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

    Pros

    When I heard that Futuri's core values were speed, passion, proactivity, and trust, I knew I wanted to work here. Those things are very important to me. I'm so happy I joined the team.

    The technology Futuri creates is really innovative and used in so many creative ways by our clients (mostly radio, which I love) to create real positive results. I love that we really care about our clients and help them grow their businesses, as opposed to just selling them software and calling it a day once the contract is signed.

    My colleagues are all really great at what they do and want to win. Everyone is held to a high level of personal accountability, which I like because I hold myself to a high standard, so it can be frustrating when the guy across from you phones it in. I've had jobs like that elsewhere. This isn't a place like that.

    My manager is easy to talk to and regularly asks for my feedback. The benefits are good and I'm compensated fairly. I like the people I work with and we have fun events inside and outside the office, like chili cook-offs.

    Daniel Anstandig, the CEO, is incredible, and regularly takes the time to talk to the team and fill us in on growth, challenges, and the management team's vision. I feel like he's really transparent (in a good way), and as someone who takes pride in the work I do, I like knowing what's going on with the company and feeling like I'm a part of our future.

    Cons

    Over the past few years, Futuri has grown incredibly fast, and there have been growing pains along the way, mainly related to internal communication. It's not a major con for me because Futuri has been proactively addressing these things over the past few months. And honestly, I would have expected more growing pains at this rate of growth.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing, and make sure to stick to those core values of speed, passion, proactivity, and trust as we grow.

    Advice to Management

    Strong benefits, heavy investment in technology, the company felt like they could see a strong future both in technology for radio and TV stations. Good place to work to learn the field and try networking with others in the same field. This company allows you to pursue new thoughts and encourages creative thinking.

    Pros

    I really love how Futuri Media values the work-life balance. I have seen the company grow and continue to recruit experts to the team. Also, Futuri Media treats their employees so exceptional like their own family. The management team is simple, honest and highly approachable. Even the support among the team members makes it easy to work together as one team.

    People in the company are very helpful.
    Great company to work with great team support.

    I have been working at Futuri Media full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Futuri Media has been a great place to work and grow a career. I love coming to work where I know that everyone on the team contributes and gives it their all. It's a place where you can shine. I've been here for a few years, in a few different roles, and every day I feel like I learn more about the business, our clients, and my team members. They take time to learn your strengths and give you opportunities to really lean into them.

    Cons

    Sometimes there are long hours needed, but it's never just on one person's shoulders. People work as a team to get things done.

    I worked at Futuri Media full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Pay was above average for the job I was asked to do. Average for the job I expected I would be doing.

    Cons

    You are expected to be available 24/7. People get mad if you don't get back to them at 4am. There is neither the staff or infrastructure to support a growing client base.

    The company's products, while cool are always broken. The people that "sell" them often tell potential and new customers the products will do things they can't.

    There is no or terrible communication between departments. There is infighting between departments and management doesn't seem to care.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the people on the front lines of your business. You are hemorrhaging talent. Hire enough people to support your products.

    You need an HR department. And you need to keep people around longer than a year.
