    I worked at Quantcast full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The culture encourages innovation through elaborate hackathons and recognition.
    Good SWE technical level.
    RTB is interesting and hot. Quantcast is positioned well with good ML and big data tech.
    Good amount of internal promotions to leadership positions.
    The environment is somewhat similar to Google, energetic and dynamic. A number of Quantcast employees came from Google, a number of former Quantcast employees are now at Google.

    Cons

    There is pressure and stress from strong competition in the Adtech space. RTB is a 24x7 business and the technology is fairly new and evolving quickly. It can get a bit intense.

    Everyone you work with is extremely humble but are among the best and brightest in their individual fields. The senior leadership cultivates a people first culture and focuses on people and product.

    Cons

    Nothing - I love it

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing! It is fantastic to be apart of such a great company and have a product that is a leader in digital advertising.

    I worked at Quantcast (less than an year)

    Pros

    Culture of company is warm and supportive while still being entrepreneurial with a lot of opportunities to make an impact through side projects or new initiatives.

    Cons

    Clear schism between operations and R&D, but that is resolving itself over time with management initiatives.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up!

    A great place to work at. A lot of opportunities to grow and contribute, and a lot of challenging work on a day-to-day basis. Smart and pleasant people around.

    The company grew at the rapid rate and there's a bit of uncertainty in the company goals and directions, as well as a lack of clearly defined roles.

    Pay more attention to the career goals of employees.

    I worked at Quantcast

    Pros

    Great people to work with every day, very invested in sales people with tons of sales training from good peple, sales culture is pretty typical of any start up - ABC!

    Cons

    Pay is not at par with other tech companies, sales leadership leaves a lot to be desired

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    the constant switching to different KPI's every quarter leads people to believe you don't know what you're doing

    Pros

    Hats off to Konrad, who built a spectacular Team from top to bottom. I wish that other companies, big or small, will follow your example. This is the future.

    Cons

    I tried to think of a negative comment but could not come up with anything. Of course no company is perfect. There are always some flaws and loose ends. But, these shortcomings are so insignificant that's not even worth mentioning.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't ever change the management style. But always keep an eye of ineffective and horrible bosses. These people will ruin what you've started.

    I have been working at Quantcast (more than an year)

    Pros

    -Positive and encouraging work environment
    -Ability to make change happen and see the impact
    -If you're up for the challenge, there's so much to learn
    -I'm proud to work for Konrad
    -Mmmm lunch and snacks!

    Cons

    -Moves quickly, which is great, until you're overworked and under-resourced
    -Things aren't always transparent, and inside knowledge is container to a small, select circle
    -HR is pretty old school, and prioritizes paperwork over innovative benefits and career development found in most tech firms

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Invest in T&D for people BESIDES sales people
    -Pick up your heels on hiring our C-level staff please. People feel directionless

    Pros

    Almost everyone who works here is smart, friendly and fun! I can actually say I love my co-workers.

    Cons

    Upper management and middle management seems all over the place. Some of them are strategic and some of them totally suck and should have been fired months ago.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop hiring so quickly, stop creating all of these management layers, there are too many cooks in the kitchen right now.
