Support from management

Leadership generally decides for themselves how to resolve conflicts, rarely involve the employee

Career Development

On the fly training, and no real sense of a development structure. In other words, you're stuck in the position you're in

Overall compensation for your work

No overtime pay; health benefits are poor; the wage for my position was destitute compared to the market average.

Work-Life Balance

Oftentimes to get the assignment done requires later hours, but there is no compensation or overtime pay

Company Image

Employees are proud of their finished products, but are not fond of the journey to get there

Job Security

Many of my former co-workers were let go for seemingly unknown reasons and without explanation.

Handicapped Accessibility

Office is two stories, but there is no elevator, only stairs

Challenging Work

People are pleased with the finished product, but there's rarely time for celebration or feeling accomplished

Suggestions for improvement

  • While the product has proven to be successful and the feedback from customers can be uplifting, the struggle to balance work and life was intense. Something needs to change for the wellness of their employees: either hire more people to spread the load, or reduce the amount of products you put out. Training in managing employees would also be a plus, especially for positions that are new to the company structure, just so there's no confusion over the hierarchy or responsibilities.

What I like about the company

ZCode Media's products were great tools for the communities they served. We helped make a lot of people happy with the publicity through the products. Their office was comfortable (i.e. desks, chairs, air conditioning, equipment provided) and the coworkers could mingle openly.

What I dislike about the company

Unfortunately, that same sentiment does not always extend to their employees. At the time I was there, the company was very ambitious about it's growth, but didn't have the manpower to support their goals. This resulted in long hours of unpaid work, and being criticized for honest mistakes. Employees who could not "keep up" were let go without opportunities for further training or even without explanation. Leadership would compare employees against each other (i.e. "So and so can do it, why can't you?") which makes for a very needlessly stressful environment. The pay is also WAY below a livable wage for the San Diego area.
