What are other benefits and incentives like at Blackhawk Network?

Pros

Nice people. Some back-office and long-term employees actually care and work hard.

Cons

Poor management. Highly inadequate training for new hires and little direction for employees other than "sell" and "grow". Executives (new and old) get many more benefits and far more compensation than other employees and the company keeps the upper echelon small, often forcing out quality mid-level employees rather than giving competitive salaries and promotions. Execs are often MIA during normal working hours and can't be bothered to respond to emails, calls, etc. unless it affects their bottom line, even if the issue is their responsibility. Apply here if you'd like work hard to be paid at the bottom of your compensation bracket without clear prospects for advancement while watching lazy sales execs continually move up. If you're hired in the Pleasanton office they'll claim to pay competitively for a tech company in the SF Bay Area but you won't get average salary or bonus (let alone benefits like food and things that contribute to work-life balance), and you shouldn't expect equity unless you're an executive.

Advice to Management

Create a culture where people are rewarded for longevity and incentivized to be active in the workplace. The CEO should engage with employees (and know their names) rather than walking around all day with her head buried in her phone. Give actual acknowledgement and accolades to long-term employees (not just $5 "rewards" points). Have clear benchmarks for advancement and salary growth. Give equity to keep employees invested in the company. Be transparent with employees about job security and long term prospects.
