    I have been working at Amobee full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It's got great technology and lucrative business opportunities. So far for the past year the results have been exemplary. The acquisition of Turn was in fact one of those rare Silicon Valley stories...a success! There's momentum and if execution stays tight, the successes will keep coming.

    The people are great. Friendly, cooperative, and smart. So many hallway discussions led to product features (especially since hallways are whiteboards that people just starting sketching on). Can't ask for a better team to work with.

    Cons

    Work/life balance could be better. This is true of most small companies punching above their weight, so to speak. Having said that, I still have weekends and I can take time off for vacations.

    Need better video conferencing system. A global company running on low-resolution Google Meet is not really ideal.

    Advice to Management

    Set clear vision and goals for the company.

    Pros

    I would highly recommend working for Amobee! It is so excited to be part of an organization with a brilliant and fearless female CEO leader! It is inspiring to work with her and see her passion for this company make great things happen.

    The office itself is a showstopper. Recently renovated and has company provided snacks, cold brew coffee, etc. In your free time its fun to challenge co-workers to a ping pong match, basketball, arcade, video game or shuffle board match! There are countless culture events in and out of the office including:
    - Themed office events (Halloween activities, Thanksgiving potluck, White Elephant Holiday Exchange, etc.)
    - In-office chair massage days
    - Birthday wheel spins where you have a chance to win $1000 CASH!
    - Happy Hours at local breweries and locations
    - Annual events to bring your family/significant other – Summer Family Picnic & Holiday Party

    On top of all the extras above, the benefits are great too:
       - Benefit Packages are top notch - full medical/dental coverage with $0 out of pocket, and optional additional coverage if wanted
       - Stock Options
       - Potential for Bonuses
       - Flex Vacation

    Overall it is a great place to start or grow and develop your career!

    Cons

    The office could use a few more conference rooms for private calls since everyone works in an open space.

    Advice to Management

    Keep empowering your employees, and they will rise to the occasion!

    Pros

    You get regular paychecks and free t-shirts. This place is a lot like high school, complete with pep rallies. If you wish to return to your high school days, you will enjoy working here.

    Cons

    Generally, every department is dysfunctional. Look to senior management and the turnover rate to judge the health of the organization.

    There is no strategy.

    Pros

    Talented engineers and great technologies. At least the engineering (including engineering management team) side looks promising. A lot of new products are releasing.

    Cons

    Culture has been a little different from Turn. I prefer Turn's culture.

    Pros

    - Great place to work
    - The company is heading in the right direction with a technology stack that is superior to many other DSP and social companies in the space
    - Like all mergers the first few months can be hard but the combined companies, Turn & Amobee, have really hit stride
    - Culture is great as is pay and benefits
    - Resources and tools needed as an engineer are great and the management does really care about what you need to get projects completed

    Cons

    - No major cons. Just transitional stuff post merger but that is hashed out.

    Advice to Management

    - Continue to be an industry leader with the best technology
    - Keep the great benefits coming
    - As much transparency about future as possible
