      Great people, horrible management

      Pros

      Hardworking, educated, and experienced staff makes this company the success it is.

      Cons

      HR / upper management is inexperienced, sneaky, and demotivating. HR has too much control and not enough training or experience.

      No. You can do better than this company. Don't do it.

      Pros

      Get to work with fun, cutting edge products, but they prey on your excitement to treat you as a slave.

      Cons

      Everything else. Cut throat atmosphere. "Do it or you're gone" mentality. "Expect to do more for less" is an exact quote from upper management. Borderline (and sometimes blatant) sexual harassment daily. If you currently work here, you soon won't. Nobody is going to retire there. Might as well get your resume ready and join a team that doesn't think of you as temporary.

      Unhealthy Work Environment - Do Not Work Here

      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.

      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.

      Big ego? Like chaos? This is the company for you.

      Pros

      A handful of good co-workers. The occasional 'free-lunch'. Once every few years an interesting piece of gear makes its way through the gauntlet and gets to market.

      Cons

      Terrible management. I repeat... terrible management. There are no formal processes for doing anything. All activity seems to be organized ad-hoc using email. Working between departments is much more difficult than it has to be. Collaborating can be an immense struggle. You will be used in some internal political power-play. There are huge imbalances when it comes to how space and resources are shared. The Rhode Island office is far too small for the amount of people working there. Lots of micromanagement that leads to hostility and lots of wasted time. Well-liked by upper management but still incompetent people are managing projects that are completely out of their depth. Lots of failed musicians with big egos. Huge egos in fact. Be prepared for power-tripping, middle-aged men that have to announce their presence to everyone in earshot by speak-shouting wherever they go. Smart people leave once they realize the games that have to be played to advance their career. I don't know how this company continues to make money. Worst company I've ever worked for.
