Work-Life Balance

A lot of overtime is available- work/life can be an obstacle.

What I dislike about the company

I don’t know where to begin! The break room was half the size of a football field, with pool tables, lounge chairs, a swing PS3 with guitar hero, treadmills and a lot of other things.... 8 different vending machines with food and beverages that take credit and Apple Pay! Your building stages for Rock Stars and Cirque de Solé... I built a stage for Madonna, for Beyoncé and slew of others... This place is fantastic!

Company Culture

The people one works with are great. However, the management culture is one of complete disregard for employees' well-being, job satisfaction, or access to the information needed to work to the best of their ability.

Support from management

Depends on the individual and the level at which they work. Individual supervisors can be highly supportive, but the upper management is poor at communication and unconcerned with how decisions flow down to the employees.

Internal Communication

Often major changes to projects designs, company organization, job descriptions, and work flow will be made without ever communicating the fact that they are being made (much less, what the details are) to the employees who are or will be affected.

Gender Equality

Hiring does not appear to be diverse, but at least everyone who does get hired seems to be treated similarly (i.e. poorly).

Attitude towards older colleagues

It's a mixed bag - Tait seems disinclined to hire older workers as new hires for the most part, but has a deep tradition with and love for the older employees who have been there from near the founding of the company (basically, the owner's contemporaries).

Career Development

Tait doesn't really develop employees - it's a sink-or-swim environment with high turnover as employees are routinely either burned out or replaced by new hires.

Overall compensation for your work

Pay is low, especially relative to the hours demanded. There is no profit-sharing or bonus system. Health benefits are decent, though.

Work-Life Balance

Tait routinely demands long stretches of 12 hour days and weekend work from its salaried employees, with no additional compensation nor respect given for level of commitment.

Company Image

It's rock n roll and pop spectacle - people will see your work in high profile environments, and much of what you work on has a memorable coolness factor that will stick out to other potential employers.

Job Security

Random reorganizations are the order of the day, including eliminating jobs and redefining job responsibilities in such a way as to eliminate the employees currently doing them. Tait does not offer to retrain employees whose jobs have been thus redefined or eliminated - they simply usher them out the door.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Start caring about employees.

What I like about the company

The people I worked with were the best co-workers I've ever had.

What I dislike about the company

The complete lack of work-life balance, which is a symptom of a general disregard for employees altogether.
