    Just DON'T do it

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsCoworkers are great and they feed you on Friday.

    ConsSenior management is awful, don't expect them to take the time to listen to anything you have to say or help you develop your skills.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Overloaded employees. Take better options if possible

    Search Marketing Analyst (Former Employee) New York, NY

    Pros-trying hard to improve employee work like with beer pong tournaments and buying sodas and drinks for people.
    -young, vibrant workforce
    -always more to learn

    Cons-Very high turnover rate among sales and ad ops.
    -Arrogant senior management
    -Very poor work life balance (consistently worked 9-7pm at the very least)
    -They take attendance every day and will reprimand you if you show up to work at 9:05am, and frown at you if you're the first in your group to leave even if you've finished all your work.
    -Tedious reports and meetings every day.

    Advice to Senior Management-Please control your temper whenever possible (see: anger management)
    -Don't threaten to fire people all the time. That doesn't breed loyalty.
    -Learn to appreciate your employees, don't act like you're doing them a favor by employing them.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Try it out and see what happens. Don't move to New York for this job though.

    Account Manager (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsYou will be rewarded if you perform well. The senior management (the top 3 guys) only care about one thing: money. Management does not care about their product or their company beyond how well it can make them money. If you help them make money, they will like you. They will give you a meaningless title (senior/director) and a decent salary. You can progress quickly in the company if you are at the high end of the money-making bell curve. However, those in the middle or back of the bell curve are constantly on thin ice. That's about 90% of all employees. The average lifespan of an admarketplace employee is 2 months.

    This is not unlike other online advertising/marketing companies though. The industry is rough and cutthroat. There are plenty of better jobs in online marketing NOT at online firms. Almost all companies do PPC and often hire in-house account managers.

    ConsAdmarketplace is not necessarily a terrible place to work if you can handle the following:
    -Long hours without adequate compensation
    -Complete lack of respect from management
    -Superficial office culture
    -Absurdly aggressive micromanagement
    -Occasional work on weekends and holidays
    -Ubiquitous sadness from constant firings

    Echoing a previous post, if you have better options, take them

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsCoworkers are very smart and knowledgeable. If you're interested in learning about different areas, many have great backgrounds and can give you more information. Almost everyone is open to sharing their experiences.

    However, senior members are often overloaded, so you may not get the feedback you need.

    ConsThey take attendance and now they are going to start 'grading' your code. Management is essentially two-faced, telling you one thing, like, 'we don't want you working here all hours', but then showing and demanding the opposite, such as moving code releases too early, not sufficiently testing the code, and finding scapegoats to fire. The system is buggy and hastily put together and new hires struggle with learning. There are many more new hires than senior members, (who have been pushed out), and there is high turnover. Someone quit after only two days when he saw what was really going on. There is no loyalty from management even if you've done great work for years and the contract also states that they can fire you for any reason.

    It's the recession and they'll use that. And most of the new hires are on visas.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop walking around with a metal bat to instill fear in your workers. Stop blaming people when they can't fix problems that you created.

    Have Other Options? Take Them.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) New York, NY

    Pros- Company has start-up culture, you will not feel pigeonholed into doing a specific kind of work
     - Opportunity to learn new skills quickly
     - Exciting, fast-paced industry
     - For advertising, reasonable compensation

    Cons- You will consistently feel that you are smarter than management
     - Office culture can be difficult at times
     - Company objectives change regularly, leading to confusion

    Advice to Senior ManagementHave respect for your employees. They will be better and more reliable workers if there is more of a team environment. In addition, replacing some senior management to bring on board individuals with better leadership and vision may be necessary.

    Third "Have other options? Take them"

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    Pros- Plenty of opportunities to get your hands dirty
    - Fun coworkers
    - Open atmosphere
    - Fun client events
    - Good foot-in-the-door opportunity

    Cons- Management lacks leadership abilities
    - Employees are not usually treated well for how much work they put in
    - Lower than average salary
    - Less than full benefits
    - Management holds you responsible for your work, but don't hold themselves to the same standards

    Advice to Senior ManagementInvest in your employees. Don't act like they owe you just because you're at the head of the company and you "gave them an opportunity to work there." Listen to them in meetings; they are experts in their fields and giving you suggestions for the better of the company. That's not disrespect.
