Pros

*Good benefits
*Competitive Salaries
*Flexible work schedules
*Good training opportunities

Most people are friendly and willing to help. Good employee reward program.

Cons

*Company moves slowly
*New ideas are generally rejected unless they come from the top

Too many chiefs, not enough workers. Lots of directors/VPs with no direct reports.

Advice to Management

Good people are hard to find. Consider that when closing a facility and offering "relocation" versus "migration". We didn't fall for it, and neither will the others in the future "reorgs".

    Pros

    Colleagues were great to work with.
    External Customers were great to work with.
    Good Life/work balance - depending on your boss.

    Cons

    Not the right people in the right position.
    Not innovative.
    Western Union PILLARS are just said not followed.
    Lots of "Word Spinning"
    If you "TALK THE LOUDEST" you are heard the most even when wrong.

    Advice to Management

    Put the right people on the right seat in the bus.
    Performance is key not promises.
    Actions speak louder than words.
    Keep the talented and get rid of the mondane "word spinners"

    Pros

    New CEO Hikmet promises a return to productivity and efficiency after a consulted said workers were on the lazy side. Looking forward to opportunities that may come from restructuring in 2011.

    Cons

    Most of our business is overseas. Huge satellite location being formed in Lithuania. Most employees guess that that Denver campus will become a skeleton in 3 years.
