    I have been working at MoneyGram International full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    - Work-Life Balance - opportunity to work from home, as appropriate
    - Business Process Improvement focus - many global projects, with opportunity to work directly on change management initiatives
    - Personal Growth - opportunities for advancement, if you perform well
    - Benefits - Great improvement in total Benefits package this year (2015) - inexpensive medical premiums, with a lower deductible than last year; 4 weeks for vacation/sick/personal; 10 paid holidays; nice company 401k match - definitely stronger than 2014!
    - Communication - New employee intranet site - increased visibility into organization, more direct communication to employees

    Cons

    Multiple legacy systems for employee information. However, company is getting new global platform in 2nd quarter 2015, so that will be changing soon.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to communicate with employees, and to listen to employee feedback. It is working!

    Pros

    Great global footprint. No 2 or 3 in world size wise. Great people. Good Coffee.

    Cons

    Cutbacks, layoffs, senior management do not seem to be able to effectively manage the global organization. it is a very miserable place to be with limited benefits, pay increases, little to no bonus, no share options paid out in past 3 years. Very troubled company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize where you are out of your depth and move on.. Bring in new leadership team with the ability to turn the business around

    Pros

    Company provides 401k plans, health, dental and vision coverage. Multicultural environment.

    Cons

    Due to outsourcing, majority of the US based positions are being sent overseas. The focus on the bottom line overpowers the quality of work and employees.

    Pros

    MoneyGram is TRULY a global organization. I get the chance to work with individuals all over the world. It is a place that if you are willing to roll up your sleeves and work hard, your efforts are rewarded. The people at MoneyGram are fun and dedicated to the cause!

    Cons

    Because it's a global organization, I have had to adjust my 'waking up' schedule. Sometimes we have early morning calls, but it's worth it to get to work with my peers abroad.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to share what is going on with your leaders and ask them to make sure it funnels down.

    Former Employee - Business Analyst in Lakewood, CO (US)

    I worked at MoneyGram International full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Amazing people, good and fun environment, benefits are decent and the amount of PTO is very good.
    Also, management has taken steps to make documentation related to projects "business standards". The business documentation used by Project Managers, Business Analyst, etc, are just as good as anything you will see at more organized companies.

    Cons

    Many projects are simply attempts to copy something that Western Union is doing, just without the same project budget, the same project length (time wise) or... the same pay.
    Compared to most companies, pay rates are very low!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you really wanted to save money, you should have considered eliminating a few Senior VPs, VPs, Directors, etc.
    Perhaps getting rid of a few of those 'upper management people' would provide you with the chance of keeping many of the jobs here in Lakewood... or at least in the US!

    I have been working at MoneyGram International full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Is funny to see all these good reviews from "Poland" it caught my attention that they are perfectly written . We all know that all upper management and employees in Poland barely speak and write English.
    I wouldn't be surprised if leadership are asking overseas employees to write good reviews since they need them so bad .

    Cons

    Leadership get millions in bunuses while employees get 2-60 cents raise every year. You are better without their benefits. The employee turnover is very high.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop bleeding and squeezing the core of the company instead squeeze the big cats

    Pros

    The people are really great!

    Cons

    Leadership is not leading the company, the financial situation is not great, the benefits continue to get worse, the political environment is challenging, your contributions don't matter and are certainly not appreciated if you are not "in" with certain leaders. It's all rather unfortunate.

    good work life balance only

    Cons

    non-professional leadership. waste all the time on politics. so many internal problems, issues, and no focus on real business. all management wants is jet up the stock price then sell the co. decision is based on personal preference, not logical judgement.

    Pros

    None because all the good things about this company are gone

    Cons

    The benefits get worse every year
    The pay is very low
    You get fired by lousy VPs that dont like you eventho your work is impeccable and recognized (it's like a kindom like monarchy)
    They modify the numbers to make everybody believe is going well
    They have issues in all the products and don't do anything to fix them and don't listen to whatever you have to say
    They shipped all the jobs from colorado to Poland to "save" money but they have spent more money than saving, everything has backfired because they don't listen .
    I can go on but my advice don't work for this company they won't recognize your work they see you as trash and they don't care about what you have to say

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Like management cares what I have to say! They can send 100s of consultants to resolve issues, but everything fails because they ignore the people with valueble information
