    I have been working at MoneyGram International full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    With 2,000+ employees around the globe, each person has the ability to influence company direction in their everyday work (like a start-up). Great place to learn a wide variety of skills on the job. If you’re comfortable with change, you will thrive and have opportunities to grow. Solid U.S. benefits: 12 week 100% paid maternity leave, 4 weeks of PTO to start, and 11 paid holidays.

    Cons

    Fast paced, sometimes the global nature of the work can provide challenges to work through.

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

    Pros

    smart casual attire, drinks fridge, central location, some friendly members of staff

    Cons

    Unbelievable levels of mismanagement, people get thrown under the bus a lot. Changing goal posts, severe lack of support and gaslighting by management. Very catty culture overall, and teams unwilling to assist others and are too scared to provide too much information for fear of being scapegoated further down the line. Nobody wants to help anybody, and even if they did; everyone is too stressed and overworked to be able to. Observed very dubious redundancy decisions - it is clear sucking up to management will get you further than skills will! Since leaving other members of staff who also decided to leave (globally) have reached out to offer support as everyone seems to be experiencing the same... Most negative atmosphere.
