    I worked at Blackhawk Network full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The team constantly reaches new levels in results, in new tools to add to the ecosystem and more. The team leads I interacted with were great colleagues and many are now great friends. Overall, the atmosphere allows you to create the environment you want to thrive in, so it was a solid team and structure from my perspective. They also allocate the resources, both in people and budget, to allow you to reach your goals.

    Cons

    For those that aren't able to be flexible with priorities and certain structures, this might be the only negative I can think of.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Blackhawk Network full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    There was unlimited PTO and good if not pricey health insurance. There are really good people who still work there.

    Cons

    Upper management only focused on M&A, sales, lowering costs. BH is owned by private equity. There is little to no bonus outside of sales functions. There is no employee equity program and a weak 401k match. There is a large focus on shifting engineering from US based engineers to India and other low cost centers. Absolutely no clear communication or direction on company strategy, except that BH will continue to acquire more companies. There was so much squandered potential.
