I worked at Blackhawk Network

Pros

1) good location close to the mall
2) great engineers except for a few
3) CSO is very intelligent and very hard working

Cons

1) clueless engineers are getting promoted even if they do not do anything
2) some engineers were hired just to fill in positions so literally anyone who walks in the door gets the job.
3) 1 and 2 is an insult to the hardworking engineers that work there
4) because of 1 and 2 good engineers are leaving

Advice to ManagementAdvice

promote the ones that deserve to be promoted and get rid of the ones that are pulling the team down... don't promise employee retention programs and then leave the next week.

    Pros

    A huge majority of the people are wonderful to work with, great commute, alot of unrecognized talent.

    Cons

    Management leads and encourages bullying.
    Management talks negatively about directs.
    Management doesn’t get along with each other.
    Talented people are brought in and leave broken.
    Directs are more talented than management by a huge margin.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please please please hire managers that know how to manage rather than hire than bullies.

    I have been working at Blackhawk Network

    Pros

    Some of the nicest people I've ever worked with. My co-workers are very hard working, helpful and smart. HR creates fun & team-building activities.

    Cons

    Long hours. Overwhelming work load and impractical deadlines. Too many Chiefs; not enough Indians. High burn-out rate. Changing priorities compete with accomplishment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect and acknowledgment for the hard-working contributors. Better communication to the teams. Hold business accountable to a plan and stick to an attainable plan. Changing priorities and competing demands distract from the possibility of accomplishment (for any one deliverable).
