I have been working at Disc Makers full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Casual dress, free water & coffee.

Cons

Management is cutting good people and leaving incompetent around. The place is getting more empty every month and it is very depressing. Not much on the horizon even though management tries to paint a sort of bright picture. Their technology is a dying one so they are moving to online & digital sales to keep them afloat. They will cut more just to ensure the board makes money.

Advice to Management

Spend less time reading staff email to see who is talking about ill about your company and make things better for those still working there.

    I worked at Disc Makers full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Benefits were good; health insurance, vision, dental, 401(k), free bagels in the morning, free coffee & cocoa all day/night, 25-cent sodas. Doing work for some of your favorite musicians is always a plus.

    Cons

    Optical media is in its twilight, cutbacks and layoffs are commonplace. Employee morale is nothing like it used to be.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize the value of the employees. Bring back Team Building events. Understand that low morale is no good for any company. The CEO could stand to walk around the facility, getting his hands dirty and get feedback personally from the employees, as the Owner used to do.
