    Pros

    Take charge of the full spectrum of mobile marketing tools. They have it all, but it may be too much - a lack of focus has gotten Velti to the point where they don't have a leadership position in any specific area. To get back on top, they have to land new customers and reacquire old ones.

    Cons

    Chapter 11, Chapter 5. They were listed in NASDQ, now they are not listed at all.

    Pros

    The people, everyone I worked with in the trenches were amazing, one of the best teams I ever worked with and I miss working with them.

    Cons

    Management and Greed. This Company had the potential to do great things, BUT in 2011 they made some bad acquisitions and started doing bad business for fast cash that they could not collect, Senior Management loved big bright shiny new things and would pay what they had to to get it, now they can't buy mu house!

    Advice to Management

    Never start a Company again. You are not qualified!

    Pros

    Casual atmosphere in the Atlanta office.

    Cons

    The stock promised as part of the compensation package is completely worthless and now they are being delisted from NASDAQ. Overall, poorly mismanaged.

    Advice to Management

    If this company has any hope, stop hiring mediocre employees that contribute very little. Also, seriously evaluate the remaining employees, look at their actual responsibilities, and whether they're meeting (let alone exceeding) the expectations of their role.

    Pros

    Worked with experts in the mobile ad tech ecosystem. Exposure to working with Fortune 100 brands.

    Cons

    Upper management failed to provide a cohesive vision for the company. The future health of the company is uncertain, as they attempt to sell off assets and reorganize. Wish them the best, but employee morale is low.

    People are smart and kind. They have deep knowledge of the ad space and can provide you with a good understanding of everything. Good people to network with down the road, as well.

    Cons

    Upper management. They wont be making and headlines for an excellent quarter. They also don't seem to understand what works and what we should spend our time on.
