    I have been working at Adknowledge full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    In a great industry - social & video advertising. Great platform and ambitious plans for the future, including all sorts of innovation with data. Work hard, play hard culture with very supportive work colleagues. We are One Team.

    Cons

    Long hours and high expectations. I think all/ most of the negative reviews on Glassdoor were written by ex employees who were let go because they didn't fit in - not intelligent enough, not hard working enough or too political.

    Advice to Management

    Try to avid hiring the under performers, rather than hiring them and then letting them go a few months later.

    Pros

    Constant churn. Hire and fire mentality. Definite boys club culture. Heavy drinking. Expect to be on-call 24/7.

    Cons

    Dodgy, semi-legal, has been sued for sex discrimination and is still an issue at company. CEO is a known predator for young female interns and employees.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to shag the interns

      Pros

      Some of the people are friendly.

      Cons

      - This place will absolutely suck the life out of you. It is nothing but a toxic environment. I started interviewing after 2 months in, but then decided to try and stick it out for longer. - No innovation or solid product offering. Zero differentiator from their hundreds of competitors. Typical smoke & mirrors sell with no value proposition for brands. - Too many empty suits and dead weight across all departments, primarily...

      Pros

      Great company culture but you will always feel "less than" as a woman due to the "good old boys" cultural mentality.

      Cons

      If you are a woman, you will be paid less than your male counterparts even when you negotiate aggressively and, if you manage to get raised or promoted, your male counterparts will also be promoted simultaneously.

      Advice to Management

      Be more transparent with staff, and more fair and inclusive to female employees who outperform their male colleagues for less pay.
