I worked at Green Dot full-time

Pros

This is a company with a good balance sheet and a large customer base. The people at the company on the whole are the best part of working there. Employees want to work hard and be successful. There is definitely opportunity if you are motivated and driven.

Cons

Since the IPO, majority of the senior leadership that got the company to where it is have departed. There have been a lot of growing pains. Some large projects started and then stopped. Company culture is fear-based. A lot of turnover; esp. talented people have left. Morale is low. Hiring is erratic.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Many employees are loyal and work hard but are not valued as they should be. Retention is an issue. Management and leadership need to improve.

    I worked at Green Dot full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - good learning experience

     - decent pay and some good co-workers

    Cons

    - incapable CEO

     - incapable IT management all coming from the same previous company
    and not based on qualifications. they seem to be more interested in politics
    and making room for their ex-coworkers

     - work is done with short term vision and 'it is good for now' attitude, resulting in re-write pretty much every year

     - more political games are played and less work is done by the IT management

     - instead of fixing the issues, problems are hidden under new process and procedures

     - lot of good people left and more are on their way out. low employee morale.

     - management talks about transparency but it seems to only apply to employees

     - poor communication between different groups and no clear vision

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    to any board member that cares: lot of people are complaining about the same thing around the same time and that has to mean something. it is still not too late to fix what is broken
