No opinion of CEO

I worked at Coinstar as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

Good Pay
Decent benefits
Company Car
All in all its just a regular job, nothing so spectacular to speak of that it needs to be said here. About the most exciting thing is a Company car... OH and a 4G LTE smart phone :)

Cons

Management has no idea what is going on half the time, and they are quick to blame you for every bad decision they make. 0% supervision until it comes time for numbers and reports at the end of the month.

Advice to Management

Stop hiring at the top and concentrate on hiring and developing quality workers.

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

    Pros

    Solid benefit package
    Opportunities to advance
    You get to work with bright people
    Lots of fun company events, such as going out for private movie screenings at a local cinema
    Nice office space to work in

    Cons

    You need to be responsible for your own career, as the company is not strong on helping you to identify a career path
    A little heavy on 'Directors' in the organization: we need fewer bosses and more workers

    Advice to Management

    Spend some time talking with your employees and letting them know that you recognize their efforts and care about them as employees and as people
