Company doesn't care of its employees
Operations Support (Former Employee) –  New York, NY18 March 2019
The company went downhill once they were bought out by Vista, and they started caring more about appearing to be profitable instead of investing in their employees. Multiple cuts have brought down morale and put additional pressure on remaining staff. Management doesn't have a clue to how their people actually work and make gross assumptions and has lied to their employees. Pay and benefits are subpar.

A services company in a products wrappers
Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee) –  Pune , India17 June 2018
Work is not that great . It gets monotonous after 6-7 months. people around you are always helpful and they are very highly experienced in their domains. You are not trusted with anything very easily and higher management seems to trust only those people who are there in the company for more than 30 years(even when they are wrong , no one will point out their mistakes.). From very higher level management to very low level, every ones behaves like it is service based company. Overall experience not that great
Pros
good salary structure, Great work life balance, leave policy very good
Cons
Feels like service based company. Nothing to learn and grow in technical and personal aspect.

Fun, supportive place to work
Network Support Specialist (Current Employee) –  Chicago, IL3 June 2018
At Mediaocean, you feel supported from day 1. The environment is truly incredible, very friendly and helpful coworkers. Great, work-life balance. There is free lunch at least once a week on average and free bagels or hot breakfast catered every Wednesday. Opportunity to work from home when necessary is a great bonus. The only con is that the starting salary isn't great, but they can be generous with raises.
Pros
Free lunches, Unlimited PTO
Cons
Low Starting Salary

Job Very Unstable
MAINFRAME OPERATOR (Former Employee) –  Manhattan, NY2 May 2018
You never knew if or when you were going to be let go. Work schedule was good, but senior management always lies to your face. Good holiday party but nothing in a way of saying good job.
Pros
Work / life balance
Cons
Senior Management, company in general

Serious Management Issues
UI Architect (Former Employee) –  New York, NY28 March 2018
For a company this size, the tendency towards micro-management from the topmost levels and a failing to understand how to motivate employees and instill team work has led to a 'scared squirrel' culture. Developers hide and run more than contribute and give their opinions. This in turn leads to more micro-management and wondering why senior management has to dictate every detail themselves.

It was a good place to work
Senior Developer (Former Employee) –  Hasbrouck Heights, NJ3 March 2018
It was a very good place to work. After being purchased by Venture Equities, the work climate changed dramatically and things went down hill. Very disappointed.

Has seen better days
Senior Developer (Former Employee) –  New Jersey10 January 2018
Upper management has no direction but is desperate to improve cash flow. Ignoring core competencies to try for Hail Mary business ideas. More interested in cost cutting than in maintaining and developing existing applications.
Pros
Good location in NYC
Cons
Tense, stressful atmosphere

3 day work made it easy.
MAINFRAME OPERATOR (Former Employee) –  Manhattan, NY9 January 2018
A typical day at work was quiet, at my position there was no room for growth, management has been trying to downsize . The workplace has been stressed because of the recent layoffs. The hardest part of the job is staying loyal and dedicated .
Pros
Health Benefits, 401K
Cons
Layoffs, Out Sourcing

Could be a much better place to work
Support Specialist III (Current Employee) –  Nashville, TN18 October 2017
The company atmosphere is not the same in all of the offices. The only place where the atmosphere is fun is in the New York office. Outside of New York the offices are like islands.

They company talks a lot about advancement, but that only appears to happen if you work in the New York office.

It appears that the company doesn't want people to move forward, offer ideas, or suggestions, which contradicts their constant mentioning of the company slogan of "Grow our People."

It could be a much better place to work for if they practiced what they preached.
Pros
Unlimited PTO
Cons
Poor salary, some managers do not care about an employee's professional growth. No challenges.

No work hours flexibility
Sr. Automation Engineer (Current Employee) –  Pune, Maharashtra7 October 2017
Good salary, good people. Too much work and no work hours flexibility. Implementing new ideas is secondary and no guaranty of getting time for that. Work is so much planned and bound you will hardly get time to breadth or else you will have to go on leaves to relax.
Pros
Good salary, good people.
Cons
Too much work and no work hours flexibility.

Hard to say under new management
VP of Data Services (Former Employee) –  Chicago, IL3 February 2017
During startup, it was great as people are close and work hard towards best results. Not much politics and good relationship. It's difficult after company expands and have multiple offices around global.
