    Pros

    I liked the constant educational effort that went on in Greendot… Funny thing is though, most of what you learn is in theory, not applied to everyday work. Nevertheless, good info though.

    Cons

    I was not looking into writing reviews but since I stumbled on to this site, I’ll plug my two cents in…
    I worked in many companies in my time, I can easily say that Greendot takes the cake as one of the worst companies to work for. I was amazed how spot on all the negative reviews are. If I have a choice, I would never go back there again.
    I think good reviews were written by the management.
    Nepotism is ubiquities… Full of incompetent managers… Everyone is down on each other… Crappy code put together in a hurry… It is just not a pleasant place to work for. Very stuffy, unhappy work environment.
    I am out of there and so much happier…

    Advice to Management

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

    Pros

    - good place to gain IT experience and decent pay
    - good and fun co-workers.
    - learn all you can and then get out of there ASAP

    Cons

    - bad leadership by C level management. lot of office politics. open door policy is useless
    - wrong and inexperienced people get rewarded and put in senior management positions
    - processes are created every couple of years but never followed
    - re-org happens every year or two
    - someone's laziness is always the result of a project being urgent.
    - project estimates are given to please the C level and meet their timeline which results in everything getting rushed and people getting overworked

    Advice to Management

    Message to GD Board: replace all your C level managers.
