I have been working at adMarketplace full-time (more than 3 years)Pros
There are a lot of really smart people here – you can really learn a lot. They actually encourage it with their weekly “lunch and learn” sessions. It helps develop your skills and fix any problems you may be running into.
Their Tuesday morning meetings updates all of the departments, which I have found to be super helpful in generating new ideas across the board. I do enjoy the inter-team interaction and think it’s great that everyone is happy to pitch in and help.Cons
A lot of the leadership is self-taught which is great as a personal challenge, but can be annoying when it's the only type of leadership.Advice to ManagementAdvice

Getting an Interview
Getting an Interview
- Application Details
I applied through other source – interviewed at adMarketplace in September 2014.Interview Details
Was contacted by a junior HR member of the adMarketplace team. I had a phone interview and was then brought in to interview with the president of the company. He seemed to like me and told me he wanted me to come in to speak with the CEO. I never heard back. I contacted the original HR person who advised me that the president wanted me to put together a business plan. This was already on top of putting together a list of my top 100 publisher contacts and the level of the people I know there. I put together the business plan (my Labor Day weekend) and sent it in. Again, no acknowledgement from HR. I asked if they had received it and I was told yes and that they thought it was great. I followed up over the next few weeks to see next steps and never heard back---ever---from anyone.Interview Questions
