    Pros

    Talented Co-Workers, flexible start time

    Cons

    Does not pay employees on time. NO work-life balance. Expectation is your work is your life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your employees and make sure they get their paychecks on time. Don't make your employees work 60+ hrs a week.

    We are very sorry that this perspective on your time with us is not fully positive. Knetik pays everyone in full and on time for every paycheck, and understands that you don't revolve around us ... More

    Pros

    Loose environment where work goes hand in hand with play, great opportunity to grow and expand your skills as well as work on interesting and unique properties. They have several different types of projects revolving around delivering media through the web.

    Cons

    Sometimes more work than we might know what to do with, but that's not necessarily a bad thing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep growing, keep getting more projects, and allowing the employees to grow with it.

    Great co-workers, caring employers, always new opportunities to learn and grow, and flexible work atmosphere

    Currently none. Anything I've had to address that would be a 'con' was taken care of immediately.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue the great forward momentum.

    I worked at Knetik Media

    Pros

    The company management is very generous and allowed me to continue my education while under employment, also when a personal matter arose they where more then generous with allowing me time off. The management was willing to listen to me make criticism about the company and policy and used it in a constructive manner to build and grow. The projects are often very exciting and deal with large structure such as clustered databases and servers this often made the process of development very educational. Also the developer team is often very supportive and willing to listen to all opinions and feedback on challenging problems that might arise.

    Cons

    The project managers where somewhat overbearing in obtaining and following deadlines, even if the deadline was outrageous. They often would not accept reasonable estimates and if given an estimate would immediately communicate that to the client as a deadline completely ignoring QA process.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Tell project managers to back off, plan ahead, and allow time for client and developer feedback, Also allow time for planning and to create the proper list of priorities, just because a client is upset does not make their project a drop everything emergency.

    I worked at Knetik Media

    Pros

    Relaxed environment without a lot of micromanagement. Usually working on large and somewhat interesting projects, so at least its wasn't boring.

    Cons

    A lot of time it seemed management had some very unrealistic expectations in the way they calculated project deadlines. Generally expect to work 70-80 hours a week, EVERY week. (and weekend, and be expected to answer emails at 3am) They also seem to have a very bad habit of NOT paying former employees what they're owed. Don't expect to receive anything after you leave.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop much better project management and time estimation skills. Just because a client throws money at you, it doesn't mean its feasible from a technical stand point.

    Pros

    They will assign you jobs, so good for staying busy if you have lazy times.

    Cons

    Many employees didn't get paid and left the company since the beginning of the company. So, please be careful before starting with PHXX.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You should be honest and pay to your employees. Stop giving false promises, please.
