I worked at PointRoll

Pros

You learn a lot.
There are some great people at this company.
PR is one of the leaders in the space.
You will know all the ins and outs of online advertising.

Cons

Long hours
Lack of technical support in general when you are doing something that is different or out of process.
Account Managers are worked so hard that they get very angry and upset. Management just burns and churns them. From a sales perspective this is hurtful for your clients and reduces repeat sales due to dissatisfied clients.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take a longer and more strategic look at the business. You are profitable now but eventually someone is going to eat your lunch.

    Pros

    The people that work at PointRoll are unique and are the only reason that most non-sales, non-executives stay at PointRoll. The folks there are really great workers and support each other and those on other teams for the most part. The team is young and full of energy, ideas and fun.

    Cons

    Senior Management has no clue what they are doing!! They succeed inspite of themselves, the biggest problem is that Senior Management and the Sales team are driven by greed and will sell anyone down the river in order to make a buck. No one on the senior management team has "paid their dues" with PointRoll and therefore they take no accountability for killing the goose that laid the golden egg. They abuse the Account, Operations and Technology teams on a daily basis, all in the name of the client. The company is run with a staff that is only 3/4 the size it should be for the volume of business that is brought in, and the technology enhancements are never fully tested prior to major releases adding to headaches for the tech and ops teams. Look for PointRoll to start to lose market share to companies like FlashTalking etc... It will be nice to see what happens when the Senior Management and Sales team has to actually fight for sales, when this finally happens, look for PointRoll to disappear very quickly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You all should be ashamed of yoursleves and how you treat your hard working employees and management team, you set everyone there up to fail while you all line your pockets with cash!! It is very sad that you people are as greedy as you are and that you will never fully appreciate that work that your team does on a daily basis.

    I have been working at PointRoll

    Pros

    Great people, great client list. It is nice to know that in this environment you aren't the only one dedicated to your job. Through hard work and knowing the other employees are working just as hard makes you feel it is worth it.

    Cons

    Lack of knowledge throughout the offices. Main offices makes changes monthly and doesn't inform remote offices. Decisions that are made don't don't seem to have a rhyme or reason.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just because you are good at your current position doesn't mean you know how to manage people. Understand how to give guidance instead of firing them.
