I have been working at Tapjoy

Pros

Some of the top players in engineering, product and marketing are top notch. The product is cool. The market is hot for this type of thing. The office in San Fran is neat. Free snacks, soda. The younger support staff are awesome, very smart and motivated.

Cons

Poor sales management. Lack of vision and clarity of roles are confusing and tough to succeed in. Sales people should be aware of lack of support, and mentality of figure it out yourself. Vision for going public is clouding the culture it once was.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Clear out sales management, start fresh, realign goals that are realistic and attainable given what should be seen as an obvious sign of what the product can bare. Get the culture back to what it once was, encourage new thinking and reward hard work even if it doesn't equate to direct revenue.

    No Direction, Low Morale

    Pros

    - Most all regular employees are smart, friendly, and driven
    - Good work/life balance, liberal work-from-home policy in most departments
    - Strong market leader

    Cons

    - Senior management and execs care more about furthering their own agendas than working for the overall good of the company
    - Early employees are on their way out, or have already left. The company has lost its direction and creative force
    - Current execs (bizdev and marketing) don't actually have a full grasp of their own product(s) and are changing the company culture from one that fosters creativity and innovation to a dull and bureaucratic one

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Marketing and bizdev needs to be restructured, starting from the top. Get people who actually understand the importance of innovation, and remove people who are here mainly to play a political game.
    Tapjoy may be the market leader now, but with the market moving as quickly as it does, any time spent dealing with political shenanigans will be a massive detriment to the overall well being of the company.

    Low morale due to political climate

    I have been working at Tapjoy

    Pros

    Clear industry leader, interesting product and excellent core group of employees who genuinely care about the success of the company. "Work hard play hard" spirit is still going strong and many are still looking out for their colleagues.

    Cons

    Low employee morale across the whole company, lack of cross-department and top-to-bottom communication and executive shortsightedness. Recent trend of firing allegedly underperforming employees and mass exodus of early employees has lead to an uncomfortably political climate, while leaving the core product to inexperienced hands.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Constant changes to corporate focus and strategy is sending mixed message to the employees. Marketing department needs to be cleaned out, starting at the top. Tapjoy grew and succeeded as a product focused company, and it's falling behind trying to be a marketing focused company.
