    I worked at Evox Images full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I worked in a department that had a primary focus on creating custom work or "build to order" direct to client or through their agencies. This is a company that had a licensing business model, so allowing for a custom content department was a bit of a battle, but also an incredible opportunity to be a part of. My contributions in the beginning were run under a microscope by a driven CEO...he will hold you accountable....

    See above novel and decide for yourself.

    Advice to Management

    Provide transparency to company development and changes. The townhall meetings are great to support that. Allow the people that work there to know they have a voice and it will allow for the perspective I know you have, but also confirm that everyone is being heard.

    Pros

    Evox tends to respect work / life balance. Evening and weekend work is not encouraged. People are sincere and kind. The work is interesting.

    Cons

    Not a lot of lunch options in the area. Sometimes competing projects require juggling of priorities.

    I have been working at Evox Images full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Doing exciting Industry leading work - Great work / life balance by far one of the least stressful atmospheres I've had the pleasure of working in . - Large variety of projects going on at once it's actually pretty difficult to stagnate too much in an environment where something new is being developed, researched, or explored on any given day .

    Cons

    - Development roadmaps and schedules fluctuate sporadically at times . Sometimes a project is an immediate priority , then falls on the backburner until an immediate resurged interest pops up . - It can be frustrating communicating the technical possibilities of vaguely defined projects with management sometimes. Sometimes questions asked are similar to " How long is a piece of string ?" . Without project details...

    Advice to Management

    - Most management has a very shallow understanding of technology and the actual work that goes into producing some of the VR / AR and tech products. My biggest suggestion is perhaps exposing them to what that process looks like and all the pieces involved. - I am actually really appreciative of the studios stability which is generally a rare word to here within the tech industry from any company that's not...

    I have been working at Evox Images full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Evox is a relaxed and fun work environment, hours are flexible, projects are challenging and the employees are a great group of people. Pay is around market value, benefits are decent. Nice location & modern equipment that's provided to work on. Some of the bleeding edge tech projects are really fun and exciting to be a part of. There is always room to learn new skills and technologies here.

    Cons

    Vacation / sick time could be more generous and the lack of a matching 401k is disappointing. The bonus program is not well managed and is more of a frustration than a benefit.

    Advice to Management

    Focus and streamline products and workflows, get the bonus program under control, be more open and communicative with your employees on a regular basis.

    I worked at Evox Images

    Pros

    The company has an amazing work/life balance. With rare exception, you don't have to work long hours or take work home, and getting time off is a breeze. Outside of management, the people are some of the kindest, most hard working folks I've ever had the pleasure of knowing.

    Cons

    First, most, if not all of the five star reviews are lies. The company actively puts pressure on employees to post good reviews to counter the honest (bad) ones. In fact, you can almost certainly bet that one particular senior exec is writing most of them. That said, this company is a school case study in how NOT to run a successful business. From the manic, almost pathological whims and direction changes that are...

    Pros

    A lot of talent and potential. Oppurtunity to move up on the job title list fast

    Cons

    Dont be fooled. They hand out job titles that is only that, a couple of words. Half of management at the least have probably never managed before and they arent gaining experience at evox. Sales team dont sell anything, they wont even pick up a phone when it rings. The h.r. deptartment have no business being in h.r. They definately dont know Californias laws and id bet money they lead evox to court any time now. Its...
