    I have been working at IZ-ON Media as a contractor (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule, able to work nights, weekends, or when ever. Paid drive time and mileage. Great job if you are a stay-at-home parent.

    Cons

    Not full time thus no medical benefits. Communication gap between management and ISRs. No opportunities for advancement. Only a job not a career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grow your network.

    Execs not in sync with their businesses. This is not a people oriented company even tho the only asset IZON has is people

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Worst management, good co-workers

    I have been working at IZ-ON Media full-time

    Pros

    Many good, hard working co-workers. Pretty much a 9-5 job.

    Cons

    It's a mystery: How do people with no skills and gossip stay in management? It's ridiculous. Just look at the Marketing Sales, Strategy and Client Services departments, for starters. No wonder IZON is a sinking ship. It also has no clear strategic direction. Everyone is looking for other jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lead by example and treat your employees with respect and you'll get some in return.

    Pros

    Nice people
    Great health benefits

    Cons

    Upper management tries really hard to bring cultural changes, but they do not seem to harmonize. Spends too much money on things that should not be priorities, and ended up downsizing the company.

    The industry is pretty new and hard to sell.

    Pros

    Culture Change - Working to redefine and establish a working culture to increase the employee morale. IZ-ON has a lot of different departments that require groups of people to work together towards a common goal. Flexible schedules. Really encourage and enfore Work/Life Balance

    Cons

    Still transitioning from the "old" ways of doing things to the "new" Technicolor processes. Overall the new culture movement has been well received despite a handful of naysayers that don't believe it will work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have been working at IZ-ON Media full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Work/life balance and positive empployees. However, such an extreme work/life balance is indicative of a company that is behind the times from a technological standpoint.

    Cons

    No equity upside to be had, dated technology/products, a shifting model and limited capital make it very hard for a much-needed seismic shift.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop trying to put a new coat of paint on the house and do a truly innovative rebuild from the studs up.

    Indecisive and political

    Pros

    They are trying to change. Too many not willing to embrace it and recognize its benefit.

    Cons

    Resource constraint too frequently used as a reason for not doing it right the first time. Too many band aids and patches.

    Pros

    None. Not really anything good I can say about the company. Pretty relaxed work environment but that's about it.

    Cons

    Upper management lies about the numerous opportunities at the company when there are none. Pay is WAY BELOW the average. Upper Management only listens to Technicolor (their parent company). The more you push to improve youself/dept/company - the more you will be shown the door. Ahmed Ouri (President) and Martin Fry (COO) obviously do not know what they are doing. Why would you split up the I.T. dept? Why do you need to fabricate lies to terminate people (my own personal experience). Seriously see nothing good coming from this company since they have the Culture Initiative going on. Just another re-badge of Operational Excellence or Re-Engineering.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take notice of your employees on the front line. Stop allowing the Sales People to literally verbally abuse the I.T. department which happens on a regular basis without cause for reprimand. CEO, COO and all of upper management need to be replaced if the company is to stay alive. Technicolor should just incorporate IZ-ON and clean house.
