I worked at Mediaocean full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Started an employee equity plan before I left, which was great. I was at the company for 12 years and saw more energy and focus in the past 2 years than the previous 10 combined.

Cons

Executives clearly focusing on digital advertising. Question on what becomes of the traditional staff.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Your focus is spot on. Leadership is 10 times better than previous DDS leadership. Just don't forget where your bread is buttered (meaning, where your profits come from today)-- its not in Prisma.

    I worked at Mediaocean full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Company is positioned on the cutting edge of ad tech. Solid employee benefits, ESOP, etc.

    Cons

    For a cutting edge tech company, management is way too bureaucratic and clique-oriented. Many, many disillusioned employees by the actual product deployed into the field. Too many bugs, lack of product support or even interest. This led to many less than satisfied customers who didn't have interest in continuing relationships. All this led to a downward spiral with little nor speedy resolution from management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Critical need for better vision with regard to product and go to market message. If you're committing to deliver, make sure the product is actually capable of doing so. You only get so many times at bat before customers tire of problems with their campaigns' performance and the porous explanations that were provided. You cannot continuously change your market position and message just to cover product insufficiencies..

    I have been working at Mediaocean full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    People are great-- very smart, hard working, willing to help
    HR onboarding was excellent-- best of my career
    CEO is open, accessible, personable, communicates often, and shares goals
    Company feels like a family-- breakfast, events, all hands, happy hours.

    Cons

    CEO is great, but his 2 presidents are not as approachable and open...
    Company can probably move faster
    Some antiquated technology needs to be updated

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bill is a leader, the rest of senior management should be leaders as well
