    Pros

    Good place to learn the publisher side of the business. Like most all companies in this industry, there is great culture, great people. As well as the usual digital advertising culture gimmicks such as: happy hours, free food, ping pong table, rec lounge.

    Cons

    Compensation. Across all departments, the sentiment from my co workers was that we were all underpaid and under-appreciated. Poor planning both financially and strategically. This is not the only ad tech company with this issue. Lacks structure with regards to hiring, career progression. Sales and account management best practices / processes / benchmarks seemed to change every 6 months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think long term. Create formal processes for all aspects of daily business operations, and stick to them. Invest more in your employees, not only in compensation but also by putting more time and thought into the hiring process. Build the company from the bottom up not from the top down.
