Mission: DMI's mission is to build cultural bridges from Japan to the Western Hemisphere using Anime and Manga as a medium.
I worked at Digital Manga full-time (Less than a year)
Hours are flexible, get to read manga for free and get employee discount on merchandises. Work experience is fine for a junior level in web development. Work/Life balance was fine for me.
Low pay for the position but it comes with benefits after 3 months. Career opportunities seems bad considering that it is a small company. Feels like the company was having a tough time competing against the competitors. Previous people working as web developer and IT didn't leave much documentation.
Advice to Management
Better pay for the employees and have some team building events.
I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Digital Manga (Gardena, CA) in February 2016.
I received an email from the CEO and scheduled an interview time with him. On the day of the interview, we spoke a wide variety of things, from business planning and goals to future career potential for me, as well as company goals. In the end, I thought the CEO was a great person and looked forward to his response by email a few days later. The only reason why I declined was because the offer was a pay cut from what I was making at my previous job.
