Maxpoint Interactive – Why Work For Us?

undefined

When you see an ad online that pushes you to the store, chances are we put it there.


From the beginning, MaxPoint had a clear vision: to drive in-store sales for advertisers by helping them reach the right neighborhoods online for their local, regional, and national campaigns. We worked hard to develop advanced digital advertising technology—the kind that uses complex algorithms and the latest in real-time data to pinpoint and reach the consumers most likely to buy products.


Our results speak volumes—we have worked with each of the top 20 leading national advertisers as ranked by Advertising Age. And as one of the fastest-growing companies in North America, we remain committed to growing our team of digital advertising experts and to producing results for the biggest brands, retailers, and agencies across the globe.

    Pros

    Surrounded by pretty smart, pretty cool people. The office is open and doesn't feel confined (no cubicles.) There's a fully stocked kitchen and fun things to do if, on the off chance, you run into a bit of free time. Joe's pretty cool. Employees and managers are very candid and are open to feedback. Good work is noted. You can start work any time in the morning, as long as you get your work done. Generally people enter at 9-10 and leave at 5-7. Sometimes there's an emergency that requires you to stay later or work on the weekend, but it's not terrible.

    Cons

    Some of the social stuff can be upsetting to witness. For example, lot of the people that work there (employees and managers) tend to talk negatively about people that aren't around. Some of it is in good spirit, but there's enough not-in-good-spirit talk to make you wonder if you're the target when you're not around. Some people even go out of their way to exclude others and then are overjoyed to have succeeded. These are generally the people you want to avoid anyways, as there are plenty of nice people that don't participate in these activities.

    Advice to Management

    Participating in the above cons generally makes your employees feel like they can't trust you. It also makes the workplace feel like high school or early college again, which is pretty sad. Try and maintain patience with employees that ask questions. A lot of the questions are actually necessary, as a slight misunderstanding can mess everything up.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Maxpoint Interactive.

    Interview

    They are looking for buzzwords in the initial call. Say the word Python and Hadoop. They will like you. The person who makes the first call doesn't know much but just listens for these buzzwords. I'm sure I did very well but they never followed up, which is shocking considering how well everything went. I had no trouble with anything and they seemed genuinely interested, but just haven't heard anything. They really don't have their stuff together over there. Bad HR department.
