I worked at Pubmatic full-time for more than a year

Pros

Good platform to learn all about RTB and programmatic advertising. Exposure to various companies in the digital space.

Cons

Very high employee turnover. Some executives are just building their empire and not caring about others employees. Bad work culture and no one is happy. Bringing in the President and the VP of HR did not improve the work culture at all. Company is extremely political and furtive when it comes to changes down the line or anything that is affecting a department-wide group of people.

Beware of the sweet talking recruiting team as you might get trapped. Talk to the ex PM employees and do your own research. Look at the list of all the people who have left in 2012-2013

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Look at other companies work culture and learn. Figure out why everyone is jumping ship. Get rid of politics.

    Pros

    CEO who works hard and has grown the company sets a strong example for others. Opportunity to work on challenging problems in adtech and some large publishers.

    Cons

    Changes in last year by new leadership have negatively impacted morale and employee turnover. Bringing in new president has not helped the company build strong brand and identity in the industry. Company is losing some good clients. No product and technical innovation in the past year and competitors like Rubicon are coming back strong. Engineering organization is bloated and technical architecture is weak compared to competition.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring back the positive energy that existed early last year. Hire smart leaders and managers, not cronies. Become visible in the market. I worked here for over 3 years but for me the fun and excitement was lost in the last 12 months.

    Pros

    It was a good place to initially learn stuff and meet people, Excellent timings and flexible work environment.

    Cons

    > Need to stop saving our heads and start to take risks and innovate in various product areas
    > Concentrate more on generating value in return to the revenue. Generally publishers go behind the VALUE you bring to their assets.
    > Try to inject a positive vibe within the team as its loosing many members because of unsafe environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    PubMatic is a very good place and can be more improved by spreading the openness and positivity within the team like the early days.
