    I have been working at First Data full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great people, interesting work, decent pay, benefits available, express a desire to keep staff happy

    Cons

    My division is smaller and a bit separate from the main business of the company and is sometimes overlooked in company wide announcements and discussions.

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget that the decisions you make at a corporate level are life impacting to your employees.

    I worked at First Data full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great people to work with, some good products to sell and service.

    Cons

    In the sales world, they keep hiring upper management that has not a clue how to provide sellable products and how to price them.

    Advice to Management

    Management should bring in Relationship managers when trying to determine how to market products. Also, price products better for your smaller clients They need to purchase a core to get the maximum results for both sales and servicing clients. Provide better support for salespeople.

    Things move s l o w l y. Trying to get things done can take months, when in other places it would take a week, tops. Compensation is a bit eh. Bonuses and raises are paltry, even if you're a top performer. Slow to accept new technology.
