No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Fairly small company, some opportunity to advance with extra effort
Decent benefits
Average salary
Below top management, the people are tremendous

Cons

Pretty political
Management is not very decisive
Strategic planning could be much better
Mid-level managers and below are under-appreciated

Advice to Management

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 as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good Location
    Good business model
    Money back up from Safeway

    Cons

    Please stay from this company if you are professional. IT executives are not qualified to run the business. No process, things are getting done forcefully or by threating. There is no life work balance

    Top management is completely waste starting from Directors. No one is qualified
