Merger(s) are difficult but Mood Media has what it takes to succeed for those who roll with the challenges.

Pros

4 weeks PTO, great benefits, job security (if you're a keeper) and limited micromanagement.

Cons

Restructuring is causing disorganization and confusion. Priorities seem muddled as everything has become an emergency and staff get excessive workloads piled on.

Advice to Management

Invest in talent - in short, pay better and you'll keep them. Even incentives would be sufficient but those offered lately have been unobtainable under the current paradigm.

    Pros

    PTO & the Muzak legacy employees that were still working in the Ft Mill, SC home office before the headquarters were transitioned to Austin, TX were the best to work with. Extremely loyal and the culture in Ft Mill, until the end of 2012 was fantastic.

    Cons

    Once Mood Media purchased Muzak then DMX and we were consolidated together under the Mood Media name everything turned to chaos. What made Muzak stand out above DMX's cookie-cutter approach was systematically dismantled, so instead of Mood raising the entire company to Muzak's much higher standards it's been reduced to DMX's lower albeit more profitable standards. And in the process, employees have just become part of a monetary number and very much disposable. No raises in approx 6 years.

    Advice to Management

    Do right by your clients and by your employees as you're not the only music provider out there. Cookie-cutter is not always best; sometimes custom-tailoring to specific needs and not making maximum profits for the higher-ups is the way to go to keep business in the long run. Without heeding this, you risk making your smaller competitors bigger and forces to be reckoned with.


  2. With Muzak for over 10 years until Mood took over and moved jobs to Austin.

    Pros

    Great benefits and time off. Worked with great people.

    Cons

    Unfortunately most of the good people were let go because entire departments were moved to Austin. Because of this most of the experienced people are gone and company is currently a mess.

    Advice to Management

    Good luck you are going to need it After working with Muzak during a previous centralization 8 years ago the next year is going to be hard. Maybe you should have kept some of the Muzak upper management, they knew the processes.
