    I have been working at Mood Media full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Lots of PTO. When it was Muzak, we had fun company events, good pay, and things were looking up. The trouble started when Mood Media purchased the company.

    Cons

    Worked here company for 7 years, it was great before Mood Media bought it. Haven't had a raise in about 5 years. Company boasts "500 million in profits" on the Undercover Boss CBS special just two weeks ago, but follows it up with mass layoff just last week, citing "need to streamline the business". Since Mood Media took over the US companies (Muzak, Trusonic, DMX), they've kept all pay increases HALTED, no more 401 matching, less benefits and back to back layoffs. Employees are doing the jobs of what was once done by 3-5 people. There are no promotions. The CEO, Lorne, responds to inquiries about pay increases with the response: "If you work here for the money, you're in it for the wrong reason". Though I'm sure he's got no problem making a profit. Seems as though the company is cutting operating costs with NO regard for the outcome of the company. Goal is likely to snow the investors, make the books look pretty and re-sell the company to some poor sap who it will then collapse under. Lorne is a hedgefund baby that has no love for the company or industry. RUN AWAY!! They will USE you and LOOSE you!!

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating your employees like disposible waste. You're loosing your most valuable assests, experianced employees.

    I worked at Mood Media as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Given the cultural -- and more relevantly to this posting, musical -- significance that Austin has been garnering for itself over the last few years, DMX (now known as "Mood Media") stands to continue its key role of providing on-site marketing solutions to a wide array of businesses. The corporate culture can best be described the corporate culture found at Mood Media can best be described as "fast-paced," for which one should always be prepared, but also by which one can be caught off-guard.

    Cons

    Despite reading the description for the position I would ultimately be hired for, I was nonetheless hard-pressed to find any similarities between the the posting and the duties of the job itself. To wit, the majority of training, the various types of amplifiers, receivers, and various other electrical components needed for the correct playing of music primarily focusing on the wiring needed to ensure this occurred. In hindsight, I suspect that underscoring how critical familiarity with electronics, wiring and the like would make the process seem less dissimilar.

    Advice to Management

    With such a vast amount of information to be covered, Power Point presentations might not be the most effective method for delivering this material. Changing trainers after only the first week in the classroom appeared less-than-professional as did announcing a concert at most the day prior to the performance itself made it appear as if any scheduling had been at the last minute.
