    I worked at Viamedia full-time

    Pros

    Good work/life balance. Tremendous support staff and leaders. Strong culture. Compassionate leaders who care and do the right thing.

    Cons

    The media landscape is changing quickly. Viamedia recognizes that and adapts to what customers need. With that, the learning curve on newer tactics is different than tv. If you like to learn and grow your knowledge and seek that out, this is a good place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Keep evolving in terms of product offerings and staff that is excited to embrace that.

    Pros

    They have some good digital products for you to market.

    Cons

    There are plenty. For the most part they consider training, showing you a Power Point presentation. The majority of managers have no idea how to build a market, they just push "paper". If you're going to succeed with Viamedia, it's all on you.

    Advice to Management

    Hire some leaders as managers who will fire up the markets, instead of firing the people at the market levels.

    I have been working at Viamedia full-time

    Pros

    Direct supervisor is great but she is not supported and her hands are tied.

    Cons

    Don't support their staff, it's all about the managers. Keep laying off people and expecting the ones left to take up the slack. Over worked and under appreciated and under paid while the senior managers keep getting bonuses and raises

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your employees and the rest fall into place.

    Pros

    Some of the people that work there are really great people - and it is a fairly laid-back environment, as well as flexible.

    Cons

    The pay is the biggest one I've heard from fellow co-workers, and I agree. And no 401K match. The company is making lots of money, at least they say they are, and the upper management are making great money. However, they pay so little that it is resulting in turnover - and they are losing great employees.

    Advice to Management

    Train new employees better. Start trying to do more to keep the good employees there, and providing lunch every other week for the entire company is nice - but in the end employees would rather see some of that added to their paychecks or 401K. Cut back on all of the events and lunches some and start giving better bonuses and putting it towards something that is actually beneficial to the employees.

    I worked at Viamedia full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I started with the company in 2007 and it was fairly small but growing and advancing at a very fast rate. We were located in Troy and our headquarters was based out of Kentucky. I always felt very connected to the staff in Kentucky and they were all very supportive.

    Cons

    Unfortunately the company decided to close the three offices they opened in Michigan and have expanded in other markets.

    Advice to Management

    I would advise Management to continue to grow their talent from the inside and to look and listen to the people that run and operate the business on the local levels.
