    I worked at Ampush

    Pros

    It's a fun place to work with a lot of cool people who care about what they're doing. Definitely a good experience.

    Cons

    When I worked there they were growing fast. The growing pains resulted in occasional miscommunication or disorganization.

    I have been working at Ampush full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Ability to grow based on merit based environment. Lots of social activities and team building. Founders are always at work. Lots of bright people.

    Cons

    Lack of experience in technical areas lead to a immature product line. Also sometimes lack of experience at top to give clear focus and direction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep growing the company by hiring bright people and keep core values

    I worked at Ampush full-time

    Pros

    I worked with some really cool people. Our team cared about each other and embodied the company value 'win as a team'

    Cons

    The hours can be very long and the stress levels are high, depending on which department you work in. Management was completely abysmal. There was zero mentorship, few learning opportunities, and ineffective feedback channels. Career opportunities in the company are opaque. Promotions felt very political. Many people are unhappy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees better. You hire extremely intelligent people and fail to nurture their happiness and talents. Do not sell people the startup dream if career progression is as slow as it is. Hire more women.

    I have been working at Ampush full-time

    Pros

    Start up culture, work hard to make you successful

    Cons

    You're expected to bridge the gap for foundational issues with man hours, which leads to some high stress weeks, although it's tempered with low stress ones.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ad ops will eventually have to be automated
