    Pros

    Incredible technology team and group of hyper-driven smart collaborative people
    Excellent technology and large supporting engineering team
    Excellent senior technology leadership with forward thinking, inspiring CTO and senior engineering team
    Employees are highly committed to the organization's mission and each other and their clients and partners, people come together to problem solve.
    Exciting, challenging, evolving, fasting moving marketing technology sector. Change is the only constant. Requires agility and adaptability and the ability to thrive in a changing, fast paced environment. Ultimately, great opportunity to lead industry and create dynamic-game changing technology.
    Acquisition of Turn by Amobee has taken the company and the tech to the next level, extremely positive outlook. What the team has accomplished 6 months post integration is phenomenal.

    Cons

    Like any growing tech company, resources can be limited.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the momentum and setting the bar high on expectations and skill set. Hire people who thrive in embracing change and dynamic environments.

    Pros

    Great Culture and a lot of smart people. The company spends a good amount of money on training and caring about it's people.

    Cons

    I'm not sure that they know what they want to be when they grow up at the end of the day and outside of cash, Singtel doesn't really add value.

    I worked at Amobee full-time

    Pros

    The leadership team is one of the best I've encountered. They look to help you grow and succeed and pay you well when you do. There is autonomy but also an expectation for high performance, which most people achieve due to, again, leadership, resources available to help you learn and advance and a strong market presence.

    Cons

    Since the acquisitions of Kontera and AdConion there is a greater emphasis on youth rather than experience, but the kids they chose are top notch,

    Advice to Management

    Don't lose perspective on what the company was like before the major acquisitions and incorporate some of the great qualities of that era with those of the new era.

    I have been working at Amobee full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great technology, but not taking advantage of it to help drive customer success

    Cons

    Sr. leadership team has instilled a culture of "just do as I say" starting at the top. If you aren't part of the legacy regime, you won't have a voice or any respect. And if you aren't part of sales, you will not be promoted or eligible for any awards programs. I've also noticed several males in sales have been promoted much faster than similarly skilled females, so having a female CEO isn't doing anything for diversity.

    Advice to Management

    CEO should pay more attention to the strategy of the company vs. promoting herself as a motivational speaker. Constantly talking about the success she had 20 years ago isn't beneficial to her current role, nor does it translate to the current market challenges.

    - Management/Seniority plays favoritism and does not often reward for hard work or compensate based on actual experience
    - Expected to not have a work/life balance
    - Morale is very low amongst employees often times
    - No 401K match
    - Due to high stress and large workloads you will burn out very quickly

    Pros

    Great place to work. Family environment and everyone is very accommodating and truly want to see you succeed.

    Cons

    There isn't always a clear path to advancement. People tend to stay with the company for an extended period of time, so moving up isn't as easy as you might like even if you are an excellent employee with a good track record.
