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

    Pros

    Great ownership, great management. I like working for and with smart people. From the ownership to the CEO to the VPs to the department heads to the staff, this place is full of A players. Fast paced environment, constantly growing, constantly trying new things, constantly expanding. Companies of this type are always either for sale or are looking to buy, and this company is in buying mode. Benefits are good, with fully provided health insurance, HSA, vision, dental, and almost excessive amounts of PTO. Management expects a lot and will sever an employee who doesn't perform, but treats people well and rewards excellence. This is not a company for people who don't care about what they do. Enjoyable atmosphere with quarterly company happy hours, outings to hockey and baseball games, etc. Lunch provided once a week, breakfast provided once a week, and snacks and drinks always available. The biggest "pro" is the personnel, though.

    Cons

    Not a lot of room for upward mobility, yet. It's a small company and most of the VPs and department heads are fairly recent hires. There will likely be/should be more opportunities for advancement as the company grows and as new acquisitions are made.

    Advice to Management

    I am comfortable giving them my thoughts in person, so i don't need to put them here.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Gateway Media (Mountain View, CA) in February 2010.

    Interview

    I was schedule to meet the Director of PM but he was busy and I have to chat with the recruiter for almost 40 minutes. The HR/recruiter called another PM to interview me while waiting for the director. He was able to arrange for me an interview with the COO and we had good conversation. After 3 hrs the office, the Dir came and spoke to me for only 10minutes. After the interview, I did not get any call or email for the next step. This company is not professional.
