Overall, a great company to work for.

Online Ad Operations Manager (Former Employee) Detroit, MI

ProsEmployee reviews, regular business reviews by management, technology upgrades/investments. Management consistently looks for ways to improve business and revenue. There is also a sense that management has genuine regard for employees.

ConsCan be highly political and tends to be staffed a bit too lean. This inhibits the best possible performance from most employees. Communication between business units tends to happen in silos. The political nature can also prohibit them from addressing areas of concern that could better benefit all.

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to conduct employee surveys and take meaningful action against results.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
