    Pros

    Very flexible hours with unlimited vacation (I work from home one day a week).

    Everyone here is an expert in their field (so good for experience).

    Relaxed and friendly work environment.

    Pay is decent (I came in with no experience).

    Cons

    Benefits are average (no 401K buy-in amount matching).

    Training is almost non existent but they are working diligently on changing that.

    Advice to Management

    Management is very approachable here. The company has a very 'start up' feel to it.

    Maintaining this rather open line of communication between management and employee is important for the company's health in my opinion.

    Pros

    The analytics this company performs is valuable to clients and very interesting to work on. Finding ways to move this analysis capability into software the clients can use both for planning and tactical execution in offline and online marketing is the right goal. The reasonably flexible office hours are great for people with families and the LA office is a nice place to work. Most of the people are dedicated, great at what they do, and fun to work with. Salaries are not on the high end but reasonable.

    Cons

    Typical pains of a fast growing company -- how to balance customization of models and insights with the need to scale for more and more clients. Flexible software is part of the answer with clear focus and staffing on automation and scale goals. But there can be some long hours with too many projects.

    Advice to Management

    Would be really great to have a matching 401k type plan as a way help retain talent. EPUs seem too nebulous and uncertain to most people, while some sort of vesting in a matched savings plans seems much more concrete.

    Pros

    Good group of Marketing Analytics folks. The Strategists are very informed about the models and do a better job of presenting the information then I've seen at competitive organizations.

    Cons

    Not much variety in the work. No 401k matchng funds.

  8. Smart colleagues, growing company and great opportunities.

    Pros

    * Growing company makes for opportunities to take on increasingly large professional responsibilities for career growth
    * Talented colleagues
    * Strong support for work/life balance from management. The company supports technologies that allow for remote work when needed and management supports those priorities. There has not been a day that I walked into work and not wanted to be there
    * This company is producing a leading service and it feels good to be a part of making it even better
    * The culture is largely vibrant - but also, is what you make of it for good or bad. The age tends to skew on the younger side relative to other companies, being that it is a technology company and draws such talent.

    Cons

    * Unlike a start-up, there is a mixed feeling of ownership or equity. There is an EPU program which is the equivalent of a stock option plan. Only, there is no well defined definition of the value of this plan. This leaves the possibility that the owners and board have a very lucrative sale without the employees benefiting as much or at all from it.
    * Pay is generally on the lower end of the scale

    Advice to Management

    As you grow the company, carefully consider how to move forward with managing profitability. You have the fortune of talented and highly educated staff supporting the company and you have the misfortune of these people carefully watching every change good (new clients, new services) and bad (change in policies regarding promotions, bonuses, value of EPU, salary increases).
    I think your value is in your employees and innovation they have made and have yet to be made in the coming years. The client base, while impressive, will not grow at its current pace without the continued support from your staff.

    Pros

    Lot of challenging problems to solve with great coworkers and mentors. And all the hard work you put gets recognized and appreciated as everything is visible to senior management.

    Small team working on projects which provides good learning opportunity. Chance to work on the cutting edge technologies like big data on hadoop/hive, AWS cloud, grails framework etc.. depending on profile and project. Flexible working hours and facility of work from home, best suited for those coming other state.

    Cons

    Sometimes things gets crazy and you might end up working overtime but isn't that true for any rapidly growing start-up!
    Pay is average and hopefully senior management will consider that since the attrition rate has increased recently.
