    Pros

    Love the new Empathy Series and focus on building a strong culture. CEO is revolutionary in his approach to building teams. He encourages flexibility with FTO policy, is transparent in the quarterly all hands meetings so transparent that he had HR lead his review on the call with us all, created a culture team at Green Dot to help lead the work on creating a strong culture.

    Cons

    Not enough resources to cover all the work. System setups are more complex than needed that drive inefficiencies and complexity. Company is working on making system setups more streamlined and flexible.

    Beware of Failed Leadership (Not the whole company, just a specific department)

    May 26, 2022 - Project Manager 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - Amazing people to work with on a daily basis and on products that truly impact consumers in a positive way - 100% Remote work - Unlimited PTO (even though companies implement this to end up not paying accumulated PTO at the time of separation, and Green Dot knows the work is so much, there's hardly enough time or opportunity to take any meaningful time off)

    Cons

    - Extremely Low Pay: EXTREMELY, at LEAST around 60K-80K, and that is a serious issue to think about. - Full of lies and deceit specially when it comes to always having an excuse every year why there's no raise and no promotion, even when you take on the work of 1 or even 2 of the team members who left the organization, and who had higher titles than you. You do their job, but you don't deserve their title. - Extremely Low Raises: may amount to around $0.80/hour if you break it down (i.e. Raise Amount / 2080 = you get your hourly equivalent). Don't get me wrong, the company HAS Money, but you'll get promotions and raises every two seconds ONLY IF you're in the particular department head's "clique"/inner circle. Otherwise, you're just a piece of dirt with much more work and obligations than what's reasonable. - On a department level, Very insulting "leadership" (and I use that work loosely) that makes you feel you are worthless. There is no Professional leadership, just a dictatorship. Team member count in the department went down 80% in the past year due to people realizing they are worthy of much more in other organizations, not just in terms of Salary, but also in terms of quality of life, respect, true leadership that helps you grow, opportunities to excel, etc. Even new hires ended up leaving after a few weeks. - An HR team that shoves and hides the negative truth under the rug, instead of learning from them and taking corrective action - Town Hall meetings that promise many positive changes, but nothing changes in reality - You will be working MANY MANY MANY MANY MANY Hours, not just in exceptional cases, but as the NORM. That includes weekends, holidays. At the end of the year, if you consider the amount of work vs your annual salary, you'll need to divide your already-extremely-low-salary into at least half. Also important to mention, your physical health, mental health, and stress will absolutely be negatively impacted, along with your personal and family life.
