I worked at Ascent Media

Pros

It's a job. It could be worse.

Cons

Expect lots of results with few resources. Like many companies, they're concern about cost regarding everything. Some priorities are questionable.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I think the divestitures was a smart move. It should have been done years ago. Lots of hard working people that go on unacknowledged. You are fortunate you have very dedicated employees that love the industry.

    I worked at Ascent Media

    Pros

    tv work in nj
    not much else

    Cons

    nepotism, no degree of any kind needed to work here.
    people with no digital video experience work as "compressionists"
    people who don't even know what "right click on your mouse" means work with computers
    no clear direction of where the company is headed
    people with real skills and qualifications get laid off while incompetence gets rewarded

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't fire people with actual skills. Stop hiring people with no video background as compressionists

    I have been working at Ascent Media

    Pros

    close to home
    near many restaurants
    outstanding mix of personalities
    every day at work is a new adventure - there is alwys something you have never seen before

    Cons

    hours suck
    aging facility - equipment is in need of an upgrade - a lot of the equipment should just be trashed and the facility should start from scratch witha rebuild

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    press for a game plan for the future - upgrade equipment and look to weed out whatever malcontents remain.
