I worked at Outbrain full-time (More than a year)
Outbrain boasts one of the most exciting products out there in the online space, and as the company is growing rapidly you're working in a fast-moving environment. As it maintains a start-up feel the job can be varied, challenging, and with room to get creative. There's some great people from around the world who are passionate about what they do.
Outbrain is at war with its competitor Taboola, so it can be a rollercoaster of ups and downs depending on who's winning the battle. Management often knee-jerks to the competitor's movements, and the lambasting and name-calling of them to their advertisers can be very unprofessional. In the race to first prize you see the darker sides of business - that coupled with the long hours can make it a stressful and unpleasant place to work.
Advice to Management
Find the right balance between 'start-up' feel and established business: put in place middle managers who are there to actually manage the team. Currently, old-timers want to keep all the key accounts but give little time to manage, delegate or listen to junior members.
