    Pros

    Good PTO. Decent benefits. Nice location by West End shops.

    Cons

    No room for advancement in MN unless IT. Upper management focus on metrics and not people and staff. Micro managed.

    Advice to Management

    It's no all about numbers and metrics against people unless it's consistent across all departments and clearly is not. Team members are not appreciated, it's doesn't seem like it's ever good enough. Favoritism is present.

    "Project Coordinator/Jr. Project Manager"

    Pros

    I liked the people I was working with at the time and enjoyed the relaxed dress code.....that is about it.

    Cons

    Management was awful! Constant changes. I didn't ever receive any formal training on the SDLC (software development life cycle) that I was operating in. There was very little mentorship and opportunity for growth. Although I was in a contract for hire position, I never felt that my manager treated me as a full time employee and had no intention of bringing me full time. He told me on multiple occasions, "If I have to do more work on your behalf, you will come to find that isn't a good thing." None of the Project Managers enjoyed any of their managers from what I knew. It also made a lot of people uneasy that there were constant layoffs. Very little transition documentation as well, which made it difficult to pick on projects mid life cycle.

    There were ares of the company that didn't have the issues that the PMO had, but for the most part if you are going into the PMO as a Project Coordinator/Project Manager be ready to be frustrated at things you take heat for that are out of your control.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time with/improving your Project Managers and not trying to fix a process that isn't broken.

    I worked at MoneyGram International full-time

    Pros

    Moving the headquarters to Dallas created jobs.

    Cons

    The company has too much turnover with upper managment; which always changes the culture of the company.

    Advice to Management

    The company needs to be more stable and promote employees.

    Pros

    Still some great people - though getting to be fewer and fewer

    Cons

    Company is run by a bunch of money grubbing bullies with no actual respect for or interest in the company or its employees.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house. Hire people who actually have a vision for the line of business and can muster at least a modicum of respect for the employees.

    I have been working at MoneyGram International full-time

    Pros

    Compensation structure is aimed at taking this out of the picture for job satisfaction.

    Cons

    All though compensation is good, the culture is a dismal failure. The new CEO has failed to drive a culture of unity within the communicated MoneyGram United strategy. The organization prefers to keep destructive and inexperienced leaders that have a longer tenure rather than focusing on the things that can make the organization better. MoneyGram loves to talk about change, but will continue to revert back to habits which have put it in the position its in...which is losing in the marketplace.

    Advice to Management

    If you can't separate your personal friends from your professional responsibilities, then you should reconsider your professional career path. You are doing a disservice to the company.
