    I worked at First Data full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    First Data offers some of the best benefits, competitive salaries, and growth opportunities.

    Cons

    Although there are growth opportunities most of it is not based upon tenure or skill it is mostly based on personal bias and favoritism. Upper management no longer seems to value or appreciate employees they are more focused on numbers and metrics to give the appearance that things are running smoothly for new investors and ownership that are taking over the company. Also they have a track record for covering up a lot of dirt for higher-ups as well as targeting employees who speak up against violations and mistreatment within the workplace. This is a great job to work for if you do not go against the grain or speak out against management however if you do you will be made to feel extremely uncomfortable and you find it hard to find any growth opportunities.

    I worked at First Data full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    work life balance, work from home options, pay

    Cons

    I came here with high hopes because I was told false/lies during my interview about my role and then spent two years working on completely different tasks and mostly found myself bored because of no team interactions - I was mostly working on independent tasks and really struggled emotionally while on this job as I really feel like I wasted two years of my life learning nothing. From pay/benefits - I didn't negotiate my salary initially and that was a mistake because then you get 2% salary increases and constantly being told that the company is not doing good or budget issues while the head of your department says "this was the best time so everyone should have received good amount of pay increase and bonus, the merger had no affect on that".
