There were layoffs in Europe and Costa Rica this week (at least from what we know,) any ideas what might be next? Will it happen next week?

What a farce this change is

Is Layoff done?

Is Layoff has been completed and people who didn't receive any notice can be considered safe?

What about this week?

Should we worry about more layoffs this week? Will the torture continue or can we finally relax?

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 

"Elevate Denver HQ" my ass

It was a bloodbath today in Denver. And layoffs will continue for the next couple of days. This is NOT a 10% layoff. More like 30%....

WU a crashing plane

WU is a crashing airplane and upper management is trying to fix it with expensive silly tools to "enhance the customer experience" WU lacks innovation and experience. WU does an amazing job getting its employees to drink the "Kool-aid" of great... —  read more 

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
