    I worked at Triton Digital full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The employees are like family for the most part. The atmosphere in the Atlanta office is laid back and you can wear whatever you want. The product set has potential if given more resources.

    Cons

    The company has downsized twice in less than 2 years. There are hardly any employees trying to service thousands of client contacts. With that said, I wish nothing but the best for most of them.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees what they deserve and quit turning a once amazing company into a cliche.

    Pros

    Great co-workers and a very flexible work schedule. Directors work well with their managers and so forth.

    Cons

    C-suite leadership is horrific; they only care about the bottom dollar.
    No vision as to where to take the product.
    All good employees left there are either miserable or over worked due to inept leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Fire all of upper management and start over. Tell the CEO to care about his employees instead of his salary. Consolidate offices and figure out, logistically, where the product should go. Don't have your already exhausted skeleton staff do jobs they were never meant to do.

    I worked at Triton Digital full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flex hours, good location (for me personally anyway), holiday party was always great, intelligent peers (until they stopped giving cognitive tests in interviews), and I had a lot of great coworkers who if it weren't for them and the personal friendships built I would have left long before I did.

    Cons

    Horrible product management (the last good one JUST left), insecure job due to owners caring about dollars but not people, too much division between departments (even in same city), incompetent managers and employees at all levels who were either acquired into their jobs or hired by a buddy (and likely skipped that afore mentioned cognitive test) when they truly have no business working there, IT pay scale for Atlanta is low. The company was purchased by a venture capital firm last year and they laid off a ton of great people because it was 100% a dollars thing, so it appears now that Triton is truly just a number to be sold again one day for a profit. Thus the truth is none of this will be fixed anytime soon by anyone in charge - they're all just along for the ride. Sad thing is the company at its start was a wonderful place - we're talking 10 years ago before 3 name changes and the first venture purchase. Founders had their flaws like all of us do but they were wonderful people who established an amazing culture. Long gone now. The last big con is the Cincy office - seriously, complete incompetence in every way and a complete waste of space. All of them, what a joke on so many levels. None worse than the support "leader" there. And the skinners who want to be called "developers" lol, that never gets old!

    Advice to Management

    Fire incompetent managers who were never qualified for their positions to begin with and reorganize everything to get rid of so many fat/unneeded positions. Consolidate your business into a single location (either Kennesaw or Montreal) so that you can truly fix the culture and with everything under one roof. Everything including sales/marketing. Redefine the business model and slowly transition to a more secure future revenue stream.

    Pros

    Employees are great, down to earth and helpful.
    Casual atmosphere.

    Cons

    Triton Digital is a mess. Upper management has no idea what direction to take the organization and there is a lack of structure with this organization.

    Pros

    The people, the environment, culture, flexibility, opportunity to create your own destiny.

    Cons

    Digital audio is still nascent so the direction of the company has changed several times over a small amount of time. There is lack of focus and clear direction.

    Advice to Management

    provide more focus and direction to your employees

    I worked at Triton Digital full-time

    Pros

    Was brought into Triton as a part of an acquisition. Promises of helping to grow the business and help grow the services and products offered. They keep to their word on employment matters.

    Cons

    Lack of real focus on what they want to do and what markets are important. Left our department completely abandoned for several months with no direction because they didn't know what to do with us. Triton was recently acquired by a new investment firm whose sole purpose has been to flush cash out of their new investment by getting rid of employees.

    All employee reviews are done top down with little concern over what employees on the ground are seeing.

    Very little room for advancement.

    Open door policy was used to shut people out or lay them off.

    Advice to Management

    Improve upward communication.
    Allow employees easy access to decision makers.

    Pros

    Great people and office culture. Everyone is a blast to work with and they're all supportive of one another. True team players.

    Cons

    Unless you're one of the chosen few, there's very little opportunity to move up. Most "moves" are simply lateral shifts in responsibilities with no title change or increase in pay. As a loyal employee who has put in many years with the company, this is very frustrating. Also, there have been massive layoffs twice in less than 2 years--and they wonder why morale is low..

    Advice to Management

    To the CEO, learn the names of your employees. Take a real interest in them instead of only showing up to the office to deliver bad news. To local management, really consider offering promotions to those people who have been working hard for you without complaint. The pay at Triton is already significantly lower than most comprable companies in the area, so give your talent a reason to stay on board.

    Pros

    Management is incompetent so you can do what you want and no one notices

    Cons

    Dumb company that provides services to radio stations which are all cash strapped and don't want to pay premium prices for anything. Horribly bad business models and horribly bad senior management. I don't think the CEO of the company even has a username or password to any of the products. Hilarious.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a product for a market that has money to spend and get management that has technology experience.

    Pros

    My managers are fantastic. Team co-workers are awesome, talented and friendly. Pay is okay. Flexibility when needed.

    Cons

    Upper management in certain location borders on incompetency. They don’t allow worker bees, the people who actually know how to get the job done, enough room to thrive. The people making the big decisions often have no idea how it all works and disregard advice from those managers who actually do know how it works. They often don't allow for appropriate time and testing on many projects resulting in angry clients and frustrated employees.

    Sales tends to not understand the products, they just say whatever it takes to make the sale and deal with the fallout later.

    You will have a harder climb up being a female.

    There is a lot of negative competition between department locations. Instead of different location teams working together there is a lot of finger pointing when things go wrong. Favorites are often played.

    Consider yourself lucky if you ever get a pay increase above cost of living.

    Advice to Management

    Hire management that actually know how the IT, advertising, media + radio business works. Some management is very knowledgeable and has worked in those areas for years but some of the tip top people have no business running the show.

    Invest more in your current hardworking employees. Set attainable timelines and goals instead of rushing to get a unfinished product to market. Reward those who have proven themselves hardworking and loyal.

    There's so much potential for this company if it would just open it's eyes and see the ineptitude in some of it's decision makers.

    Listen to your employees because they are the experts.
