Pros

Wahrscheinlich kann ich eine andere Perspektive mitteilen, da ich in Australien bei Adknowledge gearbeitet habe, dann weggegangen bin und etwa 2,5 Jahre später auf einem anderen Kontinent wieder eingetreten bin. Zuallererst bemerken Sie den Unterschied in der Gesellschaft. Es ist ein Unternehmen, das wächst, sich mehr und mehr international anfühlt und Struktur und Vision hat. Das, zusammen mit der Tatsache, dass sie 8+ Akquisitionen getan haben und sehr profitabel sind, hilft wirklich, um zu fühlen, dass sie eine große Zukunft vor sich haben. Obendrein haben sie ein Unternehmen erworben, das einer der wenigen strategischen Partner von Facebook ist und sich in einem frühen Stadium einer überaus erfolgreichen Geschäftseinheit befindet. Adknowledge hat eine Menge zu bieten: einen inspirierenden CEO, einen lustigen Arbeitsplatz, ein wirklich weltweites Team von Leuten, Zugang zu den neuesten Tech-Trends im Mobile-, Social- und Video-Bereich sowie eine allgemeine Offenheit für Veränderung.

I can probably share a different perspective since I used to work for Adknowledge in Australia, then left and rejoined about 2 1/2 years later in a different continent. First of all you notice the difference in the company. It has become a business that is growing up, has a more international feel to it and more structure and vision. That, combined with the fact that they have done 8+ acquisitions and are very profitable really helps to feel they have a big future ahead. On top they have acquired a business which is one of the few strategic partners of Facebook and is in an early stage of becoming a hugely successful business unit. Adknowledge has a lot to offer: an inspiring CEO, a fun workplace, a truly global team of people, exposure to the latest tech trends in mobile, social and video as well as a general openness for change.

Cons

Wahrscheinlich ist die eine Sache, die für mich eine Herausforderung wurde, dass wir in Europa noch in einem sehr frühen Stadium und Startmodus sind. Also das bedeutet, dass wir alle sehr beschäftigt sind und wenig Freizeit haben. Aber dies macht es dann auch spannend, da wir ein Unternehmen sind, das fast aus dem Nichts wachsen kann.

Probably the one thing that has been challenging for me is that in Europe we are still at a very early stage and in startup mode. So, that means we all are extremely busy and have little time for leisure. But then, this also makes it exciting since we are able to grow a business from almost nothing.

    Pros

    One great thing about working for a tech company is -- the tech. Macbook Pro is the standard laptop of choice and before I left, they were buying better laptops which is great for developers.

    Cons

    Most employees are just a number. Adknowledge is made up of acquisitions. This causes an unstable work environment where at any time, management could decide a team is no longer necessary for growth and poof, the team is dissolved. Some may be let go and some may be absorbed by other teams.

    Other than being just a number and the constant instability of teams, the work that Adknowledge often times borders on illegal. For that reason, job satisfaction was low as the only purpose to the company is to generate more and more revenue.

    Oh yeah, if you get promised bonuses/etc, take it with a grain of salt.

    Advice to Management

    - Be more honest and transparent.
    - When you land good talent, fight to keep them.
    - Stop looking at just what's right in front of you. Look up and see where you're going.. Quick hacks to generate more revenue NOW will lead to more technology debt.
