I worked at Vantage Media full-time (more than an year)Pros
Interesting problems to solve.
Mostly friendly and diligent workers.
Some interesting, well-rounded, and passionate people.
Many treats like a weekly lunch, birthday and cultural celebrations, and nice office space.
Flexible work location and time arrangements.
Not hiring appropriate talent to solve important problems.
Several arrogant yet non-critical thinkers.
Not having a test-and-learn strategy.
Bulldozing despite scope creep.
Lacking clarity about engineering resources and feasible deliverables.
Supposed analytics people that did not know analytics (math and data technologies).Advice to ManagementAdvice
Make decisions with both eyes open, which means listen to major pain points, and then test-and-learn to start avoiding sub-par error-prone do-everything solutions.
Learn how to match data and technology problems to appropriate skills.
Stop pandering and pointing; start identifying problems and collaborating to solve them.
Stop hiring based on standardized tests; doing so further suggests you do not know what to look for.
