    Pros

    Great colleagues, friendly, free food and drinks. Good atmosphere. Poker tournament, exercise room, lots of employees activities.

    Cons

    When all companies trying to move forward, Operations and IT going backward. We were told no more VMs. No more storage. Let's buy physical box instead without warranty. Don't complain to HR. If you do, you be out of here in a month. I personally seen 6 ppl complaint and they are no longer here. No communication on project, status, etc.. Very sad.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn the technology and listen to your people. Lots or brilliant engineers here. I can see a 20% reduction in workforce once the blackout period is over.

    Pros

    Lots of perks like other hi-tech companies like free shuttle, free lunch, etc. Generally everyone is very friendly and social.

    Cons

    There is no career development for many employees. They don't value loyalty. Company does not encourage to hire within. Upper management turns a blind eye to the high turnover rate. People get let go and there are no announcements

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Inspect teams with high turnover, focus on career development, encourage work/life balance, discourage secrecy

    Pros

    Friendly people in the workforce. Some very smart individuals who are great to have on your team. You can get a lot accomplished if you're in the right team. Innovation is encouraged through hackdays and online suggestion board. They know their business - digital coupons.

    Cons

    There is so much negativity in some groups that it's hard to feel motivated about your work. Executives pay very little attention to the people who are working to support them. Layoffs/Firings occur regularly - there have been 6 in less than 3 years. No explanation or morale booster for the folks left to pick up without them. Feels like any day could be your last. There is no clear career path, job requirements. Advancements are purely subjective and arbitrary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give a structured job requirement/career path. Be more transparent about the business so that when there is a layoff it makes sense to the rest of us. Proper communication can help us to not be working in constant fear for losing our jobs.

    Former Employee - Product Manager in Mountain View, CA

    Pros

    Very few pros, although they do have a decent client base.

    Cons

    Enormous turnover, no brand, HR or internal communications. little regard for employees, its all talk. CEO is huge micromanager - employees just expected to react, never question the status quo.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Welcome ideas, your employes are not robots. There is more to life than the IPO and money. If you treated employees and customers better you would reduce your attrition in your CPG customers who are flocking to other providers.

    Pros

    The corporate story is great. Company success is with CPG companies.

    Cons

    The non-CPG sales organization is pure poison. Disconnected leadership that does not listen or care about client results. Zero collaboration. Stay away from the promise that this CPG solution only needs you and your connections to be successful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You should know that data talks, BS walks. Observe the actual trends in the non-CPG group. Distinguish the hype from the real growth curve.

    Former Employee - Business Development & Partnership Acquisition Director

    Pros

    Start up, interesting ability to build a new digital business. Pay was ok, work life balance was good. Tight with $$ for conferences that could have been a great networking and sales opportunity.

    Cons

    Upper management was really out of touch with frontline employees. Focused on growing just those big clients and not expanding into the mid to lower tier where there were less resistance and more partnership opportunities. The partnership model went to a self serve model and i think they lost a lot of opportunities to grow thier publishers network and create more win-win revenue opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stop with the tight fisted option sharing and use for retention. Folks have no long term incentive to stay.
