    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!

    A lot of great women in leadership positions. Good opportunities for growth and professional development. Speaking engagements, opportunities to attend WIT conferences, overall supportive work environment.

    Nothing that I can think of.

    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
    2. Make sure you reach out to everyone in the org, not just yourselves.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in New York, NY

    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.

    Culture in the Chicago office is unbearable.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL

    I have been working at Mediaocean

    Pros

    Quarterly bonus opportunities are attractive.

    Cons

    I have never worked in a more unprofessional environment. Management not only lacks knowledge and expertise needed to run a company, but they do not care about the well being of their employees. Employees are put down on a daily basis, and rarely given the tools needed to succeed in regard to training or expectations. The environment is extremely negative and volatile - employees fight, bicker and treat each other poorly on a daily basis and management only adds to the immature behavior. There is never accountability for poor work, or reward for quality work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing will change in this office until critical members of management are made accountable for the poor tone they set for the office. Additional management training is desperately needed. Unprofessional leadership needs to be removed.

    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

    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

    Pros

    Company is positioned on the cutting edge of ad tech. Solid employee benefits, ESOP, etc.

    Cons

    For a cutting edge tech company, management is way too bureaucratic and clique-oriented. Many, many disillusioned employees by the actual product deployed into the field. Too many bugs, lack of product support or even interest. This led to many less than satisfied customers who didn't have interest in continuing relationships. All this led to a downward spiral with little nor speedy resolution from management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Critical need for better vision with regard to product and go to market message. If you're committing to deliver, make sure the product is actually capable of doing so. You only get so many times at bat before customers tire of problems with their campaigns' performance and the porous explanations that were provided. You cannot continuously change your market position and message just to cover product insufficiencies..
