People, don't be naive

Western Union is not giving you a package out of the goodness of its heart or any kind of loyalty towards its long-term employees. The money is not being given to you to help you out in a time of need - it's given to you so you would sign away your... —  read more

Western Union did this right

I would like the say that the company has been more than generous with the layoff notice and severance package. No other company would notify with at least a 3 month advance plus a severance. There are no jobs for life anymore and we have to... —  read more

WU a crashing plane

No future at Western Union

I handed in my resignation yesterday. It has become obvious lately that there is no future here - the company will keep laying off people each month until there is nobody here left to lay off. Sad but true. I will miss the people I work with, but... —  read more

Western Union is wasting money at every turn

Makes no sense to sell land we own, with 2 buildings recently remodeled, to ONE building we LEASE in the DTC. Dumb move, even if they are selling to housing developers. Then again, money is wasted everywhere we turn. Sponsoring two professional... —  read more

Senior leaders at Western Union are clueless

Being an ex-WU employee, I can say some of the WU way ideas were well intentioned. Overall, nothing changed since the start of the program. WU spent millions of dollars on consulting firms instead of listening to their employees who told them the... —  read more

We need a viable strategy at Western Union

WU has no cohesive or coherent strategy - especially with the IT systems and groups. The "WU Way" initiative is just fluffy BS we overpaid a consulting company for to say "lets make things better!" without any real substance. So instead of being more... —  read more

Montvalle, Englewood

Western Union has a reputation for lots of different layoff phases that sometimes can be really big. Typically, folks do get a solid severance package that somewhat softens the blow and makes employees somewhat more willing to ride out the... —  read more

It's all about numbers at WU

There is no security at WU, seriously, it's all about the most recent financial results. The execs like their bonuses but always are short sighted, it's all about the most recent quarter, they do not look into future. Western Union does lay off a lot... —  read more

WU is cutting already and will continue to cut in 2014. I am not sure if 2015 and beyond will be any better but now that alternative payment systems are getting more traction I'd expect WU to take yet another cut. On the other hand many people are... —  read more
