    I worked at Core Digital Media full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Pros: Really not many pro’s other than the regular office write-offs that most millennial focused companies offer to include: - Free breakfast on Friday's (although these are disappearing fast) - The office is nice and modern - Regular onsite training with free lunches

    Cons

    Factory Style Time Management Practices in Tech: Non Transparent vacation policy. Hours worked counted and tracked by HR and management to gauge loyalty, often leads to technology worker’s sticking around to late in the night as fear based practices of job security remain. One particular instance I will never forget is the great fires of 2017 and how the 405 was barely passable from the SFV. My manager, who seemed...

    Advice to Management

There are technical subject matter technical experts fully focused on scheduling, instead of solving problems or doing the work. This should not be overlooked. In my opinion, there are vast amounts of occurrences with hoarding of information and silo mentality....

    Pros

    Excellent pay and benefits. Plenty of growth opportunity. Senior management guides the company very well.

    Cons

    Horseplay galore. Worthless fraternizing HR. Personality and perception trump performance. Malignant narcissism will get you to middle management.

To name a few things I really love about the company: *Management is very...
