    I have been working at Cardlytics full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great boss, flexible work schedule for commuting, decent benefits, free coffee, snacks and soft drinks, recreation rooms with arcade games, ping pong and basketball. Fast, fun company to work for. The company generally promotes internally.

    Cons

    Everyone at Cardytics needs to be self motivated and take responsibility for their actions. Being a start up can result in hard work and long hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing and go for gold!

    I worked at Cardlytics full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Self-driven environment. A good place for determined, self-motivated individuals. Flexible hours.

    Cons

    The kind of management that you wished you had left earlier. Best performers are definitely not the high-up. Very little strategic thinking. Everything is fix-on-the-go. Highly customized methodologies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop using 'start-up' as an excuse to make people work more hours. Squeezing every bit out of employees only gives you temporary performance boost. And if you keep recycling them, you'll get more negatives reviews

    Pros

    Worked remotely, thus did not get to enjoy any of the perks that HQ had. Can't actually come up with any pros.

    Cons

    Can you say top-heavy? Three Presidents? Multiple Senior VP's, EVP's and VP's. Totally ridiculous. The company fails its employees in every way - crappy equipment, worthless training, no travel guidelines, ambiguous management structure. They don't have a proper HR department. Everyone is making up their own rules as they go. As far as I can tell, the top performers are NOT in management.

    Pros

    This is my first week but reading other reviews of people has made it clear that Cardlytics environment is not right for everyone. The expectation is for brilliant independent performers. If you feel like Lebron James in Cleveland, bring your talents to Cardlytics. Otherwise, it will not be a good place for you. The requirements are that you have advanced problem solving skills and are intrinsically motivated.

    Cons

    The environment demands that you are independent and driven. It is definitely not built for everyone.

    Highly over-rated and bloated Executive Management team. A Dead man walking company

    Pros

    Good coffee, nice office, boss drives a cool car. Lego's

    Cons

    Good concept, horrific execution and leadership. If I was an investor I would want my money back, unless it could go public, but my guess is the ad revenue/profit will never be achieved.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire your entire Executive level sales management. Mark Twain once said "Figures don't lie but liars figure." Engagement, Engagement, Engagement - you can't lie about your advertising engagement numbers by hiding the truth within self created analytics and engagement reporting. I ask, who is watching the Watchman? They create data from their own data, how stupid do you have to be to believe their "bank data" is ever going to indicate anything but their agenda - it is only "Foo'ls Gold" designed to steal your ad spend and produce paper results, not increase real sales growth.

    I worked at Cardlytics

    Pros

    The culture is very relaxed. Flexible work hours. Decent Salaries. Good employees. Good ideas and product.

    Cons

    No formalized training. You'll get a general overview then you're expected to be a SME and should be able to handle anything. They don't really encourage any sort of knowledge transfer. Poor middle management. They take pride in their "party culture". If you're not in the "in crowd" you're treated poorly. No 401k match. They boast "unlimited vacation days" but are workaholics and scrutinize time off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grow your company. Set a standard and stick to it. Hold your middle management accountable for their actions. Promote your performers.
