    I worked at iBus Media full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The co-workers are great, and the atmosphere is fun and kinda startup-y. People are young and mostly motivated at iBus. The communication is very easy, no boundaries to reach top management. Hours are flexible and as the company is not yet fully formed into a corporation and there are no processes in place, you work with a lot of different areas, so you learn a lot.

    Cons

    The top management seems to be inexperienced for what the company is going through - moving from a startup to a part of a corporation. There could be more transparency. Too many "managers", so the title doesn't mean anything anymore. The headcount is too heavy and not properly distributed - there are people who work weekends and there are people who come to the office to scroll Facebook. The salaries are quite low.

    Cons

    Depending on a job role: - Not 8 to 5 kinda work. - Working igaming media industry results in often shifting priorities, thus you can't avoid pressure at times. - Some roles can be very demanding and it becomes harder to keep work/life balance.

    Pros

    A company that really cares for its employees with excellent career advancement opportunities. They really look after their employees and encourage growths within the company. with several years in the company ive seen a lot of changes and i can honestly say that the company we have today is the best ive ever seen during my years. They also focus on internal development meaning if you get the foot in the door, you will have excellent opportunities waiting for you if you have the drive, energy and the ability to take initiative and see the bigger picture

    Cons

    Working remotely you sometimes feel disconnected and the lack of having co-workers around you.

    I have been working at iBus Media full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    (Note: non-developer positions may have different experiences) Great work/life balance: overtime is almost unheard of; option to work from home several days per month. Good culture: focus on solving problems instead of shifting blame; easy to stay out of office politics, if desired. High sense of ownership in all projects, great freedom in making technical decisions.

    Cons

    Tiny teams - most projects involve only one developer. Not great for personal growth, gets in the way of some industry best practices, leads to feeling isolated. Many projects, few developers - you can end up hopping between vastly different projects multiple times per month. Sometimes this can get highly disruptive, leading to exhaustion and horrible productivity. Departments feel isolated from each other, to the point that members of different teams sitting in the same office, engaged in very similar processes, often seem unaware of what their colleagues do. This sometimes leads to teams wasting time on already solved problems, or unnecessarily convoluted processes that could have been trivially solved with better communication and context. All of the above contributes to the feeling of isolation, but not on purpose - if you enjoy working alone and don't care about your work's context, you may consider this isolation to be beneficial.

    I worked at iBus Media full-time

    Pros

    Great people to work with for the most part. Opportunity to travel and learn about various parts of an online gambling business. Extremely challenging in a good way.

    Cons

    Lack of direction and instability were apparent. Priorities shifted too often, and people were expected to do too many jobs at once.

    I have been working at iBus Media

    Pros

    iBus Media is an ideal employer for anyone looking for a starting point into the world of media. The people working there are great, very relaxed and helpful. There is no real bureauracy and little to no micromanaging so working conditions are great as is the pay.

    Cons

    Assignements get repetitive and the work through time just becomes one long routine. While the work is simple and easy to do there is no real acomplishment to it and is seldomly leads to advancement.
