    Pros

    Company has a monopoly in Box Office receipts data and built a new biz about 10-12 years ago in measurement of cable VOD (video-on-demand) when no other entity was interested in pursuing. The company is also the industry leader in this area. Senior Mgmt has strong experience in media measurement and has tripled the company's stock price in the last few years, largely due to the success of the local TV ratings business that fills a void that Nielsen was slow to address. Employees can participate in the company's stock purchase program if they have the funds to do it. Teamwork amongst and between departments and lines of business is excellent.

    Cons

    Since Senior Mgmt is totally focused on quarterly earnings, investment in technology and talent that could advance company performance and market share over the long run is really lacking. It often appears that organizational structures are changed to fit the skills of "friends" who have been hired, rather than organizing based on logic and strategy. The CEO is not located in HQ and doesn't know most employees, which wouldn't be difficult since it's a small company. The CEO often appears that he is only interested in flipping the company for his own enrichment. As other reviewers have mentioned, Portland HQ employees have good work life balance, but people in the field offices (largely sales) don't appear to have balance due to little staff, unrealistically high goals and often extremely long big-city commutes. Field employees complain that they are pushed beyond reason to exceed constantly changing goals and incentive plans. It's apparent to those of us in HQ who interface with customers that the company's meager investment in technology (more developers needed even when at budget level) affects sales' ability to meet customer expectations for rapid product advancements and therefore, opens up the door for lost business and customer complaints.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This company has a lot of potential, but could be on the verge of declining stock price and lost market share if all people don't feel motivated and rewarded, and if they aren't given the proper tools and resources to do the best job possible. Show every employee that they're important to the company's success. Improve communication that also seeks input from employees regarding strategy and internal processes that could be improved upon. We all want to win, not just make it so the CEO and his team are the exclusive winners.
