    Pros

    Love the people at the company - super smart, motivated - people I don't mind hanging out with on a regular basis. Since TA took over have seen a lot more potential and positive energy in the company. Company understands where the industry is heading and has taken steps to stay ahead of the curve (which can be difficult to do in this industry)

    Cons

    Hard to move up in the company due to limited roles in the company (i.e. if a senior person is at the company for a while, no opening until that person leaves). Some confusion and lack of leadership in some management teams.

    Fantastic culture

    I worked at Advertising.com

    Pros

    The team in Baltimore is passionate about the work they do and all genuinely like each other. They attract great talent because of that

    Cons

    Being removed from NYC and the headquarters of AOL can be difficult at times. Key employees need to be sure to make it up to NY frequently

    Pros

    "Googly" culture perhaps because of ex-Googler CEO, nice and (some) smart people to work with, very good work-life balance, good location in NYC, good training

    Cons

    Constant change of management, overlaps of duty, can feel the struggle of higher management level, basically at a very crucial point, not sure about promotion cause i was there for a short time

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set a clear strategy and let your people know it

    I worked at Advertising.com full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I met and learned a lot from a ton of fantastic and intelligent people who I am now good friends with on a personal level. The culture and perks are great - I laughed every day.

    Cons

    Often grueling hours, poor communication between offices and teams, lack of focus and strategy

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I am grateful for the knowledge I gained from my time at AOL, however there was always a lack of focus and strategy, exceptionally poor communication between teams and from executives to the "doers" which resulted in limited to no work/life balance for many employees.

    It was reasonably ok. It was probably a good first job but I did not learn much.

    Pros

    You can get a very stable work-life balance here. Reasonable chances for personal growth as well. The benefits were alright too.

    Cons

    The company progressed at a much slower pace than I would like. The benefits were alright but the compensation was probably much lower than the market rate.
