Pros

Mobile usage is on the rise, which puts Millennial directly in the center as the 3rd biggest, and largest independent player in the rapidly evolving mobile advertising space, directly competing with Apple and Google. You have the opportunity to have your skills pushed in directions that won't happen at more established employers, and to network with other motivated people within the space.

Cons

The emperor has no clothes when it comes to the "Millennial Experience;" the benefits are nearly non-existent, change is quick and reactionary, and if you're in IT, you will be in a position to always take the blame, and never the credit.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Quit talking about how great the company, the culture, and its opportunities are, and offer up the benefits that can easily be found elsewhere in the DC/Baltimore area. The IPO's over, and the stock options granted even recent pre-IPO employee hires were nothing to write home about.

You need to clean house on IT management and directly and adequately address low employee morale, which the engagement survey(s) clearly illustrate(d); this does not mean more happy hours, ping pong tournaments, or anything else that does not sufficiently address employee satisfaction.

Technology management hasn't a clue about how their operation is currently run, let alone how it should be run, and is full of toxic managers that only manage up, whom are only interested in pleasing important players in the company, while pushing all the blame and work down, yielding, at times, a pretty pathetic work-life balance.

Take note of the other people within the company, outside of IT, who seemed to be pretty happy, and upwardly mobile.

Millennial could have been a really stellar place to work, but instead, senior management has decided to put their heads in the sand, instead of providing a truly great place to work; they will just say how great the place is over and over as loud as they can, with pretty graphics and gimmicks.
