I have been working at Cardtronics full-time for more than 5 yearsPros
There have been MANY growing pains and LOTS of hard work but things are getting better. There has been a renewed focus this year to quantify the amount, expense and quality of work/projects being churned through the EFT IT department. I work with VERY smart people that I am proud to call team members and even bosses. Now I cannot speak for every team in the Frisco office as I do know that while we all have heavy workloads, the lack of team cohesion in other groups has led to finger pointing and dissatisfaction. Some of this has been caused by a lack of direction, communication and leadership from the upper levels...as other reviews have mentioned.
I will say that I feel that my boss has my back 99.999% of the time. I do feel our team is appreciated and paid well.
We flat out are the juggernaut of the EFT industry. It is exciting to be on the knife's edge of technology for this industry.
Free sodas/water/coffee, sometimes lunch, nice facilities
Nice business park.Cons
Too much direct access to us worker bees from managers, departments and endpoint vendors from outside of IT.
Direction should be well defined and dictated by established processes. This is another work in progress.
Lack of focus for priorities and directives. While major strides have been made, there is still a seemingly daily ebb and flow to priorities.
There are some 9-5 jobs in this office but very few. If you are a manager or operations support employee, you can expect 50 - 60 hours per week minimally. On call weeks can ring in nearly 80 hours. You will WORK here.
The corporate IT department could use some improvement when it comes to desktop support for the employees.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Stop providing such easy and lateral access to the people in the trenches from other departments within the company.
Stop downsizing the cubicles and cramming us in like sardines. It's demoralizing and forces every employee to unwittingly intrude on each others privacy and sensibilities. Along those same lines, don't seat your stressed out 24/7 warriors with your 9-5 normal folks. It's a different culture and leads to personality conflict.
We are now a VERY culturally diverse office. To minimize the risk of offending others beliefs or customs, you need to structure some sensitivity training ASAP.
Covered parking would be nice.
More career path opportunities please.
Listen to your gurus when they tell you to slow down on projects so they can be done right the first time.RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO
