"First Data is doing really interesting things with mobile payments. The people I work with are dedicated, interesting and so great to work with. My project never sits still. I am constantly working on new and interesting features. My direct reports and my manager all support me. This is one of my favorite jobs."
"Great place to be. Work is interesting and lots of opportunity to lead and form your own path"
"4 years full time employee"
"Average company to work for in sales terms. Lots of leeways, but the internal organization is messy. In addition, management is heavily old school and has not adapted to the internet era."
"While I have only worked for FD for less than a year, I have seen a great deal of reorganization to enable us to be more successful. Management has a process in place to continue to grow the company and further advance the potential of its employees. The variety of diversity groups helps us to all feel united across multiple locations. Lots of good things on the horizon at First Data!"
"In my opinion, the company (owned now by KKR) is trying to make its books look good for its upcoming IPO. It's getting rid of many employees, some of them have been with the company for decades, with arbitrary and detached company policy changes. First Data has great potential as a workplace and a company, but I don't see it realizing that potential with its upper management in its current state."
"I've worked for First Data Corps. Since 2012. The company is currently undergoing a substantial transformation from a payments company to a technology company under its new CEO."
"This is a tough place to work. Re-organizations are the norm, not the exception. There are multiple-layers of management -- VPs reporting to VPs reporting to VPs, etc. -- and that leads to decision paralysis. I work with one of top development teams in the company, however I do not feel the team is valued by upper management, though we have legions of fans elsewhere -- mainly because we are very responsive. I would think long and hard before taking an IT job here. I was warned and didn't listen. Benefits have been pared back. Retirement is a joke. No bonuses or raises or very little in 2015."
"FirstData shaves employee headcount frequently."
"It's a nice company to work in although they pay very less to the intern."
"I work for the internet solutions department. The department is a good department and has friendly coworkers."
"New senior management in place. Expect positive things in the future."
"FirstData is a multinational company with over 1000 employees. It is a fortune 500 company as well. The company has good work culture and good opportunities."
"Huge company, lots of room for growth."
