    I worked at Coinstar full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great CEO & CFO
    A company with a lot of promise business wise
    Pockets of good leaders that work hard
    Employees that are generally committed

    Cons

    Lack of HR support....way too lean and highly conservative. As a business leader, my hands were tied when it came to hiring and firing.

    Advice to Management

    Need to truly merge/align with Redbox. It is difficult to have employees in Chicago that experience one thing and others in Bellevue who experience something else. Coinstar should be one company.

    Reinvent HR. It needs to be a value-added partner to us business leaders, not just policy enforcers.

    I have been working at Coinstar full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Free Food and free DVDs

    Cons

    Way too many to list

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with your employees, don’t just talk about integrity, rather practice and believe in it. Having a bunch of lame and dis-honest manager will ultimately fail you. Promote with in rather than off the street
