    Pros

    People are doing their best with what they have and you all sort of have this bond of being in it together - the awful circumstances you're in that is.

    Employees actually like CEO and President, and people want them around. More accessibility to these leaders may be able to keep employees.

    Cons

    PubMatic in a nutshell – if it weren’t for the clever recruiters that structure interviews to represent the positive aspects, no one would ever accept an offer! I heard the recruiters are leaving though!

    Pay is well below market value and as I discovered through conversations with my peers, we were convinced to take lateral moves in compensation. And there is a lot of difficulty for sales to even meet targets.

    Once you join, you realize the dire circumstances of your situation but you HOPE that you haven’t made that bad of a decision and try to stick it out. But you have, and you did and it’d be wise to get out quickly once you realize this. It doesn’t and it won’t get better.

    Management encourages abrasive communication style among the company, where everyone is stressed out and worried about embarrassment and beratement.

    Mid-management all possess poor planning skills. There is no effort to plan ahead. As a result, teams jump from emergency to emergency, and your own life is put on hold to handle situations. Directors and above can't ever seem to get a handle on what needs to be done, and our teams inevitably suffer.

    Without planning or strategy, how are employees expected to know what is next, when management doesn't do a good job of providing the context to make sure we can be successful? PubMatic’s forte is setting employees up to fail.

    Lack of decision-making is rampant here. The worst managers and senior leadership collect all the intel and still can't or don’t make decisions. The ramifications go beyond just whether a decision is good or bad for a customer. It doesn't promote trust, which is essentially why there is turnover once bonuses are paid out. Can’t trust that employees will be looked after when it comes to commissions, raises or promotions.

    Company philosophy from the top down is to take credit for the good and pass blame for the bad. There is absolutely no confidence or trust that PubMatic’s leadership will support you and your career.

    Arrogance, uncaring, and uses fear tactics. Some of the leaders get away with a lot because employees believe she or he cares about them but the reality is that your well being isn't high on the priority list. This is definitely the case when attempting to speak with HR about your concerns and / or career goals. And because this starts at the top, all the managers lack leadership skills and are intimidated themselves and unsure how to get results without veiled or obsure threats of you losing your job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    CEO would do well to clean house and delve into more of the details. I heard in the past he used to be a micromanager but that things got done - maybe going back to that style of management of his direct staff would improve the layers below in the organization.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
