      A Lean, Tight Ship

      Dec 9, 2016 - Product Manager in Cumberland, RI

      Pros

      InMusic has very little bureaucracy in its flat corporate structure. A product manager can go directly to the owner/CEO or the VP of Sales with ideas or questions and get feedback almost instantaneously. Executive management is engaged, savvy and has a keen sense about product features, industrial design and marketing messaging. As a result of the corporate structure and engaged executive management, complex products make it to market quickly and market disruptive impact is consistently achieved. At inMusic, you always know where your idea stands, what direction to take and what's expected of you. There's a deep corporate culture of "get it done" that all successful employees understand. When a deliverable needs expediting, it gets expedited without multiple requests or constant babysitting. InMusic's Industrial Design and Graphic departments are world class. The products they design and the marketing materials they churn out are among the best in the industry. They're also inspiring, respectful and fun to work with. InMusic's engineers are technically excellent and solid collaborators. Product managers have direct relationships with the engineers developing their products and engage daily. There's a strong sense of mutual respect. InMusic's tech specialists are the best in the business. They're knowledgeable, communicative wizards with positive, humble attitudes. I really enjoyed working with this group. InMusic was a great company to work for and I was sad to leave.

      Cons

      Rhode Island isn't for everyone and to be a truly successful product manager (of physical products), being on-site is extremely important. There's little to no training involved in product management. You're expected to figure out how to do what needs to be done. This was fine for me, but for some, this might pose a challenge. The facilities aren't glamorous. This is not a big deal, but an employee shower would be a nice improvement. The expense report policy is a little dated and the process is fairly time consuming. It could use a revamp.

      Over-promise and horribly under-deliver

      Pros

      There are some really smart and talented people working for this company. The corporate office is in a nice location.

      Cons

      Absolutely everything is a crisis. There are no written procedures for nearly anything. There is little-to-no documentation or training for most positions. Everything is fly by the seat of your pants and every man for himself. Management makes an art form of over-hyping and over-promising and grossly under-delivering in nearly all facets of the business. Pay is abysmal compared to other similar companies. Morale is very low.

      Good People and cool gear

      Pros

      If you are into music or music production this is definitely an exciting place to be. You get to work with some fun gear. The people are all really great too. The majority of people seem to get along.

      Cons

      Unfortunately there is very little planing which makes for extremely frustration scheduled. Everything is always a crisis. Management doesn't know how to manage projects. There is little to no teamwork. It's mostly every man for himself.

      Unhealthy Work Environment - Do Not Work Here

      Jul 5, 2016 -

      Pros

      There isn't much other than you work with some passionate and creative employees at the lower levels.

      Cons

      inMusic seems to thrive on making their employees feel like they're constantly about to be fired and justifying it as "motivation". Turnover is very high at this company with many employees leaving or mysteriously being let go, and many of the employees are under paid for what they do compared to competitive market rates. Promotions that I've seen come in the form of added responsibility with little to no pay increase. I've seen a number of employees put into positions where they're essentially "set up for failure" on a project that doesn't have enough time or resources appropriately devoted, but upper management doesn't seem to care. It's like there's a mysterious hand at work (aka the CEO) that doesn't understand the fine details of what goes into making a good product, and everyone must conform to his timelines and expectations. As a result, everything seems rushed and communication is terrible with everything seeming as though it's in a crisis. The overall work environment is pretty unpleasant as a result of all of these things. Maybe if you've never worked at another company you would accept all these problems more easily and view the environment as "challenging but rewarding for the hard worker", but having worked at better companies previously I find the environment here to be borderline abusive. Maybe it could all be justified better if employees were paid decently and rewarded appropriately, but those things aren't true. Also something I need to add is that female employees have to sometimes take time out of their day to work the front desk. This is sexist and insulting as that is not what these people are hired to do and implies that their time is less valuable than the men who work at this company.
