One of the biggest mistakes I've ever made in my career was taking a job at Blackhawk

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Pleasanton, CA

ProsThe company is situated in a convenient location.

ConsThe turnover there is incredible particularly in the IT/engineering groups and Accounting. The number of people leaving the company without a job is astonishing. For 95% of the people there, the workload is HUGE, compensation is a joke and the working conditions are horrendous (they've implemented bench seating...it's like working on a fully occupied picnic table).

Advice to Senior ManagementRunning a business includes knowing how to treat your employees.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Worst company... Worst Managers...

    Software Engineer (Current Employee)
    Pleasanton, CA

    I have been working at Blackhawk Network full-time for less than a year


    Pros: Good Business, Great Idea, Backed by Safeway Cons: Worst place to work for, especially the Technology group. Bunch of dumbheads managing the technology group, who thinks they are the best in the industry… Advice to Senior Management: In bay area, where you have so many good managers, who proved themselves, as senior managers and chiefs, in good technology firms in silicon valley,… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More

    Playground for Some, Labor House for Others

    Implementation Specialist (Current Employee)
    Pleasanton, CA

    I have been working at Blackhawk Network full-time for more than 3 years


    Pros: Most Sr. Management positions & above work hard sometimes & get payed well. Everything beneath that level works 5x's as hard but never sees… Cons: The HR department is completely non-existant. This company works like a startup but is no longer a startup (in business for 10+ years). … Advice to Senior Management: Encourage additional education and training for all levels, especially HR,… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
