    I worked at Worldpay full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The view of a female employee in 2019.
    Entry level staff are really nice but treated like doormats.
    Once you prove your worth and brown nose the right people you can enjoy flexible working. Until then buckle up for a mediocre ride that more often than not breaks down.

    Cons

    People in positions they really aren't qualified for, the inner circle is a nasty place, if you are a manager step out of this and get to know some of the introverts, you will be surprised what skills you have at your disposal.

    Internal promotions that arent advertised/given to friends, strange to see this in a such a huge company, I'm a recipient of such fortuitous luck so I know it happens.

    Department get togethers where you are thrown into a room with a load of alcohol, what if I don't drink?

    Advice to Management

    Stop with the scaremongering and negative attitude towards staff, if you manage a department then MANAGE it, don't back down when a scary manager from another department says "no"

    Train your staff, let them learn a new skill.

    Invest in your staff.

    Know the processes you are preaching.

    If you are a Team Leader then my advice to you would be to manage your staff, don't let them walk all over you, perhaps you're in the wrong job, think about it...

    Pros

    Well remunerated
    Great work life balance
    Interesting industry
    Growing company

    Cons

    Following the Worldpay / Vantiv merger in 2018 the leadership has lacked direction and doesn't seem to have an understanding of some key initiatives / mandates and how they will impact the business; particularly those impacting the EU or RoW as the Exec are solely from the US business.

    A transformation in the way Worldpay delivers projects (to SAFe) was poorly managed, employees received a single training session and were then expected to take on a whole new delivery methodology without any support or coaching. A number of people roles changed (including mine) with no definition or input from HR.

    Very little training offered.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure there is full understanding of all aspects of the business following a merger and multiple re-orgs.
