    I have been working at MediaMath full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    MediaMath is a great place to work for a number of reasons: 1) you are always surrounded by extremely smart people who work really hard 2) these hard working people also know how to have fun and laugh off the stress of a fast paced, intense job 3) employees are treated as equals, it's a very flat organization 4) the career opportunities allow you to advance in a number of ways - lateral across departments, upward via promotion, overseas for new experiences and more 5) it's great to be defending and growing an industry-leading position rather than scrambling to get to the top!

    Cons

    If you don't like to work hard in a fast-paced industry, MediaMath isn't for you.

    I have been working at MediaMath as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Everyone at MediaMath seems smart, dedicated,willing to think outside the box and very friendly. Management is supportive and encourages their employees to learn and grow within the company. During my interview process my recruiter said growth was very important as a "Math Value" and they hire people who are smart and ambitious. I have worked for many companies who don't want their employees to grow and are vocal about that. Feels great to be working for a company where employees are given tools to succeed!

    Cons

    Company is growing so fast they have run out of places for people to sit. People sit very close together

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

    Pros

    AdTech is an area that is just starting to take off and it's spectacular to be on the ground floor of a company that is really willing to listen to it's employees to ensure they have what they need to be successful. The benefits are top notch and there is a very laid back, friendly environment. I also feel like I have the support from my team (HR) to really grow into my career.

    Best piece of advice- make sure to surround yourself with smart people and you can only grow from there! I feel like I've definitely done this at MediaMath.

    Cons

    Sometimes, things to feel a bit unorganized; however, it seems like things are slowly getting back on track as MediaMath listens to it's employees. In a company that grew as fast as MediaMath did, these things tend to happen.

    Lack of space is an issue (when is it not!); however, I can see the wheels turning to fix issue so hopefully it will happen soon.

    I have been working at MediaMath full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The company is built around a group of very smart people. The workplace is fairly friendly, working hours are decent. The company has good prospects due to the leading position in this hot industry. Free snacks and soda.

    Cons

    The compensation and benefits could be improved upon. Turnaround is fairly high in some departments. Individual work spaces are very small, the desks are crammed together one into another, without real separation between them. Because there are no cubicles/walls, the noise level may be too high for some people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get in direct contact with regular employees to find out what goes on within the ranks. Decide what the main product is, and focus efforts in that direction.
