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

Pros

People are conscientious about their work and friendly. Company is stable, but becoming a little less so as they try to find their way in a quickly changing world. Pace is a little slow, but on the upside, work life balance is good.

Cons

Most of the company moves at a very slow pace, with perhaps the exception of the New Ventures organization. With a recent leadership changes, including at the CEO level, direction is a little unclear. Total compensation is below average for Seattle, particularly in the technology sector.

    I worked at Outerwall full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great salaries and bennies, friendly coworkers who care about the business, lot of team spirit, great work/life balance, culture below management is extremely good.

    Cons

    Management doesn't know what they're doing, technology is so not rocket science; abusive, managers who say/can do what they want without consequences.

    Practise the Coinstar values!!!

    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    The culture is great. Teams are collaborative with a genuine interest in improving the business. With the new CEO the executive team is top notch, diverse and the best I've worked with in my long career. They also focus on and invest in the environment, local community and giving back.

    Cons

    The systems and process need a lot of improvement; however, the management team recognizes this and are moving in the right direction - but it will take time.

    With the management team split between WA and IL, the distance and phone vs. face-to-face can be challenging.

    Advice to Management

    Keep moving in the direction headed. Expand the successful pilot businesses faster to off-set the slower growth of Coin and Redbox. Look for international opportunities.
