    Textbook example of how a race to go public blinded and ruined a company.

    I have been working at Millennial Media full-time

    Pros

    Friendly employees and work environment with relatively good brand recognition in the industry. The offices are pretty cool and are located in nice cities.

    Cons

    Lack of leadership. Inability to show that they care about employees (no ESPP or stock grants after initial hire date). Expecting a raise? You'll have to ask for one, and then ask again and again. Shady practices to 'hit the numbers' each quarter. You'll likely stay in your position with your title for 3 years. HR can't figure out how to pay bonuses on time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put your ego aside and replace yourself with somebody who has experience scaling a company.... a lot of people and their families lives depend upon it.

    Pros

    They are in the right business and people get to work on some really cutting edge stuff. It's also a fun work environment where people enjoy themselves.

    Cons

    Management, especially CEO Paul are just atrocious. The talent level is abysmal. I've never worked with so many dumb people before. Paul does nothing of value. He's not involved at all in Sales, Product, Tech. He cares more about what color the walls are painted and which band is going to play at the Christmas party. Sets absolutely the wrong tone for the whole company. Everyone leaves at 5pm, no one really gets startup culture and because of that Google will kick their asses on the long run. Also, their tech truly sucks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Resign, you guys are total jokes and have no business running a company of this size.
