    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 worked at MoneyGram International full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible with working from home when you need to.

    Cons

    They can't seem to figure out how a budget works. Every year it's a hiring freeze, layoffs and eliminating contractor work due to over budget. They got rid of promotions. You can only advance if there's an opening which creates a culture of throwing colleagues under the bus in hopes of receiving open positions.

    I worked at MoneyGram International full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Garnichts! A mitarbeiter verlassen das Unternehmen sofort. Das Management bevorzugt B mitarbeiter. Kindergarten verantstaltungen. Mitarbeiter müssen von Hamburg oder München am selben tag nach Frankfurt reisen, wenn 9 Uhr meeting ist, d.h. losfahren teilweise um 2-3 Uhr nachts!!! Hotel wird in dem fall nicht bezahlt! Die Manager kommen von HMi ähnlichen drücker kollonen, null qualität, null qualifikation, keine ahnung von Business! Pustekuchen!

    Cons

    Eigentlich alles! Von Management bis hin zur Backoffice, eeemmm welches backoffice. Jeder arbeitet wie er will, themen werden ständing nach lust und laune priorisiert! Keine parkplätze, benefits, entwicklung, schulung, zugaben, wertschätzung, mobbing, nichts!!!! egoistisches Management! Möchte gern Manager!

    Advice to Management

    Auswechslung aller Manager! Katastrophale fehl entscheidungen!

    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).

    Listen to your employees. Take them seriously when they propose drastic changes. Perhaps such changes will save the company money in the long run.
