Administrative/Production (Former Employee) – Los Angeles – May 6, 2015
This place will underpay and overwork you. They expect you to do the work from the people they have fired without raising your salary.
It is now made mostly of foreign management from Argentina. At times it seems that they don't know anything, or they simply don't communicate to the rest of the company.
Recently moved to a smaller, cheaper office space. There are parts of the floor that looks like a run down cheap motel with stinky carpets. It has a "opened concept," but to tell you the truth it is awful. All departments are next to each other. You can hear and see every single thing they do. There is a lack of privacy, and you can even hear all the vulgar stuff they talk about.
Management seems to be cutting everything they can. How can a person do his or her job when you lack the tools and resources to do your work? This company is unreliable, and cannot think of a worst place to work at. Have seen great people that care let go.
As I said, management is now made up of mostly foreign citizens from Argentina and Spain that don't seem to understand the culture, can hardly speak English, and want to do things like they perhaps did in their own country.
They want you to finish the work without paying you overtime. I know of some people within some departments that stay half or full hours without getting paid for their effort.
They have a few workers in New York that are unionize which I wouldn't care, except for the fact that they get paid more, and have more benefits than non-union. It's really a mess. They get more vacation days than non-union people. more... There is a serious lack of communication between departments. Nobody knows who to talk to when there is a new project. You only find out about it one day before it launches. There are a lot of incompetent people within this company that don't seem to care about anything except for their commissions and ways to have other people do their work. Really a depressing place to work at.less
Executive Assistant (Former Employee) – New York, NY – September 7, 2013
Working at impreMedia was most certainly a pleasure. I love to be proactive in my work and impreMedia certainly kept me busy.
I assisted the VP/Sales Director and served as his right hand. I managed his calendar, scheduled meetings, created PowerPoint presentations, managed Flash reports using Excel, managed VP's expenses and reviewed all expenses submitted from subordinates for approval, reviewed commission reports before presenting them for approval, handled all travel arrangements, interviewed service companies (for example, a reliable Corporate Limousine company to provide impreMedia with transportation services), ran reports on Nexus and TNS to find data on organizations and their contacts. These tasks are just a margin of the work in which I was responsible for as the Executive Assistant of VP/Sales Director.
Great position! Kept me busy and the work was enjoyable!
My boss resigned and his replacement was in Los Angeles.

Sales (Former Employee) – Illinois – January 12, 2012
They are trying, bless them, but ImpreMedia is going downhill fast. The demand for their media products is really drying up. Newspapers are losing money and ImpreMedia's papers have been losing money by double digits for the last several years. They do not support nor reward performance. Too many ineffective people are in jobs while those who performed have been layed off, or squeezed out for dubious reasons. Hard to understand what the company is trying to achieve. There is lots of big talk about their digital products but ultimately they are little viewed and don't do enough or bring in enough money
nice atmoshphere at times, good pay, benefits are ok. products are well known, usually #1 in their respective markets
