    I have been working at Millennial Media full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    - fast growing industry
      - office is located in a great part of the city
      - most co-workers are intelligent and hard working
      - there are some good leaders here, however the very top of the ladder is negatively impacting their ability to lead

    Cons

    - stress level is unhealthy
      - executive team does not care to understand day to day efforts of individual contributors
      - the sales team runs the company - tech and other teams are driven by the wishes and desires of sales for better or worse... in the past year + it hasn't worked out well
      - inexplicable leadership decisions
      - poor infrastructure in terms of existing technology
      - inconsistent executive leadership
      - lack of transparency and cohesive communication from the top

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are handing over the keys to the company to employees from another company that was recently acquired. How did the numbers for that company compare to MM? How dependent was that company on one client? Are most of these employees located elsewhere? .... Why would you think this is a good idea? Have more respect for the leaders and employees that got you to where you are.

    Create products that work and function as planned. This will keep sales from selling things that don't work (or just making it up as they go).. it will also keep the other teams from having to put out fires with duct tape on an hourly basis.

    Try to improve the work life balance. There are people working here that are stressed to the point of it impacting their health on a daily basis. Sometimes it just takes consistent executive leadership and understanding. Also, culture isn't free breakfast... it's much more than that. Figure it out.

    Cue the reply to this post from someone at MM within the next 7 days. When you see an obviously pro-MM post after a recent negative one... it wasn't real. FYI.

    Pros

    Fun atmosphere to work in, company is growing at a rapid rate, good location, causal dress

    Cons

    The future is uncertain since this is a start-up company which can be a good and bad thing depending on what you're looking for.
