    Pros

    Blackhawk has a great business model and been creative at turning a prepaid commodity business into a widely dispersed retail network. There are sets of people that are truly dedicated employees and work very hard at what they do.

    Cons

    At times, key departments don't work welll together at the Sr. Mgmt level and doesn't always give clear directions to the managers that are responsible for execution. Also they seem to be disconnected at times from the realities of the situation.

    Advice to Management

    Include middle management more in the strategic planning process. That will help align annual goals for the better.

    I worked at Blackhawk Network full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    thinking...still thinking...oh yeah, it was a short commute and tenure

    Cons

    the people are the absolute worst - backstabbers and bad people with poor skills - lack of competency, arrogant idiots who THINK they are something special and really aren't, people in positions of power who have NO ability to manager others yet they think they are just the greatest "managers"

    Advice to Management

    wake up...smell the coffee...no one wants to work for you...get a clue...retire
