    I have been working at First Data full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Opportunities. Great people to work with. The collective intellectual assets available is huge. Easy to get promoted and get noticed. The transformation of the company is real. Since the new CEO, the company is transforming from traditional processing company to leading technology company.

    Cons

    Limited benefits when it comes to 401. A lot of regulatory compliance certifications. Limited growth opportunities when you are not close to the headquarters.

    Pros

    Great people to work with

    Cons

    They don't care about the employees, only how they can save more money or fire more people to cut costs. Horrible leadership at the very top. Some managers are good, some are bad, but that doesn't seem to matter. Bonuses and raises are scarce unless you are buddy buddy with the one in charge of giving them out.

    I worked at First Data full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great people on the micro scale. I truly enjoyed the people I directly worked with. Not much more to notate beyond that.

    Cons

    The C Level execs are doing nothing but milking the company for every dime they can squeeze out. The benefits are pathetic- no 401k match and joke of an equity plan. There is a mass exodus happening. This is not a good opportunity for any prospective job seekers.
