Western Union is a company filled with wonderful people and at the time of my employment, there was very much what I would describe as an entrepreneurial environment.

Management was awesome in terms of the support, the training and the work ethics shown and displayed towards us. Each day was different depending on the work load and what needed to get done based on time frame. As an FX settlement officer you learnt that not all payments needed to have a swift code or that you could send a payment RTGS where a client or customer would receive there funds within 30mins. The culture in the work place was diverse, which made the work environment respectful, The most enjoyable part of the job is being able to help other team members work towards a common goal at the end of the day.
Pros
Bonus work points and free lunches once a month
Cons
long hours and working through lunch breaks

I was fortunate enough to be integrated into a team that was extremely close, aligned and focussed. We worked hard, we played hard, we celebrated wins, worked together through difficult times of business and through organisational changes. We looked out for each other and ensured support was given to all members of the team to add value and continued success of the business in the Indochina and Oceania region.
Western Union provided me with an invaluable opportunity to develop my skill set, offered professional and personal growth and provided me with exposure to such a diverse, multi cultural group of high performing professionals from all walks of life and instilled a great company culture & respectful values resulting in one of the most significant times of my working career. I will be eternally grateful for the mentoring, coaching and encouragement I received during my tenure and feel extremely fortunate to have been associated to such a unique and highly successful team.
Pros
Team Collaboration, Learning & Development, Business Practice Exposure, Company Values, Partnership, Inclusion
Cons
Often long hours at critical times of business, lack on man power & resources, remote location from head office
