Enjoyed working at MoneyGram
Compliance Field Trainer (Former Employee) –  St. Louis Park, MNJuly 26, 2017
I spent the last two years traveling to ma and pa shops providing Compliance Training to the customers for money transfers.
The company was good to me. Unfortunately they moved the HQ's to Dallas and the Compliance department was let go otherwise I would have never left the company.
I had great people I worked with and really enjoyed the traveling.

Challenging Environment w/ Opportunities to Lead
Senior Director, Information Technology (Former Employee) –  Minneapolis, MNJuly 17, 2017
The culture and environment has become particularly challenging as the companies objectives and priorities have shifted. Many great people at MGI, most looking to do the right things, but often are held back by the lack of a consistent and cohesive strategy. Plenty of opportunities for those looking to lead others and provide direction.
Pros
Good location, decent pay and benefits
Cons
Culture and Morale

Look before you leap!
Human Resource Manager (Former Employee) –  MinnesotaJuly 3, 2017
This company got caught up in the Sub prime market scandal of 2008 and C level were given big parachutes as they were let go.
New leadreship brought in relocated headquarters to another state - too many people lost their jobs - left before i was shown the door.

Superficial
HR (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXJune 14, 2017
Don't be fooled by their generic job descriptions and what they apparently offer unless you can trust the direct leader and team you'd be working for/with. There are definitely some bad people there who will lie, try to set you up to fail, use you and toss you out.

They gave an additional persons responsibilities unrelated to my work, changed my job completely, had handful of bosses in a short time, didn't recognize people for real accomplishments and superficial.

While you try breaking down the silos between the groups, the so-called HR leaders promote gossip, sexism and treating people based on if they are good looking or cool and a racial minority.

Their industry is decline and they will keep cutting people. Not a recommendation to work there....

Wire-transfer inbound call center
Consumer Support Specialist (Former Employee) –  Lakewood, COMarch 24, 2017
Receiving inbound calls from senders. receivers, and 3rd party vendors regarding money transfer and money orders. I was promoted to a department that specialized in compliance with federal, state, and company policies regarding money-handling. I worked with some great people and had some really nice managers. It was open 24/7 so there were employees that worked overnight.
Pros
It was stable, reliable, and room for advancement.
Cons
Call center was closed due to outsourcing and calls now go overseas.

uncertain times combined with lack of/ poor communication
IT (Current Employee) –  United StatesMarch 18, 2017
The organization continues to bite off more than it can chew, trying to support aging, ineffective, non-revenue producing products while at the same time trying to be "the cool kid" on the block. Lots of opportunity for improvement.
Pros
fair and competitive compensation
Cons
senior management disconnected with reality

I really enjoyed working at MoneyGram until they let me and 100 other people go as part of a reduction in force. They are an international company and were recently acquired.
