    I have been working at Intent Media full-time

    Pros

    Office dogs, roof deck so you can work outdoors, extremely talented group of co-workers.

    Cons

    It can be pretty intense at times so you have to make sure you are up for working hard, but in a fun humane culture

    Advice to Management

    Its great that management invests so much in keep employees happy. The new office is a great demonstration of that... by far the best place I've ever worked.

    Pros

    Exec team/founders are incredibly accessible and down to earth. Company vision is clearly articulated and day to day work is always geared toward reaching company goals. Our office facilities and culture are the best I've experienced. The hiring process is designed to discover those who are willing to wear many hats, who are fast learners that acknowledge and work on their weaknesses, and are not afraid to throw a flag when they see broken processes that need to be fixed. Creates a really open, honest work place where you feel in control of your own path. Monthly fireside chats where any employee can anonymously ask our CEO any question they want and he answers honestly.

    Cons

    Like most tech companies, we could work on our overall meeting culture.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on keepin' on. The transparency you provide is unlike anywhere I've been previously and helps understand how day to day actions hit our bottom line.

    Pros

    I've never known a workplace with a better heart. From top to bottom this organization genuinely puts people first and that principle infuses everything that happens here, from hiring forward. Yes there are great perks like unlimited vacation, paid learning budget, frequent company-sponsored outings and parties, free food, and so on, but all of that is meaningless without a spirit of trust, respect and cooperation - that's what makes this place truly special. Also we're doing great, fun, complex work and making lotsa money!

    Cons

    It's still early stage, so ambiguity, uncertainty and a degree of chaos is to be expected - but also huge opportunity.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

    Pros

    Bright, professional and witty colleagues; the most approachable CEO I've ever met (and he's whip smart too); unlimited vacation -- and they actually encourage you to take vacation; awesome office space with a roof deck and superb technology; business transparency, including a total openness about financial standing; exciting international growth

    Cons

    Highly deliberative culture with too much energy wasted preparing ridiculously thorough presentation decks that are only ever seen internally; onboarding for new hires can be rough because the culture is very detail-oriented and this can come as a bit of a shock

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing to empower more people further down in the org chart; fight the urge to become too inward looking

    Pros

    - Company from CEO down works hard but doesn't take ourselves too seriously. We're know that we're not curing cancer! - Complete transparency from leadership to employees - An awesome new office in Soho NYC - Great relationships with many huge online travel companies - A product suite that works for advertisers, publishers, and consumers

    Cons

    - Some leaders are young and have little management experience - Company has enormous analytical horsepower, and as a result we can overanalyze before making decisions

    Pros

    - The people here are great - the hiring process is geared towards recruiting intelligent, collaborative workers. - Big enough to feel stable, but still small enough to feel like your work actually makes a difference. - Work/life balance is generally good - hours are flexible, many teams can work from home when necessary, and the vacation policy has a recommended minimum, but no limit. The philosophy seems to be "you're an adult, do what you need to do as long as you get your work done". - New office space is amazing - multiple kitchens, roof deck, motorized standing/sitting desks. - Senior management is great - incredibly transparent about the company's goals and performance, and they're just as concerned with making the company an awesome place to work as they are with creating a unique, profitable business. - The typical startuppy stuff - Snacks, beer fridge, dog-friendly office (awesome stress reliever),

    Cons

    - Culture can feel a little "live to work" sometimes, but that's a result of hiring motivated people. If you're scared of the occasional 10 hour day this might not be the place for you. The beer fridge softens that blow a little, though. - No 401K plan at the moment, but as the company grows maybe they'll consider one.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe recommend more work/life balance on a daily basis - it's worth asking whether unlimited vacation balances out 10 hour days with rushed working lunches. Otherwise, keep doing what you're doing and don't let the company's awesome culture slip as it grows!
