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

    Pros

    - Interesting and innovative tech. - No micromanaging - Teams trust you to get work done as needed. - Benefits are great! Unlimited pto, excellent health/dental/vision, 401k, share options, etc. - Work life balance is great. Crunch time during times, but that is expected and not often. - Starting to become a large tech company with the acquisitions and consolidated platforms. Great time to join!

    Cons

    - With scale, communication and transparency becomes difficult to maintain. - Management is working on the point above.

    Advice to Management

    - Great job listening to employees. Really appreciate taking action on our feedback.

    I worked at Amobee full-time

    Pros

    Tons of young employees, often lunch is ordered for meetings, very lose environment.

    Cons

    I thought much more of this company, but it is all just good marketing. for a mediocre product. TONS of young employees, not enough in-office leadership to ensure sense of urgency for projects. Start up company grew too fast, they had to fire a bunch of people in 2019 because they overspent and did not hit their marks, including C-level executives. One of the incentives of this company was internal growth, none was...

    I have been working at Amobee full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Company continues to advance and acquire really great tech and teams – I'm on the tech & product side - one of the best DSPs in terms of function and capabilities and Videology brings TV and what’s needed to win - you have to be able to serve the broadcaster/supply side. Acquisitions and integrations of this size are complex and hard on the org, as while having excellent tech, both companies acquired were executing...

    Cons

    Change is the only constant – so if you don’t like change– don’t work in adtech. We're essentially a start-up at scale, so also expect to commit the hours and hard work.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on culture and building one team.

    Pros

    Amazing tech and people - enormous opportunities in figuring out TV and the convergence of TV and digital and having the tech to do so (which we now have with Videology) . Without the broadcaster and supply piece of linear TV, other DSPs will simply not have an offering that can compete on Amobee's level. Very smart, hard working team. The vast majority of the people at Amobee are happy and positive, but the changes...

    Cons

    Expect to put in long hours at times and a fast rate of change, but you will be working with great people.

    Advice to Management

    Very proud of our support and advocacy for women in tech and leadership and a CEO who leads by example. Amobee has acquired some great people and technology, but with it brought some negative tonality (understandably with acquisition and changing environment), continue to focus on ensuring the right people are here for the right reasons - TO WIN - and work in the spirit of collaboration.

    I have been working at Amobee full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The company appears to put a lot of money into "culture" events. Fun and easygoing co-workers. Sweet office and LOTS of food. Trusting managers that don't micromanage (I'm sure this differs between departments).

    Cons

    A clear divide between upper management and entry-level employees - seems like there is a huge pay gap. Some people complain that it is cliquey. Slow processes with certain "required" approvals. Top people are slow to make announcements/ changes which leads to stagnation and frustration.

    Advice to Management

    Hire people who are "activators" and get things done! Keep the energy up! Be genuine.

    I worked at Amobee full-time

    Pros

    Fun events as it is in the marketing industry - get to go to client events and holiday parties

    Cons

    There is not strong leadership and the company does not have a vision for their future. They do not invest in management training and their recent re-branding efforts only made clients more confused on what they offer within digital marketing. There is a toxic environment and high turnover - would look at other companies in the adtech industry before joining this team.

    Pros

    Some serious momentum is building and tech team is buzzing as we've started to see the progress from the acquisitions of Turn & Vid which took a bit. Amobee had 2 big announcements - ITV and Univision for addressable and linear which are game changers and taking the company to a new level. Newer to the TV tech side, and the technologies are complex and interesting to work on - how to you bring digital insights...

    Cons

    Not gonna lie, culture integration was rough at first and a lot of negativity around coming together and changes that were made, but that is done and there has had marked improvement

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on TV/video - real differentiation in a space of see of sameness and kudos on getting those deals done

      Pros

      Loved the company and the people. Been on massive trajectory and transition from media and platform (now +TV) and happy to see it coming together for these folks. Committed CEO and leadership and overall team, solid product and tech. Carving out a good niche in a crowded landscape by going after linear and TV. Overall fun office culture, work hard/play hard. Office dynamics can be quite different based on location...

      Cons

      integrations have been somewhat taxing on both tech and culture as there was resistance to buy in as one team but smoothing out.

      Advice to Management

      grateful for the time here and rooting for the team from the sidelines. continue to focus on becoming one team. perhaps more cross team /office meetings or connections.
