I have been working at Chartboost full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Insanely good benefits including fully paid family insurance. Positive people, rapid growth, fun technology. The leadership is very transparent and approachable. You wouldn't even know their job title at a glance.

Cons

They are growing faster than it seems they expected and experiencing growing pains. There can be too much work to do as a result.

    I worked at Chartboost full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    All types of problems come at you all the time. The team is composed of people with interesting and relevant backgrounds. The team works incredibly hard to maintain the high level of satisfaction among clients

    Cons

    Occasional confusion as to new product rollouts. Lack of non gaming clients if you are not into games. Multiple offices create confusion at times.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the spirit of the early days in the company! Hire only the smartest people you can find.

    I have been working at Chartboost full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Tons of opportunity to work on various projects at many skill levels - Flexible schedules, fair amount of time off - Lots of talent around - Well organized engineering organization (as of the past 4 months or so) - Cool office - Some really awesome people

    Cons

    - Office politics are bad, it's unclear if any effort is made to acknowledge it or do anything about it - Engineers who become managers do not commit to the role of manager - Extremely rapid hiring growth means spending a disproportionate amount of time training new hires - Folks who have been here a while seem content with mediocre job performance - Distracting work environment (but headphones are usually O.K.) - Excessive waste of electricity (if you're environmentally conscious this is a con) - Unconscious habits: some folks don't know how to separate trash/recycling/compost-or don't care-, leave messes in the kitchens and order things like steaks when they're not even in the office.... hundreds of gallons of water wasted for nothing, in the middle of an extremely bad drought (not to mention the life of that animal).

    Advice to Management

    Reprimand the gossipers and communicate zero tolerance for unprofessional behaviors such as this: I discovered my salary information had been shared by someone with someone else who is not privy to that information. More management training and accountability for your young managers: the workplace can be fun and professional at the same time. Celebrate and reward employees who own their mistakes, take responsibility for their work, and who take initiative and execute. Review the value-add of so many middle managers.
