    I have been working at Amobee full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    career growth opportunities are available if you work hard but as with most places, you have to speak up to get what you want, goal focused and each office has a prize wheel, very big on recognition events

    Cons

    work/life balance could be better, that is partly self-inflicted but also an understated expectation, no 401k matching

    Advice to Management

    offer manager review vs employee review, monthly excellence nominations need feedback on why nominees weren't considered or some feedback

    Pros

    Employees are encouraged to take ownership and you don't have to put up with a lot of bureaucracy. The management encourages fail fast for big wins. If you are a self-starter, you can have big impacts and get support from your leaders to try new things. There is a good work life balance. A lot of support for people to have families or flex around their lives. The new management is doing a good job at setting a vision and communicating to the entire company -- so we all can see the 50,000 foot view.

    Cons

    Freedom also means little guidance. There is not a lot of hand holding or even direction. It can be confusing/frustrating to jump into something to find out that was yesterday's issue and you need to move on--quickly. It isn't erratic, but you need to be able to self-organize.

    Advice to Management

    Get a better training program. For the entry positions, it is still too sink or swim. Same with new initiatives and sales offerings; they get created and no one gets training. The people in the trenches could use more support.

    I worked at Amobee (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Nice fun place to work. The people are great. Benefits are good with the company paying for all medical, dental and vision if you don't take the most expensive plan.

    Cons

    Management needs to be more open and honest with employees. Do surprise the employees with sudden decision that takes every by surprise. Quit letting the acquired company continue to run things. They were acquired for a reason.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open and honest.

    I have been working at Amobee full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Fun and friendly employees. Young, cool, smart, level headed management. Tons of company outings that are fun fun fun, most with free food, drinks, and prizes. Health, dental, vision, 401k, plus more. On your work anniversary and birthday, you get to "spin the wheel" which is literally a huge wheel with prizes, from $100 Nordstrom gift card to an Apple Watch to $1000 bucks cash. Challenging, mentally stimulating, engaging work... I'm always learning at Amobee. I could go on and on, but to make this short I love my job and I adore the company. They take care of the employees so well. My friends and family are jealous I work for such a great company.

    Cons

    I settled for a salary that was much less than I asked for, not really sure how that will play out in the future

    I have been working at Amobee full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fast growing company, with great products and market opportunities. Became very technology oriented with recent acquisitions. Though already employs hundreds of employees around the globe, maintains the startup culture. Great compensation and benefits as well as work life balance.

    Cons

    Brand name is not that strong and familiar, company needs better alignment of and focus, strong market competition

    Advice to Management

    Keep is a startup culture, don't turn into slow moving enterprise. Higher investment in branding (bring back the bee :), invest in technology, listen to your employees,

    I have been working at Amobee full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    While the company has 600 employees worldwide and whose parent company is a $60B SingTel, there is a entrepreneurial spirit in the Product/Tech group of which I am part. I can't speak for other teams, but the Product/Tech group values transparency, innovation, and efficiency. There is no bureaucracy layers to fight through to get things done. Almost everyone is pleasant to work with and cooperative. No one breathes down on your neck and micromanages you, but there are plenty to do, so it's really up to each person how far and how high they can go here.

    Cons

    Communication between different parts of the organization can be improved.

    Pros

    People make or break your work environment, and Amobee has great people that are engaging, passionate, smart, innovative, and thrive on sharing ideas. It's just an environment of great energy!! Lot's of opportunities for cross training and increasing your skill set. Amobee is also one of the leaders in the Digital Marketing space, and continues to grow as they bring innovative solutions to the market.

    Cons

    Not really a con, but the work environments is so positive, it's easy to work long hours if you're not careful.

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring great people that can not only add value quickly, but also inspire others. Keep implementing strategies that keep us competitive in our market sector.

    I have been working at Amobee full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Tons of internal mobility, they love promoting from within but also have big employee outside referral program - Very flexible with hours, travel and work from home schedules, more so than most companies - Great HR policies and benefit package - Compensation is fair, with many opportunities for performance based bonuses and annual increases

    Cons

    - Upper management sometimes stretched too thin, not always available - Company is very spread out, lots of offices in different cities (and countries), making interoffice communication very difficult at times

    Pros

    Amobee is an absolutely stellar place to work. The company culture is second to none. The people are a joy to be around, intelligent and collaborative. There are full benefits along with the opportunity to grow outside the workplace as well. Quarterly community service events, happy hours and a fully stocked kitchen. The company has a vision and plan for the future which every employee buys into.

    Cons

    The only area Amobee is lacking is truly competitive compensation. It is not a major deal as the benefits make up for it, but pays below the market average to its employees.

    Advice to Management

    No advice necessary. Management is collaborative and works well together. Keeps their employees well informed of what is happening and direction of the company.
