I have been working at iMedia part-time (More than a year)
Very laid back company. The other employees are smart and great to work with. Joel, Chuck, and John are really great bosses. Most projects are interesting and challenging. If you need to work from home part of the time because of kids or not feeling well, they are very flexible. I dont think anybody would care if you went in your PJs as long as you produced quality work. Great opportunities for advancement within if they see you are hard working and passionate about programming. We do fun company outings (picnics, Christmas party), and iMedia is very charitable. They help out a number of non-profits throughout the year. Recently, we all went to wal-mart and piled three shopping carts with clothes, toys, and games to help a family in need for the holidays. I really love working there, and they seem to be growing rapidly.
It would be nice if they did more phone app and/or game development
Advice to Management
Management is so wonderful. Don't change a thing!
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at iMedia in April 2010.
I was first contacted by a headhunter for the position. I met with the Director of IT and one of the Senior Software Developers. It was one of the more pleasant interview experiences I've had in quite a while. Both guys were intelligent, competent and personable. There wasn't a lot of ego in the room. The interview questions were insightful, they focused more on the big picture, very conceptual in nature.
All-in-all, one of the more positive interview experiences I've had in my career. They seem like good people to work with.
