Decent benefits
Average salary
Below top management, the people are tremendous

Cons

Pretty political

Strategic planning could be much better
Mid-level managers and below are under-appreciated

This is for top management:
Find expertise in current and emerging technologies - you don't have it now.
Look to your assets in mid-level management and below to foster innovation.
Asses your R&D spending to maximize the results.

    I worked at Blackhawk Network full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The company is situated in a convenient location.

    Cons

    The turnover there is incredible particularly in the IT/engineering groups and Accounting. The number of people leaving the company without a job is astonishing. For 95% of the people there, the workload is HUGE, compensation is a joke and the working conditions are horrendous (they've implemented bench seating...it's like working on a fully occupied picnic table).

    Advice to Management

    Running a business includes knowing how to treat your employees.
