    I have been working at Blackhawk Network full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Blackhawk is a growing company with tons of tremendous diverse talent. The staff has been very helpful over the first 90 days and I have the pleasure of working on a highly functional scrum team. It has great leadership as well making it a fun place to work.

    Cons

    Lots of acquisitions over the past couple of years will eventually mean consolidation.

    Advice to Management

    Be as transparent as possible with regards to consolidation plans and the implications it will have on employees. Consider allowing good employees the opportunity to work remotely after consolidation.
