    Former Employee - IT Technician in New York, NY

    I worked at Aegis Media full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    None other than there were a few good people there.

    Cons

    Office culture is based on who you know and how much you play their political game. Those who are truly talented but don't want to get caught up in office politics never get promoted while those who play the political game and do little work get promoted. Basically it is full of cliques and if you are outside then you have no place to go. Bad salaries. Horrible middle and upper management who will literally look you in the eye and lie to you. Do not believe anything management says.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your employees what they deserve. Stop the culture where only the political people get promoted. Have your employee's review their supervisors and actually take action on those instead of just making them fit your needs. Stop outsourcing your IT department and support staff.

    I have been working at Aegis Media

    Pros

    My boss and Co-workers were great people

    Cons

    They don't even give you time and a half for working holidays. I really don't even know if that's legal. I was also denied reimbursement multiple times. They increased productivity for PTA'S 85% to 90% and would call you and your boss if you ever were under. I really don't think this companies management cares about the pt.'s. Seems like it's more about the money.
