Best Places to Work: 2015 (#50)
I have been working at TicketNetwork full-time (More than 8 years)
Multiple avenues for advancement. You are in control of your success. Large fully staffed cafeteria with free food all day long. Company is full of very intelligent, friendly people. Very comfortable, team-oriented atmosphere. Diverse, open workforce. Managers have your back.
Business hours are longer than most companies. Health benefits could use some work. Senior management seems to overvalue quantity of work (time in office), rather than quality.
Advice to Management
Trust your employees to make good decisions and focus on higher level goals. At least entertain some contemporary benefits like summer hours, a 4 day work week, etc.
I applied online. I interviewed at TicketNetwork.
TicketNetwork = UNPROFESSIONAL.
Warning: Prospect with this company at your own risk
Have you ever had that "butterflies-in-stomach" feeling concerning a job interview that signals warnings to you NOT to consider that particular position because you might regret it? Well...learn to LISTEN to those signals. As soon as I walked in the first time and noticed the demeanor of observed staff members, I was concerned. Nevertheless I went through the process. I was asked to complete extra tasks above and beyond which should have warranted a consulting fee. I sat well over several hours during the interview process, and not even once did they offer any morsel of the famous "free food" so many have mentioned here on Glassdoor. Even a cookie would have sufficed, for Pete's Sake. Twice the HR department failed to communicate in a proper, timely fashion to the candidate, and twice, promises made concerning simple, courteous communication were, in fact, broken.
There's a valuable lesson that I recently learned from a well-known career expert: when those "butterfly signals" tell you that a certain work environment is not as it seems, BELIEVE what those signals are telling you. I don't care HOW much "free food" is offered to workers-only; professional courtesy goes a long, long way. Candidates will have to do their own footwork with this company, in order to get a straight answer.
It is true; people indeed have ways of showing you who they really are.
