    Hire competent and qualified individuals, not just friends you hang out with or gym buddies. Allow people to challenge the process versus YES men/women. If anyone challenges the leadership, you have a target on your back and your next on the layoff horizon...

    I have been working at Western Union full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Western Union is a truly global organization. On a day to day basis, I interact with other individuals across the globe, from Lithuania to Costa Rica to Singapore.

    People who work here really believe in the vision to move money for better and really want to make this place a better place to work.

    In the groups I have worked with and worked in, there is great work life balance. Most leaders understand that you work to live, not necessarily live to work. However, don't get me wrong, people work really hard here and the culture aligns to this closely.

    Cons

    There is a lot of change here. To be successful and happy, you have to have to be able to go with the flow and embrace change.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing and utilize those around you and the tools you are offered to understand what employees at all levels are thinking and experiencing.

    I have been working at Western Union (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The supervisors take so much PTO that you can do the work of higher management without getting paid at higher salary. It will look good on resume.

    Cons

    This company calls itself global but all they are doing is laying off LAN and IT Dept so they can globally outsource jobs. An U.S. company that rather provide jobs overseas.

    Advice to Management

    Inform supervisors that when bonuses are denied to low level workers it would be best not to complain about their thousand dollar shoes.

    I have been working at Western Union full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Come and go as you please, global co-workers, sometimes interesting projects, generous PTO policy.

    Cons

    Where to start? Management is a revolving door. If your in management, you will eventually get laid off. The company can't figure it's way forward. Layoff, layoffs, and more layoffs...every single year. Offshore, outsource, and general continual cost reductions is the norm. Company wants to be the next FinTech leader but its management and culture is stuck in large company mode.

    Advice to Management

    You and I both know your outsourcing and offshoring approach is destine to fail, in fact it already has. Your putting the company future in low paying resources outside the U.S. Your internal culture is toxic and project disasters are the norm.
