Pros

Working alongside some of the most intelligent people in the industry
Great working environment - very relaxed, low stress environment
Fast paced work environment - every new project is helping advance the company right away, and you can see how your work is helping immediately.
Management is friendly and easy to approach, more of a team leader environment, than an over-your-shoulder boss.
Learn valuable skills and insight into a rapidly growing industry
Because it's a rapidly growing company, there are a lot of promotions- and most are internal.

Cons

Working with such motivated and intelligent people can be a bit intimidating if you aren't a driven individual.

For some, working in a fast-paced environment might not be ideal. There's no room for slacking.

It can take a while to get used to 8 hours in front of a computer screen. (Fortunately, there's a break room with snacks, and you're free to take breaks as you need them- as long as you get your work done!)

Bring a sweater or jacket.

Advice to Management

Continue everything you are doing now, AM is the best company I've worked for.

    Pros

    There are a lot of very smart people working at Announce Media and this makes it a great place to work if you enjoy learning and being challenged.

    The work is challenging and once you have proved yourself, and there is reasonable opportunity to move to grow in your position and projects.

    Add to this all the other perks and this has to be one of the best companies in the industry.

    Cons

    The baseline expectations are very high, so this is not the kind of company for someone who wants to simply coast and relax.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.
