    I worked at Kinetica Media full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Laid back for the most part. A few paid holidays.

    Cons

    Inconsistent deadlines.

    Boss will not tell you about jobs until 2 days before they are due.

    No AC in small, cramped office.

    No sound baffling at all, you hear everything every person is doing at all times.

    Old, outdated equipment.

    The owner/manager outright misleads customers into paying for services that are free or he doesn't intend to deliver. (Charging over $1000 to install Wordpress)

    Owner uses employees for side jobs, and doesn't pay for the extra work.

    Owner often takes credit for the jobs workers do when presenting to clients despite having zero programming knowledge.

    Immense micro-management. Wants you to explain everything you do, provide task lists of things you worked on for every minute of the day. All while manually monitoring you so he can find any inconsistency.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You know what you're doing wrong... just stop.

    I worked at Kinetica Media full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Personal office space, good location to downtown Perrysburg, quiet, not a lot of pressure since things were prett slow, coffee, good opportunity for first time entry level job, christmas bonus

    Cons

    Disorganized, technology is very outdated, kind of a run down office, no air conditioning, old equipment, no real production environment, pay is far below industry norms but the company is set-up more as a "pump out templates" rather than true strategic partnerships, sometimes the "salesy" environment makes things feel a little dishonest towards clients, company hasn't really evolved with the industry. Designs look the same as they did 10 years ago.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just keep doing what you're doing, I dont think you really have enough knowledge to take your company beyond the "off the shelf" kind of packaged solutions.

    I have been working at Kinetica Media

    Pros

    I like the freedom, the people, the clients and the projects. I'm very excited for the new projects that Kinetica Media is engaging in. We have great client retention rate and the clients for the most part seem pleased with our services and recommend us a lot.

    Cons

    The things I don’t like about Kinetica Media are few at this point. Sometime the deadlines get stressful and there never seems that there is enough time in the day to complete all the work I have (which is a lot mostly). There isn’t any A/C in the building so it can get pretty hot in here.. Other than that, I like working with the team and Kinetica’s clients.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Chris, stay focused on the big picture and work on the business..... not in the business. You are a much better entrepreneur than a manager :) Stick to what you are good at and let your staff do to what they are good at.
