    Pros

    Great opportunity for self-starter. Those who are able to navigate through ambiguous situations and possess a drive to seek answers and solutions will be successful at MoneyGram. Industry regulations are constantly changing and it is a great place for those who want to improve processes and make a difference. The company is seeking to improve their benefits in order to attract talent. I feel that MoneyGram does encourage work-life balance. The environment is friendly and makes you want to come to work.

    Cons

    The company is adjusting to a lot of changes due to relocation strategy and regulatory requirements. Benefits are currently not up to par with larger firms, but they are improving.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work in hiring people who are the right fit. MoneyGram promotes a positive work environment driven by qualified, pro-active, creative, diverse, and compassionate individuals.

    Pros

    Direct peer group was great. Everyone shared the same vision to move forward and grow.

    Cons

    Corporate office didn't act like they wanted to grow. No risk taking and very reactionary-focused rather than leading.

    Advice to Management

    Try to break ground on something and follow through.

    Pros

    Flexible Schedule, Life and work balance. Multicultural enviroment

    Cons

    Lack of career development. The majority of management positions are held by men. Bureaucratic company.

    Advice to Management

    Better implementation of strategies. Great ideas for mentoring and career development but they are not implemented well across the company specially outside the HQ (Dallas). Need more mentors and not managers across the organization.

    Pros

    Salary was on higher end. Generous benefit packages. I had good team that I worked led by a good manager. Technology and technical knowledge were on the advanced level.

    Cons

    The organization was broken down into functional silos and managed well within the specific silo, but communications, collaboration, common vision, and teamwork across the various silos were usually weak if even existent. Executive management tends to make quick reaction to information as presented to them. The information presented does not always have the full perspective on the topic and decisions are made without full understanding of the potential impact or costs.
    High personnel turnover. In 3 years I have had the each of the 3 levels of management above me change at least 3 times.

  11. Horrible management

    Pros

    Coffee tea coco salary location path fountains close to eating and shopping doctors restaurants

    Cons

    Unfair hiring practice, unjust promotional practices, excessive hours, poor work conditions,NO WORK LIFE BALANCE AT ALL. Favoritism, LARGE MANAGEMENT TURNOVER. NON CAREER DEVELOPMENT. NUMBERS DRIVEN causing shortcuts on regulatory requirements. NO concern for employees. BULLYING from supervisors, They share the premious your salary you work as long and as much as WE tell you too you don't have a choice. MAKING YOU FEEL DAILY YOU CAN BE FIRED AT ANYTIME.

    Advice to Management

    START CARING ABOUT THE PEOPLE WHO MAKES YOUR ORGANIZATION RUN. IF YOU ARE HAVING A VERY VERY VERY HIGH TURNOVER RATE GET INVOLVE TO FIND OUT WHY THAT IS.
