Good product, good people

Current Employee - Executive in Redwood City, CA
Current Employee - Executive in Redwood City, CA

I have been working at YuMe full-time (less than an year)

Pros

YuMe figured out what works after a few pivots. The company is growing like crazy, is backed by Tier 1 VCs, and hires smart people. What's not to like? Heard that the culture used to be so-so, but so far so good!

Cons

Lots of growing pains despite having been around for nearly a decade. Lots of expensive executives for a company this size

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus on growth and retain talent. Encourage more fun. Have never seen anyone use the basketball court

    I worked at YuMe full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    -Great coworkers (below mgmt level)
    -Free Caltrain pass
    -Free lunch once a week, fridge with snacks and drinks daily

    Cons

    -Product fails to compare to competitors
    -Engineering team is overwhelmed with work so software is has many bugs
    -Most mangers are unqualified to mange or do not know the industry
    -Promotions come by way of politics not hard work
    -Many "mangers" only mange on person, middle mgmt = 1>1>1>3-more.
    -Exec team is looking to be bought out instead of working to get better
    -Pay doesn't compare to many other companies but the company name is great on the resume

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a step back to review management team. Almost all of them are unqualified when you actually speak to them about their job duties. Pass work over because they do not know not because they are delegating.
