    Pros

    Aside from the variety of work assignments, the people are wonderful, and this includes management. The company is very people oriented and they follow through on that. Bill Wise has implemented a set of core values and one of those is fun. We have yoga classes, monthly lunches, and various company events throughout the year. The management listens to ideas and will make every effort to guarantee a positive and learning work environment.

    Cons

    Challenges as with most jobs is the ability to find the time to get all the work done. But on the other hand, that is good, as there is never a dull moment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice is to continue doing what you are doing. The effort to provide leadership and maintain a high level of morale has paid off.

    Pros

    Mediaocean has the best company work life/culture I've ever worked at. I've worked at many other large companies where the upper management and even supervisors didn't care about employee well-being. That's not the case here. I feel comfortable chatting with all levels of management including CEO, Directors, SVP's and VP's. Tremendous room for growth, and encouraged between departments. Management is ALWAYS trying to improve, expand and listen to employee needs and recommendations. Perks are awesome, including on-site manicures/massages once a week, as well as weekly workout classes such as Yoga & Zumba to promote employee health! Overall, hands down the best company I've ever been a part of.

    Cons

    I have no cons to report.

    I have been working at Mediaocean full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Mediaocean begins and ends with people - I work with people that I want to be around day in and day out. They are intelligent, driven and collaborative. It's a high energy environment and the dynamic media industry. The tone is set from at the executive level - an entrepreneurial spirit where we work hard and have fun. Goals and vision for the company are shared with all employees and notable happenings are communicated through e-mail, company wide meeting and weekly updates.

    There is a genuine effort to provide a positive working environment and perks to folks - a wellness series, yoga, zumba, perks program, company breakfasts and a perks program.

    New office space rocks!

    Cons

    I have no cons to report.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Folks really appreciate the open line of communication on company initiatives, goals and news via all hands and updates and the management team's presence in the office. Keep it up!

    Pros

    This is truly a cool place to work and you will indeed work, but you will not do it alone. Collaboration and teamwork is woven into the DNA of Mediaocean. Whether you are in a corner office or a cubicle, the exchange of knowledge flows freely between employees and customers. To that end, the company does an outstanding job recruiting and hiring talented individuals that will excel in our dynamic environment. Mediaocean isn't all work and no play though, there are many "perks", feeling tired or stressed take advantage of in house yoga classes, a massage, or get a mani/pedi. Other things to look forward to are company sponsored breakfasts, onsite happy hours, Foosball/Ping Pong tournaments, and an overall amazing work-space. You won't regret becoming part of Team Mediaocean.

    Cons

    No designated sick/bereavement time offered

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overall I think that you are doing a great job, to ensure that you stay in touch with the pulse of the employee conduct more surveys or provide a way for anonymous feedback.

    I have been working at Mediaocean full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Work with lots of smart, friendly, super helpful people. Great, fun environment, and challenging work in an interesting industry.
    Company offers lots of perks for employees - great events/parties, happy hours, etc. Beautiful office space!
    Management encourages a work/life balance - almost unheard of at so many places!

    Cons

    For all the perks, a lot of benefits have also been reduced/eliminated... i.e there is no retirement benefit anymore (no 401k matching contributions, or profit sharing plan of any kind), healthcare premiums have become super expensive as it appears the company is covering a lot less of the premium.

    Furthermore, raises/salary increases are becoming more and more rare. If you're taking/reducing benefits, raises should help offset that for your employees. So much money seems to be spent on the office space and company perks, but a decent raise could really make employees feel valued.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer raises to employees. Offer real opportunities for advancement.
    Keep up the good work with the better communication from management - quarterly all hands, etc.
