    I have been working at Mediaocean full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Fun atmosphere, great amenities such as shower rooms, game room equipped with Xbox, Foosball table and PacMan, really cool cafe and collaboration spaces. Although we have flexible work arrangements, I'd rather come into the new space everyday.

    Cons

    I can't think of any at this time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the fun culture, can't wait for our holiday party!

    Keep up the good work, really moving in a positive direction to promote and drive change for women in technology.

    Pros

    I love the weekly yoga and Zumba classes! We also started a walking club and it has been really fun to see the city at lunch time.We even had a speaker come to the office to promote positive health and lifestyle changes. I really feel that the company cares about me.

    Cons

    Nothing to report at this time. Waiting to see how everything settles from the move.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep listening to employees and taking our feedback. It definitely shows that you are listening to input and following up.

    1. Keep doing what you are doing

    I have been working at Mediaocean as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    The people are really nice, flexible, and funny. Management makes an effort to present themselves as approachable. Compared to other software companies, there's a great work/life balance in the sense that there's no ball pit to try and make you stay 19 hours. There are free breakfasts and good parties though...that's important.

    Cons

    Not sure there are any straight up cons, so much as a Mediaocean is a standard company, and embodies all the issues that come with that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company values are in theory a very nice sentiment. In practice I find the upper level management tries maybe too hard to share them, and the come off a bit disingenuous.

    Pros

    Great place to start. Fun company events. Always opportunity to work on different projects, never boring. People are helpful, if they don't know an answer to your question they will try to help you find the person who does.

    Cons

    Pay is low for the volume of work expected. Not enough opportunity to move around to different teams, or promotion opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Higher compensation for existing employees, more growth opportunities.

    Pros

    People are GREAT
    Company benefits are good
    Breakfast, parties, extras are wonderful
    Summer fridays & philantropy days are cool
    CEO is approachable
    New marketing looks great

    The office is sometimes quiet, particularly on fridays
    Career advancement can be lacking as the company is mature
    Although management is iinvesting and trying to update, products are antiquated and support tickets show it

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look to promote from within!
    Keep focusing on culture, its important
    get out on the floor more and stop hiding in conference rooms

    I worked at Mediaocean full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Started an employee equity plan before I left, which was great. I was at the company for 12 years and saw more energy and focus in the past 2 years than the previous 10 combined.

    Cons

    Executives clearly focusing on digital advertising. Question on what becomes of the traditional staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your focus is spot on. Leadership is 10 times better than previous DDS leadership. Just don't forget where your bread is buttered (meaning, where your profits come from today)-- its not in Prisma.

    Pros

    People are great-- very smart, hard working, willing to help
    HR onboarding was excellent-- best of my career

    Company feels like a family-- breakfast, events, all hands, happy hours.

    Cons

    CEO is great, but his 2 presidents are not as approachable and open...
    Company can probably move faster
    Some antiquated technology needs to be updated

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bill is a leader, the rest of senior management should be leaders as well

    Pros

    Free breakfast, great events, good work life balance, decent products, ez commute, flex time and time off policies, cool and caring co-workers.

    Cons

    It is a ok, middle of the road company, not bad but definitely not great. There are some bad managers, old products and the work can be tedious and unappreciated. Very little WFH which sucks. Management does care about the company, but not really the people, we are along for the ride. They are trying very hard to change the reputation of the company. Some marketing people were brought in to change the image of the company and CEO. It is common knowledge around MO they have been writting fake GD reviews, as there were so many bad reviews from before.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop trying to sell us and start to genuinely care about the people.
