    Reasonable salary at higher levels. Interesting work. Opportunities to be creative and come up with new ideas. Lots of interaction with colleagues around the world. Good colleagues to work with.

    Cons

    Senior management inexperienced about the industry. Lots of firings. Can be fired in a heartbeat, irrespective of performance, particularly if you get a new boss. Lots of politics. Very US centric.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognise, reward and retain the people who deliver results.

    I worked at MoneyGram International full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Office culture is unique. People for the most part are trying to do what is right for the company. Benefits are ok.

    Cons

    Lack of communication and clear direction from the leadership team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There needs to be more clear direction from leadership. Seems to have a lack of ownership on projects. Lack of agreement among leadership on what the priorities are for the business.
