    Pros

    Incredibly smart coworkers, good work/life balance, daily catered lunches, coworkers get along and hang out outside of work, opportunities to travel, metro accessible office, we brew beer in the office, relaxed dress code, biweekly yoga.

    Cons

    Oracle took away Slack, Google mail and calendar. Oracle's email and calendar is awful.

    Product - breadth and depth of data

    Flat structure - respect for expertise and little politics

    Cons

    Interoffice communication could use some improvement. However this year, we've done much better by bringing all offices to headquarters more often.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to drive focus

    Pros

    There is no company yet that can match the data product and doubtful there ever will be as it stands. The tools have saturated the publisher market and the volume of data collected by them will remain unmatched. The unique value prop is a good sales story. The data collected is unreplicable and no competitor has the same data at the same scale. So, that allows sales people to sell to any vertical and industry. Managed service, segment licensing and data licensing are salable products for any seller. The diversity allows sellers to pivot much easier based on where their territory is leaning. Compensation is very fair for an established startup. Management is much more open-door than prior teams. Work between different teams at the company flows much easier and communication likewise is the best it's ever been.

    Cons

    Headquarters is in Virginia and satellite offices are smallish. Sales team is understaffed. Each seller covers WIDE territory which dilutes market brand presence and individual salesperson's resources for each client.

    Pros

    Over the past year the company has gone through a transformation in terms of its product offerings and how it generates revenue. Senior management operates the company with transparency and encourages a collaborative culture. There's plenty of opportunity for professional development if you're willing to learn.

    Cons

    The company should have a higher profile than it does.

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring smart, talented people who are willing to adapt and grow as the company does.

    I worked at AddThis full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Nice working environment (NYC Office). Smart and ambitious tech and sales staff. Free snacks and lunch in the Virginia headquarters. Free snacks in the NYC office.

    Cons

    Goals and focus of "the Add This" "sharing" and "data-mining" product changed from month to month so it was hard to "sell" the benefits of this "free" product to publishers because it collects publisher's data without any revenue sharing. Competition intense from "Share This" "Meebo" and other similar products. Very strong pressure to sell/perform. Smart sales and tech teams but other management less than stellar. Very "cliquey" environment with management aloof to suggestions from seasoned professionals who were not in the "in crowd." Much top management turnover. Real grunt work for many low-level engineers.

    Advice to Management

    The management team has turned over since I left the company (Ramsey McGrory was CEO) so I don't have a sense of their current strengths and weaknesses.

    Pros

    - The work is challenging and fun
    - No micromanagement - everyone is expected to take their responsibilities and run with them
    - Team is really collaborative/ willing to take the time to teach you new things
    - A fairly flat organization which allows you to work with people at all levels in the company
    - Free lunch everyday
    - Great culture - fun outings, team hackathons, celebrations, etc. etc.

    Cons

    Sometimes there is too much "leadership by committee" on making big decisions which drags out the decision making process and results in a lot of unnecessary opinions.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be as transparent as possible - your transparency has created a lot of trust within the organization and makes everyone feel like a much bigger part of the company.
