While there was a rough patch not too long ago during a transition the company has definitely come back swinging and the management team are really starting to get the ship back on course. Things have dramatically improved in just the last six months and I really like what I'm hearing about what the plans are for the next six.
This is a company on the rise. The dust has settled after they were acquired by a parent company in 2013 and now the new management team are really starting to get some traction and support from the parent company and shape a real powerhouse here. There were a lot of issues during the transition and I'll be the first to admit that a lot of people had every right to feel salty about the way they were treated during that period but everything I'm seeing now says that those days are behind them.
The management team are very supportive of their employees and take pains to be open and approachable and I've never had an issue getting my side of the story heard and getting management support when clients have made unreasonable demands or accusations. It's honestly so nice to be in a company that values its employees more than its clients.
Not that they give a bad experience to clients. I honestly feel good about working with my clients here because I know that we're giving them a solid product with good value for money. I feel like I'm telling them the truth when I say that they're going to see great results from their website or marketing campaign and anyone who's worked in online marketing for long enough will tell you that's not always the case.
There is a great deal of corporate oversight from the parent company which means that a lot of decisions take much longer than they should to be made. Everything from promotions to new product and marketing decisions needs to go three or four links up the chain before it gets okayed and that can mean that the company is sluggish in responding to certain situations.
Advice to Management
My advice to the management would be just this, get more independence from the parent company on day to day matters. Team Leaders shouldn't need to wait a month or more to get additional head count approved when its sometimes, often even, desperately needed. I suppose it's more advice to the parent company than the management at Imatrix itself. Give Imatrix the freedom to grow on their own. Give the people in the trenches the decision making power they need and they'll do much better and grow much faster than they're able to right now.

- No OfferPositive ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at iMatrix (California).
Took about two weeks from start to finish, spoke with a recruiter then had additional interviews on site. Throughout the process they made it very clear what you are getting into and the details of the position. Interesting company, sounds exciting but just not right fit for me right now. They seem to be growing fast with lots of opportunities-great if you are looking to get into a sales position.
