    Pros

    The recruitment process was efficient, Moneygram was impressively quick to make decisions. Onboarding process was quick and easy.
    Culture is positive and forward looking. Of course, there are problems to be solved but the company is aware and pragmatic about solving them.

    Cons

    A little staid and old-school.

    Advice to Management

    Keep shaking things up

    I have been working at MoneyGram International full-time

    Pros

    Generally great corporate culture, clearly trying hard to be a top-quality company to work for, excellent recognition of work-life balance.

    Cons

    Select individuals get away with a surprising level of high-school-like behavior in the workplace. And less of an issue here than at other companies I've worked for, but MG also suffers from the IT administrative habits of upholding bad processes just to keep the company blood pumping without actually fixing the way things are done for the long-term.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage knowledge-sharing and cross-training more among the IT division, with particular emphasis on sharing upper management's philosophy throughout the teams they manage (that is, get everyone on the same page, but do so via knowledge & teamwork, as force and "because I said so" rules are usually counterproductive).

    Pros

    Great pay, great teams. There is a lot of change but it is mostly for the good. A lot has been invested in security and there is a clear path to maturity.

    Cons

    There is not a lot to complain about. My only problem is distance and traffic. Other than that all is well.

    Advice to Management

    You're moving in the right direction.

    Pros

    Great benefits, generous vacation time, good pay, understanding managers for great work/life balance. Company throws events during the summer which is nice. The people are generally good and easy to work with across the board, there are always going to be difficult people everywhere you go...

    Cons

    Needs to invest more in infrastructure to improve the health of the company. Politics can play a roll with certain leaders, but again you get that anywhere you go.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your people. There are a lot of good people that work at MGI but the company can be very demanding on everyone.
