I have been working at 1105 Media full-time (More than a year)

Pros

- Not afraid to try new strategic directions based on brand/industry - not a "one size fits all" for product strategy
 - Senior Management becoming more transparent/offering more info after employee requests to do so
 - Great PTO
 - Incredibly responsive IT department
 - Fantastic manager

Cons

- Salary raises/bonuses are hard to come by unless you give a portion of your soul and 60+ hours/week to your position
 - Sometimes you feel like a jack of all trades, master of none with how many hats need to be worn due to small team sizes

Advice to Management

Give more info as to why/why not a raise will happen if an employee has been there for more than 2 years without an increase.

    I worked at 1105 Media full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Great PTO (15 days, plus one week off at Xmas and Thanksgiving)
    - Hard-working people

    Cons

    - Management obviously sees employees as expendable and will happily let people go for non-reasons, yet refuse to clean house when there are bad eggs that NEED to go.
    - No raises (newly launched evaluations are a joke) - people are underpaid and unhappy.
    - Some departments have extremely high turnover, which makes others nervous.
    - HR is inept.

    Advice to Management

    Give raises, show appreciation for your people, and invest more money into your employees instead of just acquiring other entities. ("You won't get a raise, but look at these new publications we just bought!") Also put managers in place who actually do their jobs. When a few bad employees ruin morale for many others, something needs to be done.

    I worked at 1105 Media full-time

    Pros

    - 15 days PTO + all federal holidays + 1 week for thanksgiving + 1 week for christmas = amazing!
    - and some employees are great/fun to work with
    ^^ literally, those are the ONLY pros

    Cons

    - POLITICS.
    - so many secrets within the hire management
    - you feel as though you're doing great but you will never be recognized and/or will be ignored [constantly] by hire managers
    - you will never [I MEAN NEVER] get a salary raise here. you can be here for 2/3 years and your salary will stay the same.....
    - holiday party: doesn't exist
    - bonuses: this company doesn't even know what bonuses are because they never give them
    - hire management will always say 'oh, we can't afford to give you a raise' or 'we can't afford a holiday party' ...
     - they'll expect you to work long hours, don't. stick to your 9 -5 and then once 5 pm rolls around call it a day.

    Advice to Management

    - enforce reviews every 6 months - I had to ask for mine
    - give raises to those who deserve it
    - more company events, there are so many people who work at the company for 4/5 months that do not know each other
