    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

    The best part of the company is the people! The team is incredible, very passionate, dedicated, collaborative and smart. There is a constant drive to innovate and the company has amazing technology and works with great brands and agencies. It's a high performing environment and dynamic industry - rapidly evolving and you will constantly learn, adapt and be challenged. Amobee offers great benefits and very much cares for it's people. People are hard working, kind, and a group you would want to grab a beer with. You feel like part of a team. It's also great to see female leadership in the tech industry.

    Cons

    In the advertising technology industry, you will constantly have to learn, adapt, innovate, and be willing to be challenged. If you don't thrive in dynamic environments, this is not the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    It's exciting to have so many incredible offices we have around the world. The teams would love to hear more of what is happening in Australia, Singapore, Israel and Europe.

    I worked at Amobee full-time

    Pros

    Engaged in learning, big office, contributes to community

    Cons

    Everyone drinks the kool-aid and it is very clique-ish. Felt like a sorority and not very diverse. Too feminist feeling

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying so hard. The company feels very fake and the pressure to fit in or be a certain way derives people of true individuality. Don't force people to participate in activities they don't want to. The conformist atmosphere is not fun (SD office).
