Company sorely needs direction and improved internal communication. Management needs to better engage employees.

Pros

Strong technical talent exists at Ascent.

Cons

Poor internal company strategy or direction communication. Focused solely on the bottom line. Little financial support given to important initiatives.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Improve internal communication - directly engage employees in small group meetings. Where is this company going? What is its core focus?

    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.

    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
