    Pros

    They have smart people. Good benefits. Dogs in the office. Food in the office. Very open about status of company

    Cons

    They claim they want smart people, but what they really want is line engineers. If you have a different opinion than the tech leads, they won't listen to you. Just shut you down. Too many egos.

    It's way too top heavy.

    I worked at Intent Media

    Pros

    -Everyone is very inclusive and nice, it's a very close community which is really nice.
    -The company has seen a great deal of success and is constantly building their partnerships
    -Very relaxed atmosphere where you can pretty much do whatever you'd like as long as you get your work done
    -They are very good to their employees and offer up plenty of great perks for a startup

    Cons

    -Due to the very startupy nature, a lot of the roles and the company itself aren't very structured
    -Feedback culture can often be passive aggressive and not entirely constructive
    -While the company has a great product and wishes to expand out of the travel space, the tech industry grows fast and they are really quite pigeonholed into the travel space
    -Very little room for real growth (outside of title and pay bumps)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continued learning and training is really important, many people feel stagnant in their roles.

    I worked at Intent Media full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Intent Media runs a very well organized engineering team. They apply some agile practices in a pragmatic manner.

    Employees enjoy flexible work hours, top-notch equipment, and the ability to demonstrate their work to the broader company.

    Cons

    As an advertising company, Intent Media's business is dependent on a small number of large partnerships, which sometimes makes it difficult to truly innovate with the product.

    I have been working at Intent Media full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - The people: Surround by smart, down-to-earth, multifaceted, open people that are interested in the company and in growth.
     - The product: Thoughtful approach to what is built. Products that work, have tons of future growth, and you're proud to stand behind.
     - Openness: Lots of transparency into company goals, what's going well and what's not, and how we can change things.
     - Culture: Fun, vibrant, relaxed place to work.

    Cons

    - Growing fast (both as individuals and as a company), which is as challenging as it is exciting. It's not a slow tour in a Cadillac, it's a start up. Be prepared for bumps in the road at these speeds.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Keep the dialogue flowing. Doubling, tripling, quadrupling the number of people is a HUGE challenge. Need to maintain an environment in which people are comfortable sharing ideas as to how to navigate that growth.
