Director, Key Accounts (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – July 10, 2018
Imagine offers a passionate workplace with dedicated employees driven to meet the challenges of today's media business. The broadcast business is rapidly changing and Imagine is doing it's best to deliver solutions to help customer's solve problems.
The workplace has a very safe and enjoyable enviroment as everyone works closely with each other to reach a target/goal. Upper Management is very supportive when a decision is made by management, but a discussion is held to ensure that everything was checked and no issues will arise from decision made. Expectations are well explained therefore everyone on the team is aware of deadlines and deliverables, everyone works together to accomplish each task due daily.
Friendly, interactive environment, great health culture.
snacks have been eliminated due to cost cutting efforts
Imagine like to restructure twice a year. You get laid off for now apparent reason. If you get high on salary bracket you a target for lay off. They don't worry about retaining you if you have good tribal knowledge.
Senior Director, Global Solutions Marketing (Former Employee) – Frisco, TX – April 19, 2018
High stress, high energy, great industry, but a lot of change and volatility. Product portfolio going through a lot of change, so shifts occurring constantly. Stability depends on where you work in the company.
High expectations with little communication on what those expectations are
Technology Management (Former Employee) – California – April 15, 2018
There is no lack of opportunity, and if you happen to do what they expect, you can be successful. They purchased a large number of small companies, then didn't want to integrate them correctly, fired a lot of management, and then left the remaining management to fill in the gaps that were left with little understanding of what needed to be done.
Enjoyable work place, with yoga and ping-pong table.
Software Engineer (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – March 29, 2018
Imagine Communications (and her previous organizations along the history) provided excellent working environment and culture for employees to contribute their talent happily and timely. The company once hired a yoga teacher to give yoga class during break time on some week days. There is a ping-pong table available. Our team had stand-up meeting on about every morning so that team players could request help and report progress in time. Managers would have meetings with us about schedules, customer issues, as well as difficulties that need engineering's support, based on necessary so that every one understood his/her responsibilities and schedules.
The company just celebrated its 4 year and recently appointed its 3 CEO. For 2 years about 90% of all job vacancies have not been filled. Most of the c-level struggles to respect and support each other. Most of the directors continue this trend. Even though "communications" in the company name, there is very little communicating done outside of mass emails about the latest marketing roll-out. Despite having 7 entities across the global, there is almost no sense of global culture. Each entity gets its respective holidays, ie all entities outside the US have twice as many paid holidays. Attempts at cutting costs are laughable in comparison to actual expenditures, ie requiring everyone use reusable cups in comparison to sales people getting credit limit increases on their corporate cards.
Market leader in IP and cloud based content distribution
Great place with award winning design and game room.
SR TECHNICAL SUPPORT ENGINEER (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – May 26, 2017
Great people to work with. Smart individuals and several Emmy's won for software development in the broadcasting industry. Had a great design and exercise room that allowed for yoga, jogging, or weight training for de-stressing.
Cadillac level insurance and subsidized parking or bus pass
Assistant to CEO (Internship) (Former Employee) – Frisco, TX – April 10, 2017
Everyone at Imagine was very helpful and cooperative whenever help was needed, and I absolutely loved it here. The work done here has helped me figure out my college major and even what I hope to do later on in life. The hardest part was figuring out some tasks involving Microsoft Excel, but help was all around me, so all I had to do was ask someone.
Analyst (Current Employee) – Frisco, TX – January 24, 2017
Lack of motivation, no salary increases, bonus or anything. Due to continues layoffs more work is given to you with no training whatsoever. Managers expect you to "fulfill your duty" with no reward. (not even a thank you). Management is confused. no guidelines
Current upper management is out of touch with the busy. There have been lay-offs cut backs yet spending on non practical items goes on. Bonus and raises are none existent yet have a yearly award for those who achieve the most 10 people chosen at 5k each and another 20 for 1K each.
Able to wear Jeans each day if we like, take lap tops home, can work from home if ill or injuried, health benefitss start day one of employment.
Upper Managment not in tune with workers or spend.
I have been with company little over a year now, the atmosphere is easy going but can be very stressful at times. Although I have requested a chance to cross train in other areas of the finance department it has been to no avail. High spending on upper management side has caused for major layoffs and location closures. The possibility of the company being sold out is high.
Health Benefits day of employment, Laptop to be able to work from home if need be, and dress code allows for blue jeans/causal attire.
unfortunately the hardware based products are short lived
Sr. Test Engineer (Former Employee) – Sunnyvale, CA – September 9, 2016
Before the company was taken over the work environment was great, people respect each other. management was also pretty open to the status of the company. So people are prepared and informed about the future of the company on short run and long run. After Imagine took over every thing turned upside down and any positive remarks are now as be view to be exactly opposite.
Growing industry and good role with proper leadership
Sales (Current Employee) – Frisco, TX – August 31, 2016
Overall my experience has been good. There hasn't been much sales pressure to this point and the culture is good. Coaching and leadership can improve. A lot of the sales people have been in the role so long so it's an established clientele.
