    Once, a mobile marketing leader

    Director (Former Employee) San Francisco, CA

    ProsTake 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.

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

    Advice to Senior Managementget your stuff together

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Saddest Work Experience of my Life!

    Director (Former Employee) San Francisco, CA

    ProsThe 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.

    ConsManagement 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 Senior ManagementNever start a Company again. You are not qualified!

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

    The entire company has been a sinking ship since I started there over a year ago.

    Product Manager (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA

    ProsCasual atmosphere in the Atlanta office.

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf 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.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great people and learning experience, but low employee morale and uncertain future...

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) San Francisco, CA

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

    ConsUpper 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.
