Pros

- Good benefits. Better than average insurance. Base pay fairly competative. Bonus was usually above 100%. Nice office space, usually snacks in kitchen. Wellness plan - Some professional development support. Internal training for manager. Decent onboarding process - Tries to promote good corporate culture. Quarterly meetings, Holiday party, summer picnic, department events

Cons

- Rapidly changing priorities that border on chaos. Everything is "priority 1". A lot of things get done, but get done poorly. - Too much system knowledge held with only a few key people, many of them contractors - Lots of internal politics and closed door deals, this has increasingly gotten worse as the company grows - Weak PMO. Most "ScrumMasters" have no idea what Agile is or how to guide their teams to follow it. - Unrealistic expectations from the business about when technology solutions can be delivered

Advice to Management

Define consistent technology processes and hold people accountable to follow it. Do not promote people based on politics but rather skill and experience. Staff appropriately and allow projects to be completed with quality. Improve communication between the business and technology, there is a lot of ill will generated because of poor communication and rumors. Be more thoughtful about outside hires, don't just hire someone because they know someone or to meet some quota targer/deadline, really see if they are a culture fit. You have some good people working there that are becoming increasingly checked out because it costs too much mental sanity to keep caring.

    Pros

    Only pro I could find is the unlimited amount of movies you can watch

    Cons

    Horrible field manager...Unsafe working conditions. Company does not allow employee to protect themselves from harm. Kioks are at some really bad locations. For the little pay they offer, your life is not worth it Most employees carry guns, but the company prohibits any form of protection. If you complain about your supervisor you will pay for it. Stey away from this company at all costs....

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of some of the managers that have no people skills....Shouldn't be managers in the first place...

    Pros

    Good Pay Decent Vacation Time 52 cents per mile reimbursement Working alone, self supervised

    Cons

    Use your personal car to travel from kiosk to kiosk Working on outside kiosks in bad/cold weather Part of your review is based on a secret shopper who might visit a kiosk after someone smashed the touch screen or vandalised the machine and it counts against you.

    Advice to Management

    More skip level meetings
