I worked at NetSpend full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Dynamic Environment, Good Leadership, Lots of Energy and Interest in Innovation. Acquirer adds a very strong brand and reputation to the business and opportunities for the business are large.

Cons

The Company was recently acquired so there's uncertainty amongst the employees about the impact on the culture in the long run.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try to preserve the great things about the Company

    A good place to learn

    I have been working at NetSpend

    Pros

    Great location downtown, good work-life balance, good recognition program. Good morale and departments get along generally well for the most part.

    Cons

    No diversity in upper management, no formal career development for employees, women and minorities seem to struggle for promotions and when turned down or overlooked, they leave for better pay and better opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your employee base. If you have 45% women, you should have 45% women in leadership. If you have 45% minority, then have 45% representation in leadership. Train, develop and promote.

    I worked at NetSpend full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Free parking, downtown location, good security

    Cons

    Horrible management - big egoes, follow gut rather than data, do not care about the employees that actually complete the work that brings in or saves money. Fighting between departments and locations -Austin thinks San Mateo is full of lazy idiots, supervisors actually tell you to ignore stupid requests and phone calls. They waste money on parties with full paid bars (during office hours and after), booking bands for merger parties, etc. And after all that spending, they eliminate positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Company needs a complete overhaul. You need to care about your employees as much as you do the bottom line. Stop playing favorites and backing stupid moves.
