Great place to work but not for everyone...

(Former Employee)

ProsI enjoyed working at DataXu. Although people can be overworked I felt that management took criticism well and was constantly looking for ways to improve work/life balance and make sure their employees were satisfied. It was definitely a work in progress for them but were trying hard to keep up with the significant and exciting growth of not only the company but the industry as a whole.

ConsDefinitely going through growing pains at the moment. They just couldn't seem to hire the right people fast enough. However, senior management seemed to recognize this issue and was motivated to make working conditions better. If you want to work in a revolutionary and exciting field unfortunately you will have to deal with the cons of being in a company that is trying hard to keep up. Not everyone succeeds or thrives there for various reasons including some managers lack of experience. I believe that is attributed to the fast growth and ambition which can be debilitating for some but also exciting to be part of.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep trying to make employees feel valued, indispensable and jazzed to be part of a growing industry. All people want is a little recognition from time to time. The right people will stay and will be excited to come to work every day.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
