    I have been working at EIGHT25MEDIA full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    EIGHT25MEDIA provides you the tools to succeed and has a "start up" culture which makes your job far more enjoyable than past companies. Most places I've worked have left me feeling unappreciated and did not allow me to utilize my capabilities in the best way possible while here I am given the freedom to optimize my roles and responsibilities.

    Cons

    Some long hours involved a few times a quarter

    I worked at EIGHT25MEDIA full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    E25 has some interesting projects, however, there is not enough time and resources to get it done. As a result - 1. Developers are overworked and have to put in weekends quite often to release the build, they don't have time for R&D and just patch things around to meet minimal requirements 2. Deliveries are delayed, customers are upset and as a manager you're always in the middle of it But yeah, if you're willing...

    Cons

    Not sure where to start: 1. No culture a) once I joined I was asked to fire an employee (because it was founders' friend), no announcement happened in the company and for the others it looked like the guy just disappeared b) no team events, no helpful attitude, no performance feedback, no food, people putting blame at each other c) people just don't show up on the meetings, come unprepared or leave without saying...

    Advice to Management

    1. Do right by your employees: pay what you promise, base incentives on their merrits, not on their personal situations 2. Be more transparent with your employees & with the customers 3. Establish cultural values & make it a place where people can do the best work of their lives 4. Don't sell if you don't have the resources to deliver - it's a short term gain: developers get overworked and quit, PMs get stressed out...

    Great team, awesome CEO but the thing I love most is the amazing clients I get to work with. It's a strong diversified portfolio of clients (Fortune 500 to rapidly growing startups) which keeps things interesting.

    Cons

    Long hours but that is too be expected.

    I worked at EIGHT25MEDIA full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Pros: Great commission structure, reasonable expectations for quotas, training and support from Management was beyond my expectations, opportunities for growth were clearly road mapped from the outset.

    Cons

    Cons: Sales team lacked planning, basic dial for dollars role, high turn-over within sales team while I was there lead to lots of politics, and worry about job security

    Advice to Management

    None that would still be important. Hope they kept doing what they were doing and bringing on new clients to keep growing.

    I worked at EIGHT25MEDIA full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    - Interesting projects - Friendly project teams

    Cons

    - Delaying salary all the time - CEO + some top-level managers think that they know everything and very hard to convince them to do something meaningful. Further, they are NOT willing to execute ideas of professionals and stick into some unbefitting ideas. - At SL office its full of internal politics - No appreciation for employee work

    Advice to Management

    You hire people to get the work done so please give them the freedom to make corrective decisions. Please listen to them, they are the people who do all the hard work because their knowledge is up to date and they see the practicality of it.
