Pros

Quantcast is best for having: - brilliant minds & expertise - amazing products - opportunity to learn from superiors how to deal with professional challenges - location - fun (company events, happy hours)

Cons

Sometimes, your work has to be delivered on a short term notice, due to the speed with which the changes occur in a start-up environment

    Pros

    - really big data (we log in excess of 400,000 events per second) - high growth and innovation (we're rapidly moving into fully real-time computation) - opportunity to work with very smart people - plenty of recognition for good work

    Cons

    In terms of your work priorities, you can sometimes be pulled in several directions at once. But then again, it's a small company and still retaining its startup atmosphere, so I think this is to be expected.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to spur innovation by creating incentives for people to take charge and innovate. Continue to promote inter-term communication

    Pros

    There are a lot of smart people working at a lot of good companies, but what has made Quantcast different is the level of genuine cooperation among very talented individuals around common goals. This is much harder said than done. The result is that it's clear what you're working on and why. There is a great sense of purpose and optimism at Quantcast to carry out the company's shared vision. There's a good balance between senior and junior talent.

    Cons

    Quantcast is transitioning from a small to a mid-sized company. There's some legacy that come with that but the management is visible in trying to adapt to the typical cultural and communication challenges that come with that. It's also a fast-growing company which means that there's far more immediate opportunity than resources sometimes allow. Overall, decisions are handled well but does mean having to be creative within constraints.
