  • “When a colleague of mine joined MoneyGram, I thought it was a great place to work at. The multi-cultural working environment is a great experience, especially in an open-space office. I appreciate meeting and working with people from all over the world. Getting to know different cultures and trying to understand them broadens your horizons, if you keep an open mind.

    I have been with the company for over a year now and I am pleased to be a part of it. Recently, I have changed my role in the compliance department and I am learning something new everyday. I see challenges as opportunities for progress and my duties never keep me bored.

    When I was an English teacher, before I began my AML experience, I enjoyed working with people, having impact on their lives and feeling that what I did mattered. I found a similar feeling here, at MG, where just by looking at the data you can sometimes see real life stories. Helping fraud victims (It could have been your grandma who got scammed) and reporting the bad guys are definitely rewarding. I enjoy working at MG, I like the people I work with and generally, I like my job. It's an environment I would recommend to everyone.”

It was clear from the first day during the recruitment processes that I was dealing with not only professionals but as well friendly community.

    Once I joined the vibe was high, new colleagues from all over the world, different cultures, backgrounds and life experiences. All working helping each other with the workload and sharing the nice moments and building new friendships.

    It is the Diversity, respect to each other, the acceptance, the team work spirit which makes MoneyGram the perfect place to innovate and grow. Proud to be member of this family.”

    Ahmed Khalil -Due Dilligence Analyst II (Poland)
  • “In Compliance, we strive to make enhancements daily. Therefore, attending meetings with other colleagues and the Head of Compliance to discuss enhancements and solutions is a very important part of the day.

    Working alongside some amazing colleagues here at MoneyGram has encouraged me to work harder. I do not just work within my job duties. My daily goal is to do more than the minimum. How can I maximize this day? Having that mind set has helped my career, I have been promoted to Supervisor of the very team in which I started as Compliance Officer II.”
