    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.

    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 10 years)

    Pros

    Benefits were great, salary was great, work environment was great, people were great. Treated us to occasional employee days & fun things to do.

    Cons

    When I first started, it was more low-key on a first person basis (personable) and then the company got little bit bigger, so it got a little bit more "corporate", but it was still great.

    Advice to Management

    Try to get back to the personal basis again, it makes it feel more like home.
