    I worked at Higher One full-time

    Pros

    Great culture and amenities (free lunch 3 days a week, gym, fun committee, wellness committee, casual dress code, open work environment, free parking, plenty of activities to participate in)
    Smart, hardworking, innovative coworkers, opportunity for growth and promotion.

    Cons

    There has been some negative press and some increased pressure on the industry that Higher One serves and thus Higher One too. As a result it is a more challenging environment for the company, the leadership, and each individual contributor and the employee morale has taken a huge hit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have a lot of talent in your employees, don't lose them while you focus on fighting through the current external pressures.
