Good culture, great people, prone to large swings in strategy
Director of Go to Market Readiness (Former Employee), Englewood, COMarch 6, 2014
I very much enjoyed the time I spent at Western Union. The people are very open, welcoming and have embraced a shift to focus on the customer. Unfortunately a change in strategy eliminated my group to focus on more immediate priorities.

Toxic place but good pay
Director (Current Employee), Sab Francisco, CAFebruary 21, 2014
Pros: snacks, some of the nicest people
Cons: some of the most untrustworthy people i ever met, very unprofessional
They are intentionally siloed and there is a lack of transparency between the business and engineering. Lots of finger pointing. Not a good place to work overall, yet, I met some really nice people there.
Unprofessional. Lots of lies and covered truths. People don't show up to meetings or show up 20 minutes late consistently. No follow through or accountability.

Good Company to work
Sr. Manager - Loyalty Marketing & Product Delivery (Former Employee), Englewood, COFebruary 12, 2014
WU has a good work environment, HR is great always creating best conditions for employees. The Company is still struggling with many challenges and tough competitors, it did not find the right strategy to success. I think high management still don't understand quite well the market needs and company capabilities.

This job was entitled to handling customers through the phone.
I would go on activate my system, log into my account and get ready to accept customer calls to help them with their inquiries.
We had supervisors who worked hard to help us do our best in order to help the customers but management was lacking in dealing with different issues concerning – more... some IT technical problems and other issues.
The hardest part of this job was when we had angry customers and the working hours, i used to work from 11 pm to 8 am so that was tough. However i can't deny the good satisfying i got from help the customers solving their issues. – less
