I have been working at Quantcast full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Quantcast does a great job of hiring smart people. Almost everyone who works there, including managment is highly technical. There's a real focus on getting things done without a lot of bureaucratic overhead. Conventional wisdom is always questioned, and using the "industry standard" solution for anything requires making a case that it's still the best way.

Cons

Open plan work environment is noisy and distracting.

    Pros

    1) Cutting edge everything - you can get practical experience in real-time processing, filesystems, hadoop, etc
    2) Awesome people
    3) Good culture- chill but hardworking
    4) Easy to move around if you wish to join a different team
    5) Great perks - catered lunch and dinner
    6) Great location

    Cons

    1) For some people it might be a bit too corporate, by which I mean it is not a tiny startup anymore and there do need to be some 'processes' which is deadly for those who like zero constraints on commits, etc that you might get at a small startup

    2) I think people can be a little too focused on compensation as a reason to work and put in extra effort. That sounds naive, but in some places the internal reason might be 'wanting to change the world' etc but in the internet advertising space, that is just not going to be the case

    3) Friends/Steve Yegge/family potentially regard the company as not a Good Thing to be doing / kind of sketchy. It really is not (although I admit the personal bias) but you may have some awkward conversations

    Pros

    - Positive & Collaborative Sales Management to guide you & take your drive to win to a higher level
    - What you sell ACTUALLY works in delivering new customers to our clients so you have proof that our technology works for their online advertising campaigns
    - If you ask questions of your teammates, they are happy to help & share the buzzwords for verticals & success with other clients
    - You will be part of a company that is flipping the traditional advertising model on its' head

    Cons

    - Branding of our company needs to be improved
    - Other teams like operations should have more people to assist w/ the sales team
    - the process of getting new clients on board can be improved
