  1. "Privately Funded but Utterly Mis-managed"

    Pros

    Casual (albeit boring) work environment, seemingly limitless sick days, easy to take time off, laid-back staff. Great office location in the Loop.

    Cons

    While the writing staff is talented, you are given the impression that everyone working for the company is mostly looking out for their own careers. For a small office, they are very slow to adopt to new technology and projects stagnant for years at a time due to lack of project management and/or technically capable staff. Departments are isolated and an unnecessary level of secrecy dictate all company policies and decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Get feedback! The company has lost it's best staff due to lack of respect and feedback from management and Sr. staff. Productive employees are ignored while management lavishes itself with praise at any given opportunity, ignoring any attempts to create a dialogue between management and staff.


  2. "Inept management driven by ego"

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at in3media full-time

    Pros

    It was extremely laid back (and most days the office was empty). Sick days were plentiful because a lack of accountability and structure allowed staff to pretty much do as they please. We had a nice, well-stocked fridge for a while (free)

    Cons

    Management is heavy-handed and frequently misdirected. The CEO would frequently weigh in heavily on small decisions and would often gloat about technical achievements or their own brilliant strategy when nothing had actually been accomplished. Sales staff would cycle through quickly, often making up their own prices to capitalize on commission before mysteriously departing, never to be heard from again. It was not uncommon with staff to quickly depart - some of those who attempted to leave amicably were punished or "fired" despite giving notice. Talent goes unnoticed and unrecognized while management is quick to take credit, regardless of what was or wasn't accomplished.

    Advice to Management

    Step back from management and hire someone to run the business properly. Just because you have seemingly unlimited private funding does not mean your (frequently terrible) business decisions don't have consequences.
