    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

    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.

    I worked at Quantcast full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    - Free food: breakfast, lunch, and dinner, drinks & snacks, beer carts & happy hour food
    - Pool and ping pong table

    Cons

    - Lack of engineering resources, always hard to get projects prioritized unless it's a top "priority", but I guess that happens at every company
    - Micro-management (depends which department you work in)
    - Lack of career growth

    Pros

    Strong product, Strong Vision, Good training, Crowded space but they are in the process of changing the voice of the brand, tremendous upside and opportunity with the product and offering, the company will be successful....

    Cons

    Pros

    If you do well, you get promoted relatively quickly. There are lots of new initiatives for you spearhead and establish yourself amongst your coworkers.

    Cons

    Things move fast and can get chaotic. If you get anxiety from "not knowing what to do," this isn't the place for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Share more about the long term vision for the company. I feel that a disruptive shift needs to take place for us to become a billion dollar company. What would that look like?

    I worked at Quantcast

    Pros

    Lots of fun events. Really easy to get to know people here. Flat hierarchy. If you have an idea, you can go out and do it. Management cares a lot about keeping people happy and it shows.

    Konrad and his senior management team are amazingly talented and caring people. I would not bet against them.

    Cons

    Be wary of the reviews you see here. They explicitly ask their employees to review them on Glassdoor so the reviews are likely biased.

    The culture of the sales team is exerting a stronger and stronger influence on the culture of the company as a whole. This may be a good thing or bad thing depending on where you sit.

    Company is growing fast so you may be placed under a mediocre to bad line manager who has little experience managing people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure the sales team culture does not dominate the entire company's culture.

    Pros

    The scale we deal with is mind boggling and that makes otherwise simple problems require innovation. Every engineer has the opportunity to design and implement a lot of fun pieces of software. Employees are generally all A-players in their domain and extremely technical.

    Cons

    the rtb world is extremely fast paced and the company moves at breakneck speed, so if you are the kind of developer who likes a nice stree-free 9-5 work week this isn't the place.

    Pros

    great if you are an engineer, and challenging technical problems to work on

    Cons

    corporate sales team feels boiler room ish. old head of corporate sales ruled by fear and was only about 'call blitzes' (plus he was good at offending people, whilst oddly being charming to the rest of the company)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    maybe figure out a way to be less of a commoditized adtech vendor and a true partner. nobody cares about the 'first-party data' slogan.. it's way overused in the industry
