    Pros

    Engineering has a great culture with smart people on small, integrated teams. Process doesn't get in the way of progress. You have a lot of autonomy, especially within the team. When there have been issues, for example, my team needed additional resources, management listened to us and responded promptly. Management, even the execs, are approachable, interested, and don't force any BS on you. They practice transparency more than any other company I've worked at. People are fun but professional. There are employee-created groups like Women of Intent Media and an LGBT group, which meet regularly and are good support. There are hack days periodically which are fun. Good perks in the office - social events, snacks, etc. Also, office dogs.

    Cons

    Not enough office space at 180 Varick, can be pretty cramped. They have acquired a new office though.
    Could use more lower-level managers and leads, there are not enough people to handle small day-to-day concerns.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing.

    Pros

    Smart, friendly people abound. Most everyone really cares about making the company into something great. Food and snacks are on point

    Cons

    It feels like a much larger, bureaucratic organization that it should. It's certainly not a startup anymore, but at the same, it's not a several thousand person organization either. Decision making can be slow (by consensus) and often directives are being pushed down from the top

    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.

    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 Management

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

    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.
