Pros

Amazing executive team that is always approachable. Makes you feel you're an integral part of something great and not just a cog in the machine. Casual work environment, yet highly focused on performance and doing great work.

Cons

None come to mind at present. I have to write a bit more to reach the 20 word minimum. Ah now I know... the company is growing so fast it's getting difficult to meet and know everyone very well.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

As the company grows, don't lose sight of the founding principles and core values.

    Solid product and brand, but company isn't what it seems from the outside (i.e. smoke in mirrors)

    I worked at AdRoll full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Good snacks
    - Team happy hours
    - Decent wage for a recent college graduate
    - Company/Brand has good recognition in the crowded retargeting space

    Cons

    - Terrible location (you will literally walk past crackheads, massage parlors, the highest crime corners in the city, and human feces to get to the office every day)
    - Very long hours with a serious lack of work/life balance
    - Company prides themselves on a high level of transparency and it's a core value, however, that is the exact opposite of the truth
    - Packed in an office like a can of sardines with recycled air and no ventilation or temperature control
    - Incredibly competitive to a flaw; new employees are thrown to the wolves
    - A bad example of a fraternity. Most organizations consists of differing opinions, challenging the norm, collaborative environments, and individuals from different descents and backgrounds. AdRoll has a horrendous lack of culture and individuality.
    - Unnecessary stroking of the oldest employees egos; instead focus on those you can truly grow

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get over yourselves and start leading your teams properly. Aside from the CEO and Chief Architect who are great, you've all been given an opportunity to *join* a growing company and help propel it forward. Quit focusing on your own egos and career track and start focusing on growing and developing your employees. Leaders *lead* by example - leaving at 4-5pm because you have kids while your employees slave away at night isn't a leader at all.

    Great company, but too much ego on the exec team

    I have been working at AdRoll full-time

    Pros

    (Mostly) good people, albeit too fratastic at times.
    Impressive revenue growth
    Sweet snack/alcohol/happy hour events

    Cons

    - The fratastic-ness has led to some inappropriate incidences that will probably eventually result in some sort of sexual harassment lawsuit or other.
    - Lack of communication and transparency throughout the company.
    - Ego on the exec team is out of control. A couple of them treat other employees as if they were commoners who don't deserve to be looked in the eye.
    - Serious deficiency in personal and professional mentoring.
    - It's a dog-eat-dog environment where facetime matters.

    If you're early in career and looking for people who have your back, this is not the place for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure you're living up to your values.
