Future was uncertain for company. Lots of rumors on direction company was taking. Not enough information flowing down to lower levels.

    I worked at Outerwall full-time

    Pros

    Good office space. Casual environment.

    Cons

    Low base salary by promising bonuses, stock grants, etc. They tried to make you think they care about you, you be part of family, etc. But in the end you are just a number to them. When the management want to boost their own bonus, they would LAY you OFF like you're nothing, just before Christmas and ruin your holidays. They do it at this time so that they can ROB you of your promised bonuses and stock grants! You have been warned!

    Advice to Management

    Try to be more compassionate and not be too greedy! What goes around will come around!

    I have been working at Outerwall full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The pay My co-workers not much else

    Cons

    Leadership is very isolated. They do not seek / bring competent people into the group to help them make the right decisions. There is no opportunity if you aren't considered an insider Lot's of suspicion and mistrust Obvious decisions take a back seat to favoritism. My very competent co-workers are kept from fixing what is obviously broken. It's a very tough place to work. Goldmine for SAP consultants.Two plus years and it still is not 25% implemented.. wow It is so embarrassing
