Great company, fast paced, still growing.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
New York, NY

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

ProsIt's a start up so there is time to carve you're own niche among teams.

Everyone is delightful to work with and very motivated.

Technology team is constantly innovating.

ConsStill figuring out their footing in regards to paying sales reps.

I agree that it seems frowned upon to leave at 6 but it's a sales office so that is to be expected. However anyone in sales knows that sales is not a 9-5 job.

Advice to Senior ManagementTake care of your sales team as they are on the front line every day.

– I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Taboola... not so great.

Account Manager (Current Employee)
New York, NY

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

ProsFree Office Food
Fast Paced
Extremely sales driven organization
Business makes money

Cons- Horrible Upper management
- culture is all about selling and you couldn't leave at the designated 6 p.m. dismissal without feeling like a slacker. Their underlying expectation is for you to work over time all the time
Zero Work life balance, yes I understand it's a start up but you should be able to have a personal life too
Did I mention horrible upper management? They do not have a clue in managing teams

Advice to Senior ManagementUpper Management should take into consideration taking training sessions on how to be an effective manager

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Frantic and unorganized startup without adult leadership and direction.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Taboola

ProsHard working development group. Product potential and client satisfaction.

ConsPoor leadership and lack of direction. Very unprofessional and demoralizing corporate culture.

Advice to Senior ManagementIf you are run by an A**hole, your staffs productivity, enthusiasm, and quality of work will suffer. Please read the book written by Robert Sutton, PHD "The No A**Hole Rule". Take care of the management issue and profitability could be achieved.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
