinational companies, it takes ages to fix a process which does not work properly and one cannot do a lot about it, just wait...

Advice to Management

Spread company's philosophy and key values in all possible ways!

    "Deployed the hire and fire style. Glamourous brand, but wrong leaders in place."

    I worked at Western Union full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Talented people whom you can learn from, but short lived due to bureachy.

    Cons

    Tough environment.Staying long in the company is a miracle unless you are poltically inclined. Wearing mask everyday is a tiring fact.

    Advice to Management

    What comes around turns around.

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

    Pros

    - The company is the leader in its area, so less competitive pressure. Good for folks who are not looking for challenges or rapid changes.
    - Company products and technology do not evolve much in spite if what happens in the digital world. That makes your work manageable.
    - Good benefits and work life balance. I can see many people working here for many years are very comfortable here.
    - being small and flat organization, you have very limited opportunity and visibility if you are in smaller office locations.

    Cons

    - Pace of change to catch up with new developments. Slow to adjust itself to make it relevant to the new consumers and technology. It's interesting to see how the company can maintain its position vs the likes of paypal and online low cost p2p provider out there.
    - People too comfortable in their job means strong status quo. People looking to constantly challenge themselves or stimulate their brains may not enjoy working here.
    - CEO really lacks focus. Reorgs are daily routines. Even at top management level.

    Advice to Management

    Stop reorgs. Make the best use of your existing people, like it it not.
