Not a good company for Employees

  • Comp & Benefits
  • Work/Life Balance
  • Senior Management
  • Culture & Values
  • Career Opportunities
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

I have been working at Mood Media full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Flexible work schedule...not much else

Cons

Complete disregard for employees. Top employees are having pay taken away. No respecet from upper management whatsoever. Hostile and threatening work environment. Employees are scared everyday that the "layoff" call is coming. Sales executives are not rewarded for making and exceeding their quotas. Penalized for being a hardworker and successfull. Upper Management has zero regard for any employee.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If you want the company to meet revenue goals and grow I would suggest showing your employees a little respect and stop taking and start giving. Maybe a small 401K match might be nice. Follow the comp plan for sales executives and stop trying to find ways to steal money from them.

    Pros

    * Small business environment means you are not treated like a number. Everyone knows everyone, which tends to make things easier.
    * Great office atmosphere - music always playing, colourful characters, casual dress code, great office location.
    * There is scope for organisational development & change - you just need to know how to go about it!

    Cons

    * No employee benefits - you get your salary & super and that's it.
    * No opportunity for flexible work options i.e work from home.
    * Amateurs in terms of business process and policy - there are few documented processes, and guideline info / IP on how things work tends to reside with individual employees. High staff turnover with IP going out the door has certainly impacted the business.
    * Details are often overlooked - i.e the attitude is let's just jump in and see what happens. This results in errors, multiple workload, and increases in costs if external agencies are involved. There is not a project approach to most things, meaning people who should have been involved from the beginning are brought in half way through and expected to work miracles to make it all happen.
    * Environment & hierarchy can make you feel like you don't have a voice in terms of suggesting changes or a better way of doing things.
    * Culture is very time focussed. If you start at a certain time, you finish at a certain time. Instead of being workload focussed where you might go home a bit early because you've finished everything for the day, you feel like you have to stay until your 7.5 hours are completed.
    * Getting leave approved is like asking for a 100k pay rise. Annual leave is the right of every employee - the business will not fall apart (well, assuming there is sufficient support to maintain the workload - that's another story!)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    * Learn that you hire people to do a job they are qualified for. Confidence in people builds competence.
    * Implement better hiring strategies to get talented people into the business - makes point # 1 easier!
    * MD is a bit of a control freak - he wants to be involved in a lot of decisions and will often make changes / offer input just for the sake of it. He forgets that others might be the expert - learn to take a back seat and trust the decisions your employees make! Culture also reflects this top heavy approach - if I had a dollar for every time someone has said "I'll just run it past xx" or "Has xx asked for this?"......
