Work Hard / Play Hard. Lot of room for career growth at a rapidly growing company. Not for the weak of heart.

Pros

Company is growing very quickly, brand becoming a known player in the industry.
Promotions mainly come from within, and as company grows, room for career growth abounds.
Great team of people, young and driven, makes it easy to come to work every day.
You will be working with major brands/companies and be involved in big projects very quickly.
Accountability puts the ball mostly in your court. Excel and the sky is the limit.

Cons

With a company growing so quickly, there are definitely growing pains - which is exciting but not for everyone.
Because everyone is so accountable for their work, this is not the company where you will skate by.

    Pros

    Coworkers are very smart and knowledgeable. If you're interested in learning about different areas, many have great backgrounds and can give you more information. Almost everyone is open to sharing their experiences.

    However, senior members are often overloaded, so you may not get the feedback you need.

    Cons

    They take attendance and now they are going to start 'grading' your code. Management is essentially two-faced, telling you one thing, like, 'we don't want you working here all hours', but then showing and demanding the opposite, such as moving code releases too early, not sufficiently testing the code, and finding scapegoats to fire. The system is buggy and hastily put together and new hires struggle with learning. There are many more new hires than senior members, (who have been pushed out), and there is high turnover. Someone quit after only two days when he saw what was really going on. There is no loyalty from management even if you've done great work for years and the contract also states that they can fire you for any reason.

    It's the recession and they'll use that. And most of the new hires are on visas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop walking around with a metal bat to instill fear in your workers. Stop blaming people when they can't fix problems that you created.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My experience at adMarketplace was both financially and personally rewarding. I felt like a valued member of the team, and that my feedback to management was heard, respected, and most importantly, acted upon. I still visit the office when I am in town, and am warmly received when I do. My advice would be to be even more selective when making hiring decisions, as it takes the right kind of highly motivated and emotionally stable person to work there. That being said, the company has exhibited tremendous growth in a down economy, and management is notably intelligent and strategic minded. I always felt like we were headed in the right direction, and that was proven during my time there and the time since my departure. Overall, I miss working there and highly recommend both the Account Executive position and the company in general to those looking for a challenging next career move.
