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

    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

    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.
