I have been working at Outerwall full-time (less than an year)Pros
Outerwall really cares about growing their people professionally, and that shows through how employees are rewarded, how they are treated and the culture of "just do it" that pervades throughout. There is an opportunity to explore those things you are interested in professionally and seeing if that's where your career will take you.
From where I sit, the work-life balance is absolutely amazing. I have never felt like I've had to sacrifice my personal life for the job, but on the same token I have never felt bored. I don't know how they've figured this out, but it's much appreciated. This isn't true for all teams, but it is for a lot.Cons
The company is in flux. With Redbox projected to decline in the next 3-5 years, there is some uncertainty about where the next big revenue generator will be. There are some great opportunities, but since each individual business operates in their own bubble, it can be hard to use resources in one LOB to support a new, burgeoning one.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Just keep pushing more work *across* LOBs instead of keeping them siloed. More work should be in Shared Services in order to create scale, objectivity and flexibility throughout the organization. Leaders need to be more inspirational and passionate.RecommendsPositive OutlookNo opinion of CEO

Phone screen with HR to.start. Good. Moved on to hiring manager screen. Good. Moved on to on site interview. Good. after ok interview, I DID NOT RECEIVE ANY FOLLOW UP. Obviously, did not receive an offer, but no one at Outerwall communicated their decision nut to pursue my candidacy. I followed up with HR and the hiring manager, but never received a response. Rude. I no longer use their products.Interview Questions
