Approves of CEO

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

Pros

Great benefits -- good pricing of health benefits. New executive management team has potential. Good atmosphere to work in -- building is nice and space is pleasing to work in.

Cons

Bring back the 401k match! Better communication -- celebrate successes. Employees should be finding out from company not reading about it in a press release.

Advice to Management

Realize that change isn't easy but it's inevitable.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Free fruit. Coworkers are helpful and friendly. There are(were?) a lot of talented it people.

    Cons

    Employees with talent/experience have been leaving at a fast pace, and the skills and experience they had are not being replaced. The company seems to be promoting finger pointing and ass covering, rather than risk taking and innovation.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out why the talented people keep leaving and stop it. We are a technology company, and its much cheaper to keep talent than it is to find it.

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

    Pros

    Friendly, hardworking people
    Open modern work environment
    Ping Pong game to relieve stress
    Flexibility whenever employees need to take care of personal business
    Shared knowledge cross-fuctionally
    Excellent med/dental benefits w/low monthly premiums....PPO is very good!
    An abundance of collaboration work areas and flat screen TVs throughout the building
    Salary is very competitive, even in comparison to larger companies

    Cons

    Many employees are negative in their thinking, which spreads Venom throughout the company and this makes it hard to remain positive
    New leadership terminated (not lay-offs) a lot of employees this year and now the morale is low but hopefully it will pick up
    The 401(k) matching has been suspended for almost one year now
    It is hard to please everyone
    ******My advice to employees "if you are so unhappy here, please do the employees with a good attitude a favor, and find employment elsewhere"***** we just want to work and make the best of this situation

    Advice to Management

    The hardest part is behind you, so look forward to better days

    Also be patient with employees because we are not idiots and we are here by choice and we want to help you achieve organizational goals
