      Pros

      Great people to work with, awesome gear and freedom to be creative is definitely a plus. Lots of company perks and a relaxed atmosphere make it an amazing place where creativity can flow.

      Cons

      None that I can come up with at this moment. Very satisfied with the work environment.

      Pros

      Great people, Free lunch on Fridays (in the summer), free coffee in the breakroom, ability to grow fast if you work hard. Saturday and Sundays off Offered some pretty awesome benefits like 401k, Healthcare, etc. Prize giveaways

      Cons

      They have you answer calls and emails at the same time while expecting you to answer emails in an unrealistic turnaround time. You have no time to answer your emails because you constantly are on the phone. As if that's not enough, you then get tasked to build FAQ's and guides for the website as you have to answer phone calls and emails. They expect you to use your overtime to get this work done. The work/life balance is terrible. You don't get paid enough to do all of this work. The raises are terrible.

      Crisis Management from the top down

      Pros

      There are some great people from Sr. Management down. The products are cool for the most part and it's an exciting industry to be a part of. It was a good stepping stone and I learned a lot.

      Cons

      Executive management is a nightmare to deal with. They will smile to your face, but throw you under the bus in an instant. The Marketing team is mismanaged and has little understanding of E-Commerce. Additionally, they do not hire qualified people to get the job done. They will hire in Jr. developers and expect Sr. developer results. This results in lackadaisical web launches, marketing campaigns and no support to any sort of E-Commerce initiatives. I cannot tell you how frustrating it is to have someone higher on the hierarchy than you that is so incompetent. The problem is, when people gain the trust of the CEO, they can basically skirt around issues and blame people lower in the pecking order for their own faults. Eventually, that catches up to them, but it takes time. Then, they will hire in someone else that incompetent. InMusic is literally the worst and least professional job I have ever had. They want you to be fearful of losing your job at all times. It's the culture they strive for. I hated every single day that I had to go there. All of the products are cheaply made in China so the quality isn't all that great.

      Pros

      Great people to work with. The day to day working environment is nice at the Somerville office. The products are inspiring and fun to work on.

      Cons

      Communication with HR and upper management is horrendous. There is an underlying tone of mistrust. There is a fairly high turnover rate, but that's not surprising.

      Pros

      Free coffee, travel opportunities, the company of musicians,some great people intermixed with the riffraff, a neat key pass to get in the door, a sweet receptionist.

      Cons

      Abandon hope, all ye who enter here, for this be a corporate wasteland of psychopaths, misfits and all manner of lost souls duped by the cachet of erstwhile respectable audio brands. I like, hundreds of others, am among the discarded outcasts of a massive, well-oiled revolving door known as inMusic brands. This is a denizen of poor, lost music professionals suckered into the promise of creative fulfillment and professional mobility. Perhaps you will find a comfortable niche and carve out a nice opportunity for yourself. But I wouldn’t bank on it. Far more likely the only thing you'll be carving out is your own professional dignity.

      Pros

      Great people at some levels in the company. Exciting products. Fast paced. Creative. Respected leader in music business.

      Cons

      Company work ethic promotes burnout and back stabbing. High rate of turnover due to the work load and management style. "Drink the cool-aid" is a internal company slogan.

      Good Career Kickstart

      Pros

      inMusic Brands is a good place for unemployed and lost music technology graduates who need some hard skills and something of value on their resume. There is a lot of challenging work and responsibility starting from day one. The teams tend to be tight and as a result a more senior colleague will always be there to mentor and guide you when you are out of your depth. The organisation and the work still tend to be organic, and a person can have a large impact on the process and on the products. Even though there is a hierarchy, the company feels very horizontal. People from the decision-making layer frequently communicate with people in the trenches. The work-life balance is great. People come early/stay late extremely rarely. Very laid-back, casual, open and jovial work atmosphere.

      Cons

      The benefits are almost non-existent and the salary is depressingly low when compared to the same positions in other industries. When a piece of kit is needed, a very big case needs to be made about it and it takes ages for it to get approved as an expense. Since it is so hard, some people give up and buy things from their own pocket just to get the job done - e.g. USB sticks, cables, USB hubs, headphones, etc. There is a scary staff turnover rate in the entry-level positions. Responsibilities in those roles tend to rise exponentially faster than the salary and people lose interest. This means the recruitment process is constant and the Software QA team is almost never the same for more than 6 months. The knowledge, experience and talent is slowly but steadily leaving and it is a little demoralising.
