    I worked at IZ-ON Media full-time

    Pros

    People were nice, in a fake sort of way. Day to day environment was pleasant.

    Cons

    The amount of turnover is insane. Lots of people came and went in my short tenure, and almost no one was left there 6 months after I left.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out how to retain people.

    I worked at IZ-ON Media (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    There are some great people at IZ-ON, and the company is very work/life balance friendly.

    Cons

    The combination of a parent company that never seemed to understand or value IZ-ON, and a series of missteps on the part of upper management have changed the culture and climate. the best people have moved on, and those that are left are in a perpetual state of worry over the instability of the company and ongoing layoffs. As it stands, IZ-ON is the remnant of squandered opportunity.

    Advice to Management

    Get away from Technicolor, get back to innovating rather than re-selling off the shelf components, bring quality, creative people back into the company, and avoid repeating the mistake of putting all of your eggs in one (client) basket.

    Advice to Management

    Rid your selves of Technicolor

    I worked at IZ-ON Media full-time

    Pros

    Great co-workers and a real initiative to improve working culture. The recent change in leadership has been an encouraging improvement.

    Cons

    The parent company is terrible and seemingly has set up the company to fail, despite management's efforts to turn things around. Low morale due to business challenges - people are jumping ship right and left.

    Advice to Management

    Give people incentives to stay and help improve things. And maybe - please - consider some raises as soon as you can?

    Pros

    Great family of employees- great work life balance

    Cons

    Frequent layoffs, struggling to hold on, many of the best folks have left

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the core business - there may be hope yet.

    Pros

    The best part about working at IZON was the people - extremely talented and creative. There was a real sense of comradery and collaboration.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, Technicolor killed the spirit of the company and tossed 40% of the company to the curb. What was once a fun, vibrant and innovative place to work is now just an empty shell. It's only a matter of time before the ship sinks entirely.

    Advice to Management

    Separate from Technicolor and inspire innovation. Appreciate the people that are left by offering them professional development and growth opportunities.
