    Pros

    I think I was most impressed by how much entry level growth is possible at adMarketplace, and how fast you can be noticed and promoted. I mean, you have to think on your feet and be willing and able to make good, fast decisions, but when you do, your team notices and even upper management. It felt really good to be recognized at the all-staff meeting when our COO told everyone how I’d handled an account and worked with the client had a meaningful impact to the company.

    Cons

    I was there when there was a wave of turn over on my team and it was a rough patch because we were bringing on new people but they still needed to be trained and in the meantime we had a lot of new business that needed to be launched and managed. It was also around the time that they were rolling out a bunch of new tools to change how we did account management and I felt like the roles weren’t clear about what our day to day was supposed to be. I left around then but I’ve heard that the dust has settled on a lot of that now, so it may be less relevant. They did move the team under one of the most capable people and my friends who are still there say it’s a lot better organized, though they still have too many accounts.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure that AMs have enough resources to handle all their accounts. Don’t wait til the last minute to bring on new hires. It may be expensive to have one more AM than you think you need, but it’s probably cheaper in the long run than what you lose when someone leaves and there aren’t enough prepared people to step in and take those accounts.

    I have been working at adMarketplace full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I have worked for many dysfunctional companies in my time, but adMarketplace isn’t one of them. I had heard rumors of difficulties with management, but I haven’t seen it. What I have seen are employees and management coming together to grow the company. Fellow account executives are awesome to work with and bring new hires into the fold. It’s a very conducive environment with lots of growth opportunities. I feel there is a real positive momentum in sales leadership and am really happy with Julie coming in. She is pulling the team together so we work better and is big on supporting each of us to develop more.

    Cons

    The bathroom situation really needs improvement, and I really wish they offered more healthy food options. I shouldn’t complain because it’s free, but the whole country is focusing on better eating, you’d think the company would get on board. A lot of stuff comes with too much sauce/dressing or fried. After Thursday night, it’s not like we all want super heavy stuff.

    Advice to Management

    I think management is doing a great job and I’m happy to have had the opportunity to work here.

The technology team is one of the best in the biz and continues to innovate and build an incredible product everyday. If you want to learn, have your ideas heard, innovate, be challenged and take your career to the next level, adMarketplace is the place to be...Great things are happening and will continue to happen...

    Cons

    If you don't like challenges or embrace problems that come from a growing successful company, then this may not be the best place for you.

    Advice to Management

    The passion our senior management exudes is awesome! Simply awesome. They want this business to be successful and they know it is a team effort that will get them there. The transparency at our company staff meetings are great and knowing where the business is heading in and how we need to get there is also awesome!

    Pros

    The job can be challenging....which in my opinion is definitely a plus. You get to work towards a very rewarding goal that could pay off huge in the long run. Lastly, you get to work with a lot of smart people.

    Cons

    If you are looking for a job to collect a paycheck and fly under the radar, adMarketplace is not for you. Management expects it's employees to be involved in many different projects, find problems, and come up with solutions to help grow the business. If you see this as a con there are plenty of other companies out there.

    Advice to Management

    Summer Fridays. It doesn't have to be the entire day but some kind of incentive that allows employees that work hard to leave a few hours early on Fridays during the Summer.

    Pros

    Work with very smart people, opportunity to learn every aspect of the business. The environment is set up to have tech,sales all in the same place allowing more sharing and learning. Friendly co-workers, if you have your lunch by yourself is because you already went out with your co-worker the night before and you need quiet :)

    Cons

    Like every start up, they do act quick and do mistakes. there is fire drill to push project along so you might need to hang on through the storm but you are never alone! the teams are set to support the challenges

    Advice to Management

    Keep sharing ideas and project from different departments and offers dedicated time for feedbacks

    Pros

    People are genuine and hard-working...always willing to help and dedicated to their work. Its a great place if you're someone who wants to make a real mark. Its not for those who want to blend into the background. But that's a good thing...you're really interacting with almost everyone in the company on a day to day basis and that's instrumental to personal growth and development. Not to mention, the company is about to get so much bigger (in name and number of employees). It would be a fantastic time to get in now.

    Cons

    With great power comes great responsibility. You will work hard and much will be expected of you. You need to stay on your toes and know what you're talking about, working on, working towards, etc... Be prepared!

    Advice to Management

    Be willing to admit faults.

    I worked at adMarketplace full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I worked at adMarketplace for well over a year and have only good things to say. adMarketplace is a fast moving, rapidly growing advertising company that is making big moves in the search advertising space. It was a bittersweet decision to leave the company to obtain my masters. Mostly because it has been so enjoyable being a member of a team that is on the verge of making headlines typically reserved for Google and Bing. The people and culture are absolutely top-class — it is like playing on a cohesive sports team. If you're a curious person, that enjoys being held accountable because you can see the long-term vision in it, then this is definitely a company worth applying to.

    Cons

    They have the people and they have the product to support their growth, but as they grow they need to make sure the internal process are in place for when it is time to scale. However, this has been a major focus of late, and I am confident that have the key personnel in place.

    Advice to Management

    As you grow, either trust or train your mid-level managers to make more of the smaller decisions.
