What's next?

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

Stock price simply lining the pockets of CEO and his best friends. No change in leadership but all levels below impacted. Complete lies that will be revealed in 2020. Company is a joke it used to be great many moons ago. Well done Mr CEO for doing... —  read more

All announcements going out this week but where has been affected so far? We hear Frankfurt office is closing, small number in London and Dublin (?).. which roles or teams? Tough week for many.

What about this week?

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

Any news about today?

Have there been any more layoffs today anywhere at Western Union, not just in San Francisco? So far, there is nothing happening at my location, but people do seem very tense. I'm wondering if I missed something and we might be getting some... —  read more 

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 

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%....

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

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

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

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

WU 2015 Layoffs

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
