Former Employee - Marketing Manager in Oakbrook Terrace, IL
Former Employee - Marketing Manager in Oakbrook Terrace, IL

I worked at Redbox full-time (more than an year)

Pros

The pace is extremely fast and priorities can sometimes change within hours. If you have an entrepreneurial mindset, this is definitely the right place for you.

Cons

The pace is extremely fast, which can at times feel more chaotic than exhilirating. Leadership is one-way (top-down) instead of collaborative.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Innovative ideas will come if you open yourself to more collaboration instead of dictating in a command-and-control top-down style.

    I worked at Redbox full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits, A good culture that is slowly being chipped away by the suits at Coinstar, Good employee work/life balance.

    Cons

    Low pay, Managers and Directors who did not act with any sense of decorum, Office Politics, Lack of Career Path, Culture changed dramatically with Coinstar buyout, No loyalty to longtime employees, High turnover.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a good luck at how things are done and slowly, less aggresively make changes. Recognize the employees that you have that work hard without all of the recognition that you save for the loudest voices.
