- Approves of CEO
I worked at Marketing Werks full-time
Creative, slow-paced environment for IT specialists, the opportunity to study and practice techniques and teach oneself new things existed. Video editing software, for example, I learned on the job. Also, my co-worker was able to study for his ACMT certification.
Fearful management and directors were afraid to push the envelope, write on the walls, and break down cubicle walls in order to become a part of the workplace of the new millennia. A creative marketing firm it was; it had work in video editing and graphics editing as well as promotional events at musical concerts and festivals, sporting events, and conventions as well as road tours across the United States from venue to venue. Their business model was to hire new graduates and pay them intern, hourly wages or a base of 35k and squeeze as much work out of them as possible. The firm offered a bonus of $100 dollars at the end of the year while ownership built a multi-million dollar home in California. My IT Director never showed us, his team, an operating IT budget. Education for staff was not mandatory nor was a budget item presented. The operational director was too lazy to do work and not the best mentor.
Advice to Management
Invest in your people while you continue to outsource. Encourage your people to learn things in order to fill missing gaps. Once your people have grown up to speed, renegotiate with your outsourced vendors and empower your staff in order to give them an opportunity to grow. Moreover, tear down the cubicle walls and put up more expo dry-erase walls for creative writing.
