I have been working at Coinstar full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Salary and benefits are good along with the movie rentals to the employees. The food eveyone brings in is also quite good...

Cons

Micro-management, terrible training, lack of direction from Management Team in the tax department. Unprofessional and juvenille behavior in the tax management team. The gossip and constant loud laughing is quite unprofessional and very distracting. Too many senseless meetings!

Advice to Management

Desperate need for a complete overhaul of the tax management team in Oakbrook, IL.

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

    Pros

    The pay is very good compared to the work

    Cons

    The company has no solid direction. There are teams of 12 people with 4 to 5 managers.
    Very HR top heavy. There were at least 3 HR reps for my department of less than 15 people.
    No career advancement. Management and HR talked nonstop about how employees needed a clear career path but when anyone tried to establish a way to make it happen they were shot down in endless meetings.
    To many egos to get anything done. People will completely kill projects simply because they didn't think of it. There is way too much political drama.
    No one wants to take accountability for decisions and employees pay the price.

    Advice to Management

    Lead your teams. Management tends to step back and be too hands off. There is very little direction and management is often invisible unless something is wrong and then it's just a big exercise in C.Y.A.
