    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...

    great workplace environment & colleagues, good work/lifebalance, multicultural environment, great workers in the company

    Cons

    low salary for the responabilities you may have in your r ole - low benefits -, more and more tasks without salary re-calulation. Talent Aquisition & HR not offering competitive salaries & offers.

    Advice to Management

    I would compareother company's salary e re-elaborate them. I would also be more competitive on the job offers - compared to many other companies.

      Pros

      Lots of really good and friendly people Big, international organization Unusual ethnic flavour If you want to do something there is usually a way

      Cons

      In case of personnel problems, managers don't know how to handle it, there is no competence. HR is only doing administration for themselves and legally needed. Lack of mentorship, senior managers are only busy keeping their jobs not growing or supporting own people. Lots of play and cheat.

      Advice to Management

      Grow your management to the international corporate standard. Online trainings are not answer to everything. Looking for buyer or waiting for merger is not one either.
