Pros

Culture is fantastic and the upper management are all very nice, good, caring people. Pay is great. Free food all the time. Lots of fun company events.

Cons

Lots of socially stunted people. i.e. nerds. Lots of complainers that complain about the most trivial details.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep doing what you do. Stop with the surveys though-- gives people an outlet to complain all day and there is nothing to complain about.

    Pros

    The people that work at Media Temple are a great bunch who are always willing to lend a hand and "get stuck in". Good team spirit and lots of opportunities to interact both in and out of hours. Excellent work environment with flexible hours (if your position affords you that option).

    Cons

    During my time at Media Temple there were a number of "initiatives" that were launched to improve our systems. Some were internal-only, some were customer-facing. A good many of these never saw the light of day because of poor management foresight/involvement (see advice to management section). As a result, don't get too attached to what you're working on...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    "Entropy will kill you."
    There comes a point in the life of a successful company when you need to grow-up. Those things that used to work for you as a small company no longer work, and can even hold you back. Media Temple has well and truly reached that point where you can/should no longer invite every single interested party to participate in every decision - they're holding you back.
