I think this company is a good, because their pay isn't bad, and they offer good benefits. If you like working alone then this place is for you. Your hours are flexible, because you can trade hours with other employees in your job position.
Senior Director Owned Stores, USA (Former Employee) – nation wide – December 3, 2015
MoneyGram is a company with good working atmosphere, where employees are stimuled and supported to develop skills. On my area there is great flexibility to implant my own leadship style. It is the second most important/large company on the remmittances industry, Because of that sometimes focus and general alignment to the objectives is deviated. Too much people making decisons on one topic that some times impacts negatively on the bottom line of the financials.

some supervisors were not always helpful, when you addressed an issue they would not always find an answer for you.
