    Pros

    Can't think of any

    Cons

    Challenging work culture, demanding management, superficial and catty people, clicky, non differentiated products, stuck in the 90's, not innovative, very weak company overall

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a positive corporate culture and hire smart innovative people to advance the company and product into the 21st century

    Pros

    Amazing culture that doesn't exist elsewhere.

    A bit too lax, promotions based on seniority rather than performance and dedication.

    Show up to work more, take suggestions, really show you're interested in your employees and their concerns.

    I have been working at PointRoll full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Young, collaborative environment
    Lots of opportunities to own your projects

    Cons

    Management needs to wake up and notice when the overall workload is too much
    VERY slow to promote. PointRoll expects you to be on top of your game all the time but they take their time to show their appreciation

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keeping your employees satisfied with their rate of advancement is the key to retention

    It's been a pretty up and down experience at PointRoll. Management is always changing directions which hurts continuity.

    I have been working at PointRoll full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Fast paced, learn a ton, cut your teeth in digital, decent perks, flexible working schedule

    Cons

    Lack of career pathing, pay is not competitive with general digital marketplace, the only thing that is constant is change, heavy middle management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pick a direction and ride it out. Constant pivoting makes it appear that you have no idea what you are doing. Invest in technology.

    Listen to your employees. If they want to be challenged and are trying to learn more, it is your duty to give them the tools.

    I worked at PointRoll full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The PEOPLE, the culture, the money can be fantastic for successful sales peeps....they richly reward A performers (and/or the really lucky)

    Cons

    Long hours. The workload never stops. Your laptop is glued to your hands 24/7. No career growth for most. Once you do your job well they keep you there locked.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve the platform so less hands need to touch the ads
