I worked at Tapjoy full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Market leader in it's space. Great offices. Seems to be putting more structures in place for Tapjoy to run more efficiently in the future.

Cons

There's been lots of turmoil at the top. Speaking from someone who was in engineering a lot of the best people have left. There was a takeover of engineering by the Boston office. The culture is engineering has become more corporate, more ego-driven, less collaborative. Tapjoy used to have a great start-up culture with really great people. Tapjoy is now a mid-size company that is much more corporate, less like a start-up. The top leadership has completely changed in the last year. They seem like they want to fundamentally change the Tapjoy culture.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't lose what made Tapjoy successful if you want to build it for the long run. However, it feels more like they are just gearing up the company to be acquired.

    Pros

    There are, or were, a lot of bright people in the company but in recent weeks they seem to be acknowledging the rapid deterioration of the culture and are seeking new opportunities.

    Cons

    Cronyism and poor decisions by under-skilled middle managers has resulted in a teams of immature, inexperienced, and all around lackluster employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's time to clean house.
