    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

    I have been working at Green Dot full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Spent +5 years at GDOT
    Hard working, smart and friendly co-workers

    Cons

    Management team is a mess with incredible turnover over the last ~2 years (President, COO, CFO, CIO & CMO)
    The best people have left post-IPO including former CFO
    CEO is a great founder but the wrong person to lead the company at this point
    GDOT is known to hire people and then get rid of them within 3-6 months

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Replace CEO with someone that has led a public company.
    Immediately replace Chief Revenue Officer -- he is completely inept, overall bad person, always looking for the next subordinate he can launch under the bus and only cares about maintaining his job rather than working hard / developing talent

    Doesn't Recommend

    Disapproves of CEO
